Leave LaLa AlonePublished by Runteldat on Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 12:00 pm.
Folks were giving LaLa Vasquez all sorts of grief over being ejected from Monday’s game between the Denver Nuggets and the Dallas Mavericks.
It seems many were quick to believe that an overzealous LaLa got out of pocket with Dallas fans over her baby daddy Carmelo Anthony and was told to take her happy self out of the building.
LaLa however has responded to all the chat across the web via a statement from her publicist:
La La Vazquez became distressed during a heated playoff game, after being verbally attacked by some opposing fans, who were using racial slurs, calling her child crude names and throwing ice cubes. She sent her son home early and was preparing to leave herself when she was physically pushed. Although shaken, she left the premises on her own will and is happy to be at home with her fiancée and child.
“Obviously the play-offs games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs/threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was unacceptable,” states La La. “The fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn’t show the abuse that was taking place.”
In other words, LaLa wasn’t the jackass, some of the Mavericks fans were. I can’t say that I’m surprised. You won’t just find the Stanky Legg down in the D. Just look at Mark Cuban.
