Wayne attributed the incident to a miscommunication with security.

Lil Wayne used his weekly spot on UNDISPUTED to elaborate on his comments about being mistreated at a Lakers game last night. Wayne said he was trying to return to his seats when a staffer asked him to use another entry point. However, Wayne returned to the staffer after not wanting to disturb other fans via the other exit. The rapper noted he felt the staffer's frustration at his return was out of line. Additionally, Wayne noted that he was only at the game to fulfill a brand deal but that the experience had left a bad taste in his mouth.

The incident first came to light when Wayne tweeted about his experience last night. "Wow! Got treated like sh-t at the Laker game just now but I figured they’d do me that sooner or later either bc of what i said abt AD or simply bc they don’t fwm which I been got that vibe from em as well so all good I get it. F-ck em. It isn’t what it isn’t. I’m used to it," Wayne tweeted.

Lil Wayne Taps Ja Morant To Be The Next "Face Of The NBA"

Meanwhile, Wayne said last year that he wants Ja Morant to be the face of the NBA following the retirement of LeBron James. "To me I think the obvious answer is Ja," Wayne said in the video below. "Because the NBA is entertainment. What I mean by that is there was always a Michael Jordan, just like, you know like God. You gonna watch these Atlanta Hawk games just to see what Dominique, just to see if he gonna get 'em one off. I'm going to watch these Portland games to see if Clyde gonna get him one. Ja's teams are actually competitive when he's there and he's doing his thing," Wayne told Bleacher Report's Taylor Rooks.

It's not the first time that Wayne has spoken in support of Morant. "Do y’all know that boy? ‘Cause I don’t. I know him from dunking and jumping, and I only started knowing him when I started paying attention to him around his last year of college. He come from like a town with 3,000 people. Like, what? What y’all expect? Y’all gave him $200 million," Wayne told the All The Smoke podcast while defending Morant's actions.
