Comedian Wishes Death on Draymond Green, Green Prays “He Gets The Help He Needs”

Last week, Charles Barkley wished violence against Golden State Warriors’ #DraymondGreen after an on-court confrontation between Green and playoff opponent #RajonRondo. Days later, Barkley issued an apology, deeming his comments to be inappropriate.

Since then, another public figure has wished violence against the power forward over the game of basketball. In fact, comedian Andrew Polk wished death on the baller amid yesterday’s Game 4 against the New Orleans Pelicans.

“I hope Draymond Green gets shot in the face as soon as he leaves the arena (in New Orleans Sunday); which looking at the city-wide stats is like 37 percent,” comedian Andrew Polk tweeted on Sunday.

Green responded after the game, saying, “If you feel the need to do something like that because of basketball, I feel sorry for you.”

“It’s kind of sad someone would take this that serious. At the end of the day, it’s a game. Making death threats and talking about your life, I just pray he gets the help he needs because I personally don’t care that much about it.”

As a result, Polk received widespread backlash that prompted him to delete his tweet and then his Twitter, before coming back to apologize.

“#Money23Green I tweeted a very dumb thing meant to be an edgy joke. As a frustrated basketball fan, I go through ups and downs, and as a comedian, I don’t always express those in a digestible way. I wish no harm to anyone over a simple game, and I apologize.”

However, his apology did not sit well with anyone, including Green’s teammate David West, who tweeted “Man f*ck you.” Polk has since deleted his Twitter.
