Lil Wayne Ejected from Heat-Lakers Game for Gun Gesture
Rapper tweets about incident, Heat denies it ever happened
Rapper Lil Wayne was at the Miami Heat – LA Lakers game over the weekend but, unlike other fans in the venue, he did not get to see the end of it. He was escorted off the premises by security after reportedly making a gun gesture towards a fan.On his Twitter account, the rapper insists he did nothing wrong but was simply kicked out of the game, no reason or apology offered, Yahoo! Sports notes.
Moreover, Wayne is pouring fuel on the fire by launching expletives at the Miami Heat team, somehow suggesting he was kicked out because he was rooting for the Lakers.
“So I'm @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow!” the rapper tweeted, as per the publication.
He also added, “[Expletive] da Heat.”
Also on Twitter, accounts of the reason he left the game vary, Yahoo! Sports further says.
For instance, another fan, who claims to have been sitting next to the rapper at the time this incident went down, says that Wayne made a gun gesture towards another man, which is when security stepped in and asked him to leave.
“Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game, Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun,” Twitter user Danny Vega says, as cited by the sports publication.
“Weezy just got into argument with security at the #MiamiHEAT game. He got kicked out for gun gesture,” he adds.
A spokesperson for the Miami Heat insists neither of these stories is accurate, insisting in a statement that no beef happened during the game.
In fact, the publicist says, security didn’t even come close to the rapper during the game in question: he just got up and left of his own accord, for his own, personal reasons.
As we also reported a short while ago, Lil Wayne also made headlines during the Super Bowl, when he got into a heated exchange with a cameraman who had touched him.
