You can hear George Brett tell the person, “This is the last f***ing time.”

George said he regrets the tone of his comments and meant nothing by them. George indicated he just wanted the individual to leave him alone after relentless requests for multiple autographs. He admits a poor choice of words.
“Yeah, you suck dude, f*** off and stop being a creepy as hell stalker. You need serious counseling. You really drove all the way to the airport to harrass Brett, again??” — M. Owens
“Looks like to me since you filmed it that you have harassed him enough to know he was eventually going to lose it and thought you would make him look bad. Sorry bro, not feeling sorry for you. If you are selling his autograph, then he should have kicked your ass!”– K. Chadwick
