MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA - FEBRUARY 01: Ja Rule performs onstage at ONE37pm x Dwyane Wade's Masters of the Mic Karaoke at Night Two of BUDX Miami by Budweiser on February 01, 2020 in Miami Beach, Florida.

Ja Rule recently took to Twitter to criticize ESPN, calling the network “unprofessional” and “disrespectful.” “Very disappointed to see how UNPROFESSIONAL and DISRESPECTFUL @espn is allowing their social team to be if you’re not holding them accountable that means you’re complicit with oblivious slander and defamation to your 35 million-plus audience… Duly noted…,” Ja Rule tweeted on Sunday (July 26). 

Ja Rule was upset because someone on ESPN‘s social media team took to Twitter to make fun of the “Always On Time” rapper.  “Never forget this Ja Rule moment,” the network tweeted on Sunday (July 26) along with a laughing face emoji and an old clip of Ja Rule asking a Milwaukee Bucks crowd at halftime if they were “reaadddyyy?” for him to perform.


“So let me get this straight @espn you’re letting your social team that represents your brand and social accounts with over 16 million follows try and clown me over what was clearly a technical issue with the equipment and for what likes??? @espn clout chasing now lmao…,” Ja Rule continued. 

“Like I said it was a technical issue but y’all always trying it…@espn STOP PLAYING WIT ME…they even try to get @Giannis_An34 to say something bad about me lmao.”
