UPDATE (Dec. 20, 2016, 12:07 p.m.): Elite Security has announced it has fired the security guard seen masturbating in a viral video recorded at last weekend's Chargers game at Qualcomm Stadium.
SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A short clip captured at The Q during last weekend's Chargers-Raiders game is going viral. But it's not the action on the gridiron that is creating a frenzy -- and there's now an investigation into the matter.
The worldwide web is abuzz over a San Diego Chargers security staffer purportedly being unnecessarily rough on himself.
The viral clip shows a young field crew member wearing a red jacket and black trousers standing in the back of the end zone watching the Chargers cheerleaders perform a routine. The camera then zooms in to capture what is being alleged by the fan who posted the video.
"Guard was openly masturbating RIGHT IN FRONT of us during the game, while watching the cheerleaders jump up and down!!! I can't believe this was allowed. Such a complete disregard for women's rights and public decency! I am truly horrified at this guard lack of respect for women's rights," wrote lov_app on Instagram.
Team officials learned about the video on Monday night and have started an investigation.
"We're obviously concerned and taking it seriously," said Bill Stetson, Chargers' Director of Security. "We're looking into it to determine exactly what happened, and if it happened, who is responsible."
