Last week, Charles Barkley wished violence against Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green after an on-court confrontation with Rajon Rondo. Days later, Barkley issued an apology, deeming his comments to be inappropriate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, comedian troll Andrew Polk wished DEATH on the baller during yesterday’s Game 4 against the New Orleans Pelicans with the following Tweet: “I hope Draymond Green gets shot in the face as soon as he leaves the arena (in New Orleans Sunday); which looking at the city-wide stats is like 37 percent,” Green responded after the game, saying, Draymond Green responded: “If you feel the need to do something like that because of basketball, I feel sorry for you... It’s kind of sad someone would take this that serious. At the end of the day, it’s a game. Making death threats and talking about your life, I just pray he gets the help he needs because I personally don’t care that much about it.” As a result, Polk received widespread backlash forcing him to delete his tweet and then his Twitter, before coming back to apologize:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “#Money23Green I tweeted a very dumb thing meant to be an edgy joke. As a frustrated basketball fan, I go through ups and downs, and as a comedian, I don’t always express those in a digestible way. I wish no harm to anyone over a simple game, and I apologize.” However, his apology was not received well b anyone, including Warriors teammate David West, who tweeted “Man f*ck you.” Polk has since deleted his Twitter again.
