The Atlanta Hawks are embroiled in a heated playoff series with the New York Knicks, and Game 2 on Wednesday (May 26) night showed how serious, and some would say overboard, fans are taking things.
Knicks fans have been targeting Hawks player Trae Young, from mocking his fear of birds to passing out fliers telling fans to make fun of Young’s bald spots. Video of Wednesday night’s game also showed that some fans sitting courtside actually spit at Trae during the fourth quarter.
While Trae didn’t seem to realize what was going on, as video of the incident spread across the internet, he responded. The incident happened in front of 50 Cent, who was sitting courtside with his girlfriend, and Trae stated, “Damn… Crazy ! @50cent y’all good?!”
Fif shared highlights of the game on Instagram, but he has yet to respond to the incident, which you can check out in full above.
