The temperamental midfielder was given his marching orders for two yellow cards in his side’s 1-0 defeat to Leicester on Saturday.
The Championship table-toppers fell behind to a first-half Jamie Vardy goal, and were chasing the game when Barton was given his marching orders.
After appearing to elbow Gary Taylor-Fletcher and receiving a yellow card, Barton disputed the decision with the referee and was sent off in the 83rd minute.
Fast forward to the one-minute mark here to see Barton’s latest discrepancy.
The result means that Leicester have drawn level on points with QPR, while Burnley took their chance to leapfrog the Hoops in top spot in the division.
Barton, as usual, has protested his innocence on Twitter and feels he has been hard-done by.
