Lil Wayne ejected
"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."
That caused quite a reaction on Twitter, as Lil Wayne has nearly 10 million followers. Yet he's not the only one out there with an account of what happened Sunday. A fan named Danny Vega, who said he was near the rapper, had a different version of the incident:
"Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game, Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun," tweeted 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."
Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA Today in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.
NBA fans and fans of Lil Wayne will recall a similar disagreement during last year's Western Conference Finals, as the rapper claimed he wasn't allowed entry into Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena. A spokesman for the Thunder later said Lil Wayne wasn't allowed into the building because he didn't have a ticket.
