New York rapper Ja Rule isn’t laughing right now. The hip-hop veteran went online this past weekend to go to war against sports network ESPN for trolling him with pure savagery.
Ja Rule Criticizes ESPN
Heading into Monday, Rule hit up his Twitter pages to unload on ESPN. Ja took personal offense to the media platform trying to clown throwback footage of him not getting a loud applause at a Milwaukee Bucks game.
“I usually mind my business and ignore the white noise but I think it’s very unprofessional of @espn to try and diminish or discredit who and what I am to this culture… whoever post for your social accounts @espn needs to be FIRED… … Be more professional @espn and tell your little social team to have some RESPECT we speaking on an ICONN… #ICONN … So let me get this straight @espn your letting your social team that represents your brand and social accounts with over 16 million follows try and clown me over what was clearly a technical issue with the equipment and for what likes??? @espn clout chasing now lmao… #ICONN” -Ja Rule’s Twitter
Ja didn’t stop there. He also shared footage of Bucks’ star Giannis Antetokounmpo coming to his defense about what really happened in the throwback footage.
“Like I said it was a technical issue but y’all always trying it… 🤣 @espn STOP PLAYING WIT ME… 🤡 they even try to get @Giannis_An34 to say something bad about me lmao #Foh #thedevilisalie #ICONN” -Ja Rule’s Twitter
Wait, There’s More
On Sunday, ESPN flexed its social media trolling goals at Ja’s expense. It shared the throwback Bucks game footage with Rule appearing to not get any crowd love.
“Never forget this Ja Rule moment 😂” -ESPN’s Twitter
Before You Go
A few days ago, Ja Rule went to his social media pages to challenge the rap game to a Verzuz challenge. Ja asked hip-hop if anyone wanted to see him in a classics battle.
