Was Lil Wayne kicked out of Heat-Lakers game?
During Sunday’s Miami Heat win over the LA Lakers, rapper Lil Wayne tweeted that he was ejected from American Airlines Arena for cheering for the visiting team.
“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.
He then added an epithet: “[Expletive] da Heat.”
Another version of the story, reported by a fan named Danny Vega, was also posted to Twitter. Vega said, “Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game, Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun.”
Vega then posted shortly after stating, “Weezy just got into argument with security at the #MiamiHEAT game. He got kicked out for gun gesture.”
Miami Heat’s spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA Today in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.
As for the game, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade led the Heat to an impressive 107-97 win over the Lakers, so it’s a good thing that Lil Wayne left.
