Lil Wayne ejected from Heat, Lakers game for “gun gesture”?
I’m sure you all read the story, or heard Lil Wayne’s claims on Twitter yesterday about being removed, by police, from the Lakers, Heat game in Miami. Wayne claims that he was asked to leave because he was rooting for his team, the Lakers, while a Heat spokesperson, Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA Today that Wayne left on his own accord, but the real story seems to be emerging today, as reports indicate that Lil Wayne was indeed asked to leave the game, but not because of his fandom. It seems Wayne was given the boot because of an altercation with a Heat fan, one in which Lil Wayne pulled a page from Gilbert Arenas and made a “gun gesture”.
This report coming from Kurt Helin of NBC Sports Pro Basketball Talk:
“But Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA TODAY Sports in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.”
“Sure. He just chose to leave of his own accord. I’m not buying that either. You know there’s a middle ground and the USA Today found it.”
“Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game. Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun,” tweeted Danny Vega, who said he was at the game and sitting near Lil Wayne. “Weezy just got into argument with security at the #MiamiHEAT game. He got kicked out for gun gesture.”
So, it appears as if the rabbit hole got deep for a second, but thanks to an eye witness, Danny Vega, who was in attendance, Wayne was given the “criminal treatment” for, well, acting like a criminal. Perhaps the “thug life” mentality is best suited for rap videos and in Wayne’s best interest to keep at home when attending NBA games. This is Wayne’s second ejection from an NBA game in less than a year, and the rapper should see a ban if he’s to keep acting up at these events.
