Although it's been more than five months now since D'Angelo Russell accidentally leaked a video of Nick Young bragging about cheating on his then-fiancée Iggy Azalea, the incident is clearly going to remain tethered to the Lakers' 20-year-old point guard well into the foreseeable future. But don't just take our word for it. Instead, watch the TMZ Sports video above, which features Russell being heckled outside of the Staples Center while walking into a Drake and Future concert in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. You can hear several men yelling "Hide your phones!" in Russell's direction as he makes his way into the building.
While Russell was zoned in and able to ignore the hecklers for several seconds, it does appear as though they eventually touched a nerve. Towards the end of the clip, Russell turned around and appeared to yell "Eat a d*ck!" back at the guys who were heckling him before disappearing into the "Summer Sixteen" experience.
As you probably remember, Russell made headlines back in March after the aforementioned video that he secretly recorded while Young talked about being with women other than Iggy hit the internet. It reportedly led to a falling out with his Lakers teammates and forced Russell to make an apology for what he had done. "I am sick," he said at the time. "I am sorry about recording the video. I can’t repeat myself enough on that. I am sorry I recorded that video. I feel horrible. I wish this never happened."
Young and Azalea eventually broke off their engagement in June.
As for Russell, it's clear that he's going to have to get used to hearing people shout things like "Hide your phones!" at him from now on. So a valuable piece of advice for him: Never let them know what gets to you, man. Otherwise, you're just going to hear even more of it.
