This is LaLa’s side of the story via necolebitchie.com:
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 fiancÃ©e and child.
â€œObviously the play-off 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,â€ states LaLa. â€œThe fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didnâ€™t show the abuse that was taking place.â€
LaLa Vazquez was asked to leave her courtside seat in Dallas last night after an unspecified â€œincidentâ€ with a couple of old white ladies sitting behind her.
It seems that things at the American Airlines Center were actually much uglier than we realized last night. In addition to Vazquez, Maverick fans got into shouting matches with Kenyon Martinâ€™s mom (there was even a report that someone threw a beer on her) and Martinâ€™s girlfriend, Trina. Martin himself was distracted by the incidents during the game and a Denver assistant actually went into the stands during the game to check on their own fans.
Asked if the game was hostile, [Coach George] Karl said: â€œI would probably use an uglier word than hostile. I donâ€™t think (the fans) were very classy.â€
This shit sounds like a classic case of White versus Blacks. Notice how LaLa, Trina and Kenyon’s mother were the only ones to get into some drama. I honestly think there’s way more to this story. I HIGHLY doubt LaLa would get so ghetto to the point of wanting to f*ck those white woman up. Look at that video, she looks PISSED THE F*CK OFF! At the end of the day, I ain’t mad at cha’ LaLa! I’m on your team! Let them know what time it is. Sometimes in life you can only be but so nice, that people think they can run over you. That’s when the ghettoness needs to come out! lmao….What’s funnier is she’s always playing the nice host on those reunion shows, where the guests get ghetto…my how the tables have turned! I still ain’t mad tho! get em!
