NBA Twitter account refers to Dave Chappelle as ‘a fan,’ feels internet’s wrath
NBA social team, what are you doing?
Someone behind the NBA’s official Twitter account made a grave error Sunday night when he or she referred to Dave Chappelle simply as a “fan” of fellow comedian Amy Schumer.
Chapelle and Schumer sat court side at Sunday night’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. The NBA’s subsequent tweet features a GIF of the pair hanging out, with the caption: “Amy and a fan on @NBAonTNT. #NBAGIF”.
As Uproxx points out, the tweet was likely a joke — referring to the obviously famous as “fans” is a common tongue-in-cheek Twitter practice.
Still, many rightfully considered it an inexcusable offense. Take a seat, NBA.
