The Patriots are not messing around.

Following Tyreek Hill's 75-yard touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter, which gave Kansas City the lead at the time, several fans taunted the wide receiver in the end zone, including one fan tossing beer on him.

A day later, it's been learned the fan has been banned for life from future Gillette Stadium events.

"Gillette Stadium security has identified the fan who violated the fan code of conduct by tossing beer onto a player during the game last night," the Patriots said in a statement. "The matter has been turned over to local law enforcement and the fan will be sent a letter of disinvite to all future events at Gillette Stadium."

Hill dismissed what happened after the game.

“My coach told me, ‘Don’t get emotional. Don’t get mad about it because it comes with the territory.’ I’m not mad at all,” he said.

New England came away with a 43-40 win despite Hill's three touchdown game.
