LaLa -- Racist Mavericks Fans Attacked Me First

5/12/2009 6:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LalaCarmelo Anthony's fiance LaLa Vazquez has released a statement claiming racial taunts and violent threats from Dallas Mavericks fans incited her at last night's NBA playoff game:

"Obviously the play-off games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs/threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was unacceptable. The fans were totally out of control.

What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn't show the abuse that was taking place."


Footage shot at last night's game showed LaLa cursing and getting hostile as security tried to escort her out of the stands.

The Mavs and the Nugs are set to face off again tomorrow night.

Uh oh. Here it comes. Just wait and watch them. The true nature of the inherent evil of white men has been exposed. And you think LaLa has seen their racist venom. Wait until you see what they are going to post here. They will not take what she said laying down. They are going to try and blame her and her son, for the fiasco while using racist language. Somehow her color sparked their rage and she will be to blame. Just mark my words, the reason our ancestors called them blue eyed devils will be revealed following my remarks. They cant help themselves. They are almost worse then their grandfathers. Watch now...as they prove their true nature...........in 1, 2, 3, 4.....

What would you expect from a bunch of no class redn*ck white people from South. She should have bussed the sh&t out of their a^s. Typical wh^te fans. Try really hard to couch the game but lack the talent or skills to play. Take the white trash to dump.

Whatever    

First of all she's LYING her ass off. Insider information by someone who witnessed the incedent: LALA including her entourage were the one's making RUDE remarks about the MAVS, and they were being loud about it. Then they starting rubbing in the fans faces, well what does a fan do, DEFEND their team. Shut the HELL Up LALA, can't take the HEAT, then next time keep your mouth SHUT. Guess what #4, I'm not WHITE!!! Go MAVS

Typical. Blacks can call whites racist, but when whites retaliate it is a different story. Sorry folks but it will never - ever - be equal. Someone will ALWAYS play the race card.
