The Philadelphia 76ers are selling some Australian meat pies at their concession stands during home games in honor of Ben Simmons, who’s from Australia.

As a way to bring some publicity to all this, the Sixers sent ESPN reporter Darren Rovell a sample, and he set to work sampling on Monday morning.

Rovell loved the pie, but he didn’t do a proper job handling it. For those who don’t know, you eat those by hand, not with a knife.

Many people chimed in on this topic throughout the day, letting Rovell know he messed up.

Finally, making this point extremely clear, the Queensland Police got involved.

Let’s just say Darren Rovell won’t be making that mistake again.
