The New York Knicks have banned a rude fan who spit on Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoffs at Madison Square Garden.
The fan, who was in the second row, spit over those sitting in the front row -- including rapper 50 Cent and his girlfriend.
The ball club investigated the incident and concluded the fan was not a season ticket holder.
"We investigated the matter and determined that this patron, who is not a season ticket holder, did indeed spit on Trae Young, and for that reason, he is now banned from The Garden indefinitely."
The statement continued:
"We apologize to Trae and the entire Atlanta Hawks organization for this fan's behavior. This was completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our venue. We have turned the information over to the appropriate authorities."
The team did not address reports that Knicks fans received handouts instructing them to chant "Trae Young is balding!"
Young responded to a video of the spitting incident on Twitter Thursday morning.
"Damn Crazy! @50cent y'all good?! Crazy ! Keep ya mask on my boy "#ThatsJustChildish."

Ohio State University has banned a female massage therapist after she reportedly had sex with multiple Ohio State Buckeyes football players.
The university banned the massage therapist whose license was revoked by the state following an investigation, including interviews with individual players.
Ohio State released the following statement on Thursday, alleging the massage therapist targeted football players in a scheme to engage in sexual acts with them.
"In March 2021, the university became aware that the State Medical Board of Ohio investigated an independent massage therapist who engaged in inappropriate and exploitative behavior targeting members of the Ohio State football team. The university has confirmed that the Medical Board has taken action, and this individual has had her license permanently revoked...
"Her actions were part of a scheme to exploit football student-athletes and were in violation of her state license. In addition, Ohio State does not believe the massage therapist's actions trigger NCAA rules or form the basis for NCAA violations. While no self-reporting is required, Ohio State proactively shared the exploitative behavior with the NCAA, and a report has been made to the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office." Read more...
A Pee Wee league coach who punched a 9-year-old boy during a youth championship game has been banned for life from coaching in the league. Cell phone video shows the coach punch the boy like a man, knocking the child down twice.
When the little boy began to cry, the coach kicked him off the field and called another player off the bench to replace him.
Equally as bad are the grown Black men standing around watching the abuse and doing nothing to stop it.
The incident occurred during the American Youth Football Championships in Kissimmee, Florida, according to EURweb.com. The unnamed coach apologized for his behavior.
A loyal reader writes:
Have you seen the video of the little league coach, violently assaulting one of the boys he coaches? I would be UNDERNEATH the jail.
It reminds of something that happened years ago when I lived in Columbus, Georgia. Both my friend and I were single mothers and our sons played on a little league football team. Something very similar to this happened to her son. She did nothing, even participated in calling her own son "a p-ssy a-girl" for crying AFTER the coach slapped him around for fumbling the ball. Her son was 7 at the time. The coach was in such a rage he cursed me out for telling him that was foul for how he ABUSED her son. He was later arrested and found guilty of causing bodily injury to a child, she was charged with something too, I don't recall what it was. Our sons are all around 23-26 years old now. My sons are both in the military and doing very well. The son that she didn't defend that day on the field, is a known woman beater, and is in and out of jail, her eldest son, has very little to do with her.
While I know this is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to the left of this story, we as mothers, (if we're single mothers) have a greater responsibility of protecting our sons from abusive men (coaches and the like) and not allowing toxic masculinity to be disguised as "manning up" our sons.

We need to talk, Mark."

In February, Boosie was banned from a Planet Fitness gym in Georgia after he and his son disparaged Dwyane Wade's transgender child, Zaya Wade.
In May 2020, Boosie was heavily criticized for another deleted video in which he described hiring adult sex workers to service his teenage son and nephew. At the time he said p0rnography was more appropriate for children to watch than "cartoons with two men kissing.

50 Cent has been banned from Instagram.com following his comments on an IG meme posted by Snoop Dogg mocking fellow rapper T.I.
Pocket change was banned from the social media network after he commented on Snoop's meme which mocked T.I.'s comments about accompanying his daughter, Deyjah Harris, to a gynecologist.
T.I. made the comment in a podcast that has since been deleted.
In response to a question about having the "sex talk" with his 18-year-old daughter, T.I. joked, "Not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen."
Despite the fact that T.I. was only joking, the story went viral and drew rebukes and condemnation from fellow celebrities and fans.
In response to Snoop's meme mocking T.I., 50 Cent wrote, "Yeah man, what the fuck was T.I. talking about. LOL."
Fiddy's Instagram page has since been deactivated without explanation.
The last time Instagram dropped the hammer on the rap troll was when he leaked an image of Teairra Mari from her sex tape. Teairra complained and Fiddy's IG page was deleted.
Teairra ultimately lost a revenge porn lawsuit and 50 Cent was awarded legal fees. His IG account was also reinstated.
Tariq Nasheed was banned from entering the United Kingdom, where he planned to screen his new movie Hidden Colours 5. The self-professed "race baiter" learned he was denied entry by the UK government when he tried to board a plane to England at LAX Airport last week.
