At least one Knicks fan went too far with their Trae Young hate.
The Knicks banned a fan after video showed him spitting on the Hawks star during Game 2 of the teams’ playoff series on Wednesday night.
“We investigated the matter and determined that this patron, who is not a season ticket holder, did indeed spit on Trae Young, and for that reason, he is now banned from The Garden indefinitely,” the team said in a statement. “We apologize to Trae and the entire Atlanta Hawks organization for this fan’s behavior. This was completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our venue. We have turned the information over to the appropriate authorities.”
Young brought attention to the situation after video started circulating on Twitter. The guard tweeted at rapper 50 Cent, who was sitting in the vicinity of the loogie. The saliva, though, seemed to hit fitness influencer and model Cuban Link, who was sitting next to 50 Cent.
The Garden crowd has been chanting “F–k Trae Young” consistently throughout the first two games of the series, which now heads to Atlanta even at 1-1 after the Knicks’ 101-92 Game 2 triumph.
