ESPN host and former NFL star Pat McAfee is ready to take on the AI football fans who showed up at the Los Angeles Chargers game on Sunday.
The 36-year-old former football player turned media star said on Monday’s edition of his YouTube series, The Pat McAfee Show, that he wants to “cut the heads off” of AI robot fans at the Chargers game.
Los Angeles lost 36-34 to the Miami Dolphins in a high-octane, entertaining game over the weekend, but the action in the stands at SoFi Stadium is what has McAfee excited.
The ESPN host expressed his displeasure with the Chargers’ decision to have a series of AI robots sit in the crowd.
“They had fake people at that game in LA.
“Are you kidding me?
“There are fake people, fake A-people, AI robots sitting in the crowd watching the game like they know what’s going on,” McAfee said.
McAfee continued, expressing excitement about the idea but couldn’t believe there were robots in the stands and threatened to solve the problem himself.
“Just know this, you little fake idiot. I would cut off both of your heads if I had to.
“We would pull the plug on you, knock you over and never get up again.”
“I don’t like that this is happening,” McAfee said.
McAfee wasn’t alone in his concerns about the robots at the game, as many NFL fans flooded social media with reactions.
One said: “Charging stations had to hire AI robots to fill the seats and Dolphin fans were still louder.”
Another: “Scary. Imagine looking to your left and seeing a robot!”
And a third: “So the Chargers are filling the seats in the stadium now???”
However, the robots weren’t there to fill the stadium; Instead, they were part of a promotion for the upcoming film titled “The Creator”:
