Indiana Athletic Director Rips Students For ‘F*ck You’ Chant … Knock It Off!!

Breaking News

Indiana’s AD just went scorched earth on the basketball team’s student fanbase … saying a “F*ck you” chant that rained down at Assembly Hall was “embarrassing and unacceptable.”

IU students and supporters heckled Purdue sophomore Matt Haarms relentlessly during a home game Tuesday … clapping along to a “F*ck You, Haarms” chant throughout the night.

The cheer was so loud … it could be heard on the television broadcast — which REALLY pissed off school AD Fred Glass.

“The profane chants directed at a specific Purdue player were not part of your positive contributions,” Glass said in a letter to student ticket holders Wednesday.

“They were embarrassing and unacceptable and reflected poorly on you and the Indiana University. Knock off the profane chants, and please help those around you do the same.”

Glass added, “You and Indiana University are better than that.”

For Haarms’ part … dude clearly wasn’t bothered by the obscenities — the 7-foot-3 center tipped in the game-winning basket with just 3 seconds left to play, giving the Boilermakers the 48-46 W.

The schools won’t face off again this season unless they meet up in the Big Ten Tournament … but seems pretty clear the game will be chant-free if that does happen.

NBA’s Bobby Portis Rips Chicago Bulls for Trading Him

EXCLUSIVE

It’s been 2 weeks since Bobby Portis was traded to the Washington Wizards, but the dude is clearly still upset with the Chicago Bulls … telling TMZ Sports how the team straight “blindsided” him.

“I was very disappointed,” Porter tells us … “I was getting ready for a game, not knowing it was gonna happen … you know, getting blindsided.”

“But, I’m just happy to be with a team now that really wants me. I can’t wait to get back started.”

The 24-year-old was drafted by the Bulls in the 1st round of the 2015 NBA Draft — and obviously felt he would be a Bull for a long time. 

But, Chicago sent him packing in a deal for Otto Porter Jr. — and now Portis is focused on settling in with his new team in his new city. 

“They have a good basketball culture here,” Portis said … “I’m just happy to be a part of it.”

By the way, the Wizards are only 2 games out of the playoff race — and Portis is optimistic they can make a serious run. 

In fact, Portis says he likes his new team so much … he’s down to help recruit free agents this offseason — even giving a little D.C. pitch to Kevin Durant!!

Kim Kardashion West Rips Fashion Nova For Ripping Off Her Look

Kim Kardashian West is going after fashion companies like Fashion Nova for jacking original designs and promoting them as their own, or even worse — making it seem like she’s in cahoots.

KKW says it’s “devastating” to see brands “rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas.” Kim doesn’t name Fashion Nova  … but it’s pretty obvious they’re the target.

She’s specifically referencing the black, one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress she wore at the Hollywood Beauty Awards Sunday night — which instantly went viral.

The next day, a knock-off version of that dress popped up on FN’s website, but only for waitlist. Kim claims this is because the dress obviously hasn’t been made to sell yet, and it’s simply a ploy to attract customers by tricking them into thinking Kim has a relationship with the company.

Kim adds … “I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent.”

She’s also warning folks not to believe what they see online, emphasizing she’s built relationships with amazing designers to pull off her famous looks, but — “I don’t have any relationships with these sites. I’m not leaking my looks to anyone, and I don’t support what these companies are doing.”

As you may know … celebs like Cardi B and Amber Rose have collabs with Fashion Nova. Kim’s making it clear — she doesn’t.

Kentucky Governor Rips Weezy Over Halftime Show … ‘Tired, Has-Been’

Breaking News

The Governor of Kentucky HATES Lil Wayne — and seemed disgusted someone would book the rapper to perform with Imagine Dragons at the college football National Championship game. 

Weezy joined the rock band during the halftime show of the Clemson vs. Alabama game and performed 2 songs — first, he did “Uproar” followed by a rap verse in the Imagine Dragons hit “Believer.”

Most people LOVED the “Believer” verse … but not Gov. Matt Bevin, who went to social media to vent about how much he hated the performance. 

“Way to ruin an entertaining @Imaginedragons half-time concert with the weird rantings of a tired, has-been like @LilTunechi,” Bevin said.

“One act still rising…The other, not so much.”

Damn, Gov! 

