Beating Victim: 'I Rather Eat Feces Than Dodger Dog'

6/28/2011 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man who had a verbal altercation with San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium shortly before Stow was brutally attacked claims Stow was inciting Dodger fans by screaming, "I rather eat my own feces than eat a Dodger dog."

TMZ has obtained a text message sent yesterday by Juan Banda, the man who had the pre-attack run-in with Stow in the stands. TMZ posted video of the altercation Monday morning.

A friend of Banda's texted him that he saw Banda on TMZ.  Banda texted back "They are not saying they are looking for me....right?  Reason I was arguing w him was because he [Stow] crossed the line ... he yelled out, 'I rather eat my own ficies (sic) than eat a dodger dog.'"

Banda continued, "I asked Merced [a friend Banda was with at the game] to watch my back and told him [Stow] it was one thing to root for your team but you are crosing (sic) the line ... he didn't say much ... neither him or his buddies who were with him ... they were just trying to excuse his words."

Banda continued texting:  "Nothing happen and I went back to my seat. ... What I can't understand is where were his buddies when that [the attack] happened ... he was not alone during the game ... he was with 3 or 4 friends ... he did have a mouth though!"

And Banda texted, "Maybe he said the wrong thing to the wrong guys!"

We tried contacting Stow's lawyer, but so far our calls have not been returned.

What is wrong with you tmz? It is incredible how you try to blame the victim! Nothing he might have done, short of 1st attacking someone, justified what was done to him. You are disgusting.

A sad fact of the world we live in is this; we don't have the freedom of speech that we think we have. People are not as civilized as we think, we live among animals that don't know how to ignore someone that doesn't share their opinion. Although Mr. Stow certainly did not receive to get the beating that he did, this is a lesson to everyone, that you cannot run your mouth without a compromising your safety. Angry, violent people don't wear a warning label.

All your nasty comments blaming the victim and saying he deserved the beating, only proves what everyone says about sports: the fans are crazy, testerone filled time bombs! Mix that with booze and what have you got? Murderers looking for a chance to beat up someone! Boy did your Mom's fail in raising you uncouth hicks! Have you ever heard of just letting it go? Walking away? Just using insults back? No one should ever be beat to death over which team is best! What childish nonsense, grow up and take some anger management classes. Usuing your fists is a low class, unevolved way of handling things. Two kids have lost a Father over a stupid baseball game.

What is wrong with all you thugs and losers? Violence is NEVER the answer. EVER. Its what insecure , nobodies, who have something to prove because they have nothing going on in life so they try to be big and bad and talk about when people deserve "Beat downs". Violence does nothing for anyone. This poor man and his family did NOT deserve this. You are all sick disgusting disturbed people who need serious help. This poor mans entire life is ruined.

No he didn't deserve a beating even if he was talking back.

Anyways, some thigns I don't understand:
1)Brian was with some friends who witnessed the terrible beating. They tried to fend off the attackers but to what extent? How did they help?
2) This happened in broad daylight?
3) How long was he beaten for. I would imagine a beating would be fairly quick but if they beat him into a bloody pulp- enough to leave him severely damaged for life it must have been a longer beating. For the duration of the beating...how long did it take for the friends to step in? Where was security.

4)How is it that some one took a video of the victim before the video but then no one when he was being hit.

Where there other people witnessing the beating? Just the friends? Any on lookers?

All these questions need explaining.

What kind of low life punks do the dodgers have for fans? Bad mouthing a hot dog is crossing the line and makes stow a loud mouth punk?

But seriously people don't talk mess about the dodgers. A fan might recognize you when they take your fast food order.

This is all sickening!!! Seriously the ones out there defending both sides. Bottom line no one but someone knows what happen out there and until it comes out.. Everyone out there is forming there own opinion. People talking about Civility should practice what they preach.. Spreading Hatred either way is Nonsense!! Talking about the whole Mexican Race, Blaming immigrants, And labeling all Mexicans as Gang members. Please we are in America Right!! No ones life is more superior than any one elses. God forbid if it was the other way around and the Giant fan beat a Dodger Fan. I think no one would care and probably blame the Dodger fan for mouthing off.. Some people out there are using this to sterotype a specific Race. In the end u are as disgusting as the person who beat the Giants fan into a coma.

I was sitting right in front of Stow. He wasn't starting anything. If anything he was scared the whole game. And the whole thing with banda is a joke that guy banda is an idiot. When stow said the comment he was sitting with his friends and was talking to them in joking matter. That Banda guy completely over reacted also. You should ask banda when he got up and started thrusting his hips and stow and his buddies talking about ************* and stuff trying to instigate a fight with them. real appropriate at the game huh banda but you were offended about a feces comment. Stow was a complete victim in all of this and at no time was he trying to instigate anything with anyone. Dodger Fan
