2:15 PM PT --
Lachey has issued a statement about the situation on Twitter ... saying, "For the record, i was not kicked out of the chargers game for excessive 'trash talking'. no, that honor belonged to the guy in front of me!"

He added, "i simply don't appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction."

Lachey also praised Chargers fans ... saying, "aside from a few exceptions, i had a great time hanging with Charger fans all afternoon. honestly, some of the nicest fans around."

Nick Lachey -- a HUGE Cincinnati Bengals fan -- was escorted out of the stands at the San Diego Chargers football game this weekend ... after security decided his TRASH TALK crossed the line.

It's unclear exactly what Nick said to piss off stadium security ... but after he was ejected, the former boy-bander actually BRAGGED about getting the boot, tweeting:

"Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals"

A short time later, AFTER Cincy defeated the crappy Chargers, Lachey tweeted again:

"Bengals win again. i'd talk trash to everyone in SD, but what's the point? you already had me kicked out of the stadium and you still lost."

As for the kid in the Chargers gear in the photo with Nick, he was just a random fan -- and after the game, the kid's dad fired off a tweet to Lachey:

"Thanks for taking the pic with my son and being cool to us. Congrats on the Bengals win!"

FYI -- you can probably expect MORE trash talk from Lachey this season, his Bengals are 7-5 and are tied with Pittsburgh in the race for the 2nd Wild Card playoff spot in the AFC.

The last celeb I'd ever guess would get kicked out of an NFL game.

Bragging about beating one of the worst teams in the league is pretty weak.

So what he was trash talking, I probably see worse being said on my Facebook page on a Sunday. At least he wasn't rude to the kid with the charger hat. I see it this way women get a pass for being bitchy once a month, men should get a pass during football season for saying inappropriate things.

In other words, he is the type of fan you hate to sit anywhere near. He has a big mouth and can't sit down.

Being a fan and being passionate about your team winning is one thing. But the state of our sporting events now days is crossing the line. You have so many **** faced people who take their "team spirit" to extremely dangerous levels. Usually its the trash talking that leads to fights and an environment that is no longer family friendly. If security deemed his trash talking too much, then it probably was. Here in CA, after a couple serious near fatal fan fights, we don't put up with it anymore. PS what do you expect to happen when you trash talk at someone else's turf?

It's always stylish to get kicked out of a professional football game, something to be proud of.
