Rapper Lil Wayne was present at an anti-violence charity basketball team where he was sponsoring a team, but it seems he didn’t take the event’s message on board.
Apparently, Wayne got so incensed at a series of calls made against his team at the Celebrity Basketball Game in St. Louis, Missouri that he chased the referee off the court and a brawl broke out.
TMZ Sports reported:
The brawl went down in St. Louis on Sunday night. Wayne’s Young Money team was taking on a team coached by the event promoter, Loose Cannon Slim — and we’re told Coach Weezy thought the ref was blowing a bunch of calls.Advertisement
In the video, Wayne is running after the ref with his whole crew behind him — and the ref is wisely retreating into the crowd. Witnesses claim Wayne had already spit on the ref at this point.
Maybe Weezy felt the best way to show the importance of anti-violence programs was to incite violence? Or, maybe not…
