Furious Everton fans were kept away from the players by police and stewards after their dismal 3-0 defeat at Bournemouth.
It is the second time in a matter of days that the Toffees have been beaten by the Cherries, losing 4-1 in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
Saturday’s defeat leaves the Toffees in 17th place in the Premier League after losing back-to-back top-flight games.
In a video circulating online, Alex Iwobi could be seen giving his shirt to a fan, before appearing to have it fired.
Boss Frank Lampard attempted to mediate between fans and players as he sought to defuse the situation after offering a gesture of apology.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford rushed outside to apologize after the disappointing result, where he was then embroiled in a heated exchange with a supporter.
Captain Seamus Coleman also tried to calm the loyal travelers down, but to no avail.
Incredibly, former boss Rafa Benitez had two more points for Everton at this stage of last season.

Bournemouth opened the deadlock in the 18th minute through Marcus Tavernier after Pickford knocked down Dominic Solanke’s initial effort.
Kieffer Moore doubled the hosts’ lead soon after, before Jaidon Anthony ended the game in the 69th minute.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Lampard admitted Everton fans deserved better after their poor performance.
He said, “I can’t talk you through this [what happened on the pitch between the fans].
“But the fans have their due to be unhappy today because they have traveled to support the club and they are sometimes brilliant for us.
“And today they can show what they think about the game because they probably feel like me.”
Commenting on the display from his side, Lampard remarked: “They were more lively than us, more aggressive than us.
“And it’s the players’ responsibility and mine because I can’t run onto the pitch, but I can talk to them before the game and at half-time.
“But they have to show the action on the pitch and they didn’t show that today.”
