2 Chainz is upset because the NBA did not include him in this year’s Celebrity All-Star game in North Carolina.
The rapper took to his social media to voice his anger towards the league for never inviting him to play. According to a post on his Instagram, he says that someone from his camp apparently insulted a female NBA staffer at the game, which in-turn, made the commissioner upset.
“He was wrong and I apologized on this behalf,” 2 Chainz admitted. However, Chainz feels like the NBA is treating him like a 2nd class celebrity, and has not accepted his apology.
“IM ONE OF @nba BIGGEST SUPPORTERS and BARELY GET ‘COURTSIDE’ TIX.”
