The former Clemson star quarterback has responded to the apparent incident in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Deshaun Watson was asked to leave a Tuscaloosa, Ala. bar on Friday night, allegedly by two former Alabama football players.

It's still unclear why Watson was there and what exactly happened, but reports that the incident took place at Innisfree Irish Pub.


Watson, who guided Clemson to a national championship win over Alabama in January, was in Tuscaloosa for some reason Friday but bar patrons including two former players weren't pleased with his presence.

Alabama fans told Watson to leave Innisfree Irish Pub, one of Tuscaloosa's most popular bars, according to Twitter user @doctor_59 who uploaded a video of the proceedings.

There are multiple videos of the incident.

This morning, Watson took to Twitter, apparently addressing the incident.

"Tunnel vision," he tweeted.

The bar addressed the incident in a Facebook post.

"Unfortunately a customer attempted to invoke the right to refuse service on our behalf and after being identified, was immediately asked to leave the premises following the incident," the bar wrote on Facebook. "We apologize for any inconvenience this incident caused to our customers. We appreciate anyone that chooses to visit our establishment and hope to continue welcoming sports fans for years to come."
