D’Angelo Russell Is Trending: Twitter Reacts to Rookie Snitching, Lakers Isolating Him

Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers have been making headlines for all the wrong reasons this week.  On Monday, it was their 48-point loss to the Utah Jazz (which tied a franchise record for largest margin of defeat) that had everyone talking.  Today, it’s the team’s decision to isolate D’Angelo Russell after he leaked a video of teammate Nick Young admitting to infidelity that has sent Twitter into a frenzy.

In case you haven’t heard, Russell recently taped a video of Swaggy P, in which the latter, not aware he was being recorded, admitted to cheating on his fiancee, Iggy Azalea.  Some believe that this rift was the reason for the team’s 123-75 loss on Monday, and now no one is sitting with Russell at breakfast and even Lou Williams refused to sit next to the rookie guard in the team’s locker room.

It’s a pretty crazy turn of events for a team that has already had their fair share of struggles this season.  Here’s a look at how Twitter has reacted to this latest fiasco:

Looks like D’Angelo is going to have a tough time living this one down.
