Video: Lil Wayne Shown Swearing Before ESPN First Take Appearance
Rapper Lil Wayne has been seen court-side at NBA games a lot lately, to the point where he complained about Dwyane Wade and LeBron James stiffing him. There are plenty of YouTube videos of Wayne celebrating and apparently yelling at opposing players during games, but Friday morning I got my first glimpse of exactly what Wayne is yelling during those games. The rapper was about to appear on ESPN First Take and the network teased the appearance like this:
How did ESPN let this get on air? Someone has to be responsible for screening the video and it’s not like it’s unclear as to what he is saying. It seems very clear to me what Wayne is saying; “p***y a** n***a.” I’m not sure who he’s yelling at, but while Wayne might have some street cred, I’m fairly confident he wouldn’t fair too well in a fist fight with about 95% of NBA players. ESPN is a subsidiary of Disney and I’m sure that’s not the type of content Disney would endorse. I’m not personally offended by it, but I’m sure someone will be. In any case, I can’t imagine someone not losing their job over this.
