Sean Spicer had quite a confrontation during one of his latest book signing.

TMZ reports the former White House Press Secretary was at a bookstore in Middletown, Rhode Island on Friday to sign copies of his book, The Briefing: Politics, the Press, and the President, when a man approached him. It seemingly started out as a joke when the man, who TMZ identifies as Alex Lombard, brought up how Spicer allegedly tried to fight him back when they were classmates at a prep school. But it quickly turned sour when the man said Spicer also called him the N-word during that incident as well. "You don't remember you tried to fight me?" he said to laughs as he addressed Spicer. "But you called me a n***** first," continued as the crowd fell silent. "Remember? Remember?" he said before a security guard started to escort him out of the building. Someone in the crowd also yelled for the guard to "get him out of here."

The incident, which was shared via The Newport Daily News (above), shows the man but does not catch Spicer's reaction to the accusation. However, this isn't the first run-in Spicer's had on his book run. During a New York book signing, a person in the crowd said he had a "garbage book" and called him a "garbage person." He also accused Spicer of lying as a press secretary and of “lying in [his] book" in which Spicer opens up about his political career.

It's certainly not looking too good for Trump-affiliated folks out in the streets.
