Hopefully everyone was alright.

Family members of soccer star Lionel Messi were reportedly harassed by Chile supporters who were in attendance for the 2015 Copa America final between Chile and Argentina.

According to the report, some fans inside the Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile, lobbed verbal insults toward Messi’s family. One supporter also struck Rodrigo Messi, brother to the four-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Goal’s Ben Hayward provided an update on the situation:

Sergio Aguero’s family were also a target for some of the more rabid Chile fans, but it doesn’t appear they were involved in any physical altercation.

Chile ended up winning the final, 4-1, on penalties.
