Professional athletes are renowned for having potty mouths, which makes sports crew’s job that much more difficult for covering the action on the field and/or court.
Detroit Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson returned to Chesapeake Energy Arena yesterday, November 30, where he began his NBA career with the Oklahoma City Thunder back in 2011. Seeing that his contributions to the team severly pale in comparison to the damage he’s doing in Motor City (he’s currently averaging career highs in points, rebounds and assists), he was naturally met with some heckling. However, his response was arguably the biggest offense of the night as the Pistons were blown out of the building by a score of 103-87.
After being substituted during the game, a fan catcalled to Jackson to which he replied, “Suck my d*ck you b*tch ass ni**a.”
The NBA doesn’t play when it comes to protecting their image and the 25-year-old baller from out of Boston College was hit with a stiff $25,000 fine, as announced by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
Jackson signed a five-year, $80 million contract to be with the team this past summer so it is doubtful he’ll bat an eyelash on his next statement but he may want to keep the lip zipped just as a safety precaution.
