Nick Young Shuts Down a Fan, Insults Her Looks on Twitter

Oh no he didn’t! Shortly after his relationship drama with Iggy Azalea exploded on the Internet, a heated Nick Young took to Twitter on Thursday, March 31, to shadily shut down a fan.

A Twitter user reached out to “Swaggy P” Young, 30, to tell the basketball player that she’d be willing to take over his social media feed.

“@NickSwagyPYoung I can handle your social media for you. My grammar is excellent,” the fan offered. “Holla at me.”

While Young’s follower seemingly just wanted to help him steer clear of spelling errors and improper punctuation, the L.A. Lakers shooting guard was quick to say he wasn’t interested — and cruelly took aim at the tweeter’s physical appearance.

“Yea I can tell from your look you did a lot of homework for others but no thanks,” the athlete shot back.

While there’s no excuse for Young’s rude jab, it’s not surprising that he is a little testy following a messy scandal with his fiancée, Azalea, 25. As Us Weekly previously reported, a video of Young allegedly admitting to cheating on the “Team” singer leaked online on March 24.

In the shocking clip, Young is heard detailing a slew of sexual encounters. His teammate D’Angelo Russell — who allegedly secretly recorded their conversation — asks Young, “You was 30, she was 19? What about Amber Rose, you ain't never tried?"

Young then replied, “No she knows my girl.”

Azalea brushed off her man’s alleged philandering with a cheeky tweet on Wednesday. “hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending… I actually liked his film,” she wrote. “Thanks bro.”

The Australian-born rapper, who said yes to a proposal from Young in June 2015, addressed prior rumors about her man’s wandering eye in an interview last week.

"Hey, that’s part of being a basketball player. There’s always something," she told 92.3 AMP Radio's Shoboy in the Morning. "When people come out and say things, and have their entire [press plan] where they do 700 interviews about the one time you catcalled me out of a car supposedly, to me that takes a bit of the potential authenticity of the story away. I believe my man, and Nick is a super nice guy. This is not the kind of thing he would do."
