Andrew Bogut gets into Twitter fight about fake news conspiracy

8 Comments

Dallas Mavericks center Andrew Bogut has some controversial political opinions, and he’s not afraid to speak his mind. Nor is Bogut afraid to mix it up, initially, with writers and fans on Twitter about those opinions.

On Tuesday Bogut tweeted something nonsensical about Pizzagate, a fake news story that originated from Reddit about a Democrat-led child sex ring.

From Twitter:

Bogut was then pointed to Snopes, a well-known debunking site, to help him understand more about the fake news.

The Dallas center responded, apparently thinking Snopes to be unreliable.

Bogut then got into it with several fans and writers on Twitter, mocking them for trying to expand his research capabilities on the Internet.

He would go on to delete these tweets, but Deadspin’s Patrick Redford caught the exchange via screenshot:

The election has made everybody weirder, including NBA players.

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
