Lil Wayne participated in the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl on Saturday afternoon. The annual flag football event is generally a light affair, but after this year’s game, a cameraman bumped into Lil Wayne and set him off. During the post-game trophy presentation the camera is jostled and then pans to Lil Wayne who is being held back by two teammates and can be heard saying clearly:
“Look at me, motherfucker. Look at me when you apologize.”
That’s a real man that demands respect in that manner. Apparently the same cameraman was involved in a post-game interview a few minutes later, prompting Weezy to go off again.
“Because one of these camera dudes just pushed me just now. And uh… I don’t like to be touched by people I don’t tell to touch me so… I’m gonna get out of the building because if I touch somebody, I go to jail because they not the color of me. They’re not the same color I am so you know how that go. But, to them fuck you.”
I can’t believe that DirecTV would employ a cameraman who would push a celebrity. That seems really inappropriate and unprofessional. It almost doesn’t even seem like something that would happen in the real world. Maybe Lil Wayne will tell the entire story the next time he appears on Around the Horn.
