Wale was seated courtside at last night’s Raptors vs. Wizards game when he and Toronto’s Rudy Gay exchanged some words. To make things worse, play-by-play announcer Matt Devlin added fuel to fire when he said, “I’m sure somebody on Twitter can tell me if they heard of Wale. He’s not Drake for sure.”

Wale got wind of Devlin’s comment and decide that he should give the play-by-play announcer a piece of his mind. Check it out…

Wale didn’t take it so well. The rapper not only tweeted “shut your mouth” to the announcer, but approached him at their broadcast table.

Wale had this to say about the incident via twitter:

“On the Internet when u defend urself ur criticized for being less of a man. There’s NO honor in defending yourself,or your name.,” he tweeted following Tuesday’s game.

“Somebody call u out your name . And you confront them . YOU wrong . So who u cheerin for the people who take insults in stride? Since when” (Wale’s Twitter)
