Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo's headbutt of Wizards forward Moe Wagner led to an ejection, but also an explosion of reactions on Twitter.
Among the voices on social media was Wizards star guard Bradley Beal, who is not with the team in Orlando as he recovers from an injury.
Beal initially reacted to the moment with some choice words, saying that the move by Antetokounmpo was unacceptable. He, however, used an acronym that features words that cannot be written in this story.
We head butting? FOH— Bradley Beal (@RealDealBeal23) August 12, 2020
Then, Beal elaborated on his feeling with some emojis that can be decoded to "angry."
👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽🤬🤬 https://t.co/NVMkaz7FM5— Bradley Beal (@RealDealBeal23) August 12, 2020
Clearly, the guard was not pleased with what transpired, which is understandable. Not only did Beal watch his teammate be on the receiving end of the headbutt, but the action by Antetokounmpo is something that put both of them in danger, as any trauma to the head can be dangerous.
Beal may not be in Orlando to share with Antetokounmpo how he feels up close and personal, but NBA players have shown time and time again that they have no problem trading blows through Twitter. That means this may not be the last statement on the altercation in the bubble.
