Former NFL player Terrell Owens was reportedly taunted by the man whom he hurled a hot cup of coffee at during an altercation at a Starbucks in California on Tuesday.

TMZ said the man, who filed a report against Owens, screamed the n-word at him and called him a "f***ing knuckle-running, spear-chucking, monkey-ass looking motherf*****."

The video obtained by TMZ showed the feud between the ex-NFL player and a man identified as Arman.

It noted that Owens claimed that Arman was the one who got aggressive with him then threw a cup of coffee at him.

But TMZ said that Arman denied this accusation though it was clearly showed on the video. He later on claimed that using such language was acceptable among blacks.

"I use that word and it's very much accepted in the black community," Arman explained.

Asked about his other discriminating remarks, he also claimed that he did in on purpose for Owens.

"I just wanted to make him mad and sad. I'm Middle Eastern and Muslim and not KKK. There's freedom of speech but there's not freedom of attack. He kicked me in the Starbucks," he added in the TMZ report.

Arman also clarified that he did not want to appear bad to his African-American friends. He also said that Owens was violent when dealing with him.

"You're lucky I don't whip your ass. I come from a very politically active family and community who has fought for the rights of any and every group that has ever been racially discriminated against," he told the former NFL player.

In a separate and earlier TMZ report on the incident, the alleged suspect reportedly called cops and a medical team claiming he was injured. However, authorities did not find any trace of the coffee nor an injury.

It added that former NFL player tagged the incident "bizarre and menacing" saying that the guy has been following him a a female friend inside the store and even followed them when they walked to their car.

"He was a fan for a second. Then I didn't give him the reaction he wanted [and] then he turned into a non-fan," added Owens in an laist report.

Owens, according to Bleacher Report, has participated in 15 seasons of the NFL with him being the leading three times in terms of touchdown catches but appeared last in 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals.

"He did have a three-week preseason stint with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012 but was released at the end of August," the same report added.
