The Knicks Call Spike Lee's Complaints Laughable


This week Oscar winning director Spike Lee made a huge scene at Madison Square Garden after being barred from using the employee entrance he has used for the past 30 years [click here if you missed that].

The Knicks call Lee's complaints laughable...

A statement Tweeted from the NY Knicks verified PR account reads,
"The idea that Spike Lee is a victim because we have repeatedly asked him to not use our employee entrance and instead use a dedicated VIP entrance — which is used by every other celebrity who enters The Garden — is laughable."
"He is welcome to come to The Garden anytime via the VIP or general entrance; just not through our employee entrance, which is what he and [Knicks owner] Jim [Dolan] agreed to [Monday] night when they shook hands."
The Tweet included a picture of Spike Lee shaking hands with Dolan and a picture of the employee entrance.





Spike Lee insists no one ever told him about the policy change and claims he had been at the Garden earlier in the week for a theatrical event and used the employee entrance with no issues.

That is all, tired of these celebutards who think they are some demigod. From the "don't you know who I am" to this fuckery, people have real problems in the world and this entitled asshat, and his fuckery. Have a seat Spike!!! way more pressing things going on than your sense of entitlement over a "sports" game.

The Knicks are racist, LA does not treat Jack Nicholson like that and never would. This is a high class problem but it's still fucked up. Spike Lee is black royalty and should be treated as such! The fuq?!

10:23 AM you are absolutely correct !
He's Royalty to that Organization even 2 owners back.
He's not a rapper with an entourage. Over 50 spending $ like that. Any door should be available except the Owners.
RT.

As a Lakers fan, I agree that they would never do Jack Nicholson like that. It’s definitely a first-world problem but to me it’s more laughable that they would think it’s cool to do him like that after all the money, support and publicity he’s poured into them over the years. If they needed him to use a different entrance there’s another way to convey that to him. Shoot, the owner could’ve invited him to dinner and broke it to him or something + through ton a free season. It’s all about being tactful + acknowledging Spikes impact to the organization over the years. If I was him, I’d become a darn Nets fan. Lol
