During the Wizards matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, a tension-filled moment between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Moe Wagner escalated to the point where Antetokounmpo headbutted Wagner, leading to an ejection.

A wild moment featuring one of the biggest names in the NBA, Twitter immediately erupted, with numerous different reactions and emotions being shared through social media.

Wizards star Bradley Beal chimed in, showing dissatisfaction with what transpired.

Others felt as if Antetokounmpo may have found himself in the wrong bubble.

Many saw the move and instantly saw its similarities to other infamous headbutts in the world of sports. Zinedine Zidane's 2006 World Cup fiasco that resulted in a red card was a popular choice, as was John Starks headbutting of Reggie Miller.

Giannis Antetokounmpo ejected for headbutting Moe Wagner in Wizards-Bucks game

Giannis Antetokounmpo ejected for headbutting Moe Wagner in Wizards-Bucks game

Wizards big man Moe Wagner has a knack for getting under the skin of his opponents and on Tuesday night it led to the reigning MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, getting ejected.

Wagner first took a charge on Antetokounmpo and the two were separated. But Antetokounmpo tracked Wagner down and headbutted him. 

Not surprisingly, the refs tossed Antetokounmpo after watching the replay. That will likely cost him some money and possibly a suspension as well. Milwaukee's final regular season game is Thursday against the Grizzlies. They will then begin the postseason as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