Some Weezy supporters have fired back at Bevin on Twitter, saying things like … 

“Well if there’s anyone who knows weird, tired rantings when they see ’em, it’s you.”

And … “Imagine me draggin’ deez nutz across yo face.”

Good times. 

The biggest critique of Wayne’s performance was his outfit — jackets on jackets on jackets … with a striped scarf, floppy hat and big Elton John sunglasses. 

So far, no response from Wayne. 

Hedo Turkoglu Rips Enes Kanter Turkey Assassination Claims Are ‘Delusional’

Breaking News

Ex-NBA player Hedo Turkoglu is going OFF on fellow Turkish hooper Enes Kanter — claiming Enes is “delusional” and “irrational” if he REALLY thinks the Turkish government is plotting to kill him. 

Kanter has been beefing with Turkey president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for years — often comparing Erdogan to Hitler. Kanter has been branded a terrorist in Turkey and is reportedly facing prison time if he ever returns. 

Just last week, Kanter said he would not be traveling with the NY Knicks to the U.K. to play the Wizards out of concern he would be more susceptible to Turkish assassins who want him dead

Enter Turkoglu … the President of the Turkish Basketball Federation who just came out SWINGING at Kanter — saying Enes’ story is flat-out wrong and dangerous. 

“I received with concern the news about the delusions targeting the Republic of Turkey of Enes Kanter, who pledged his loyalty to the ringleader of Fetullashist Terrorist Organization (FETO), and his statement that he would miss the game in London due to fears of being assassinated by Turkey.”

“We know that he has not been able to travel to many countries due to visa issues since 2017. In other words, Kanter cannot enter the U.K. not because of fears for life as he claims but due to passport and visa issues. This being the long known truth, he is trying to get the limelight with irrational justifications and political remarks.”

“Such remarks constitute another example of the political smear campaign Kanter has been conducting against Turkey as well as his efforts to attribute importance to himself by covering up the contradictions in his sports career.”

“Kanter not only targeted the Republic of Turkey, governed by the rule of law, with unjust accusations but he also regarded the British security forces as weak and attempted to harm Turkish-British relations.”

“It is obvious that this person’s remarks are irrational and distort the truth.”

So far, no response from Enes — but he’s not known for keeping quiet … so expect a reaction soon. 

Lonzo Ball Rips Ex-GF For ‘Deadbeat Dad’ Comment … ‘It’s Really Not Funny’

Breaking News

Lonzo Ball was pissed to be called a “deadbeat dad” by his ex-GF … and when the Lakers star confronted her about the comment — he told her, “It’s really not funny.”

Denise Garcia — Zo’s baby mama — went on social media in October and was asked to “blink if Lonzo is a deadbeat dad” … and she blinked with both eyes while laughing.

Cameras caught Lonzo confronting Denise over the post on the Ball family’s Facebook reality TV show … when he ripped into her for making the accusation.

“Came to see the deadbeat, huh?” Zo asked … “That was fun for you? You had fun? You’re laughing, but it’s really not funny though.”

Lonzo wasn’t the only one pissed about the comments … LaVar Ball was livid as well, saying, “How do you call somebody a deadbeat when you just had the baby?!”

In fact … the Big Baller was caught on camera talking to his wife about her exercise program when he said, “Are you getting in shape for a reason? So, you can knock the hell outta Denise?!”

For her part … Denise explained to Lonzo the whole thing was meant as a joke — and she apologized to the L.A. star.

“I shouldn’t have done it at all. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it.”

Lonzo added, “Denise wants me to be more present during the weekends with her and Zoey, I see where she’s obviously coming from … I’m trying to make an effort to get there as much as possible.”

Bob Arum Rips Mayweather’s Tokyo Fight … ‘It’s A Joke!’

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather‘s fight with Tenshin Nasukawa is a complete joke and is nothing but a money grab … so says Bob Arum, who RIPPED Floyd for even taking the fight.

“It is a non-event. It is not a sporting event,” Bob tells TMZ Sports.

Arum was out at Craig’s this week when he made sure to stop for our photog, to crap all over Mayweather’s highly-anticipated New Year’s Eve exhibition in Japan.

“That’s pretty much a joke, isn’t it? I think so. I think so. Because, it’s not a real fight … the people who are watching that nonsense are pretty well jerks.”

In fact … Bob tells us he thinks the ONLY reason the tilt is going down is ’cause Mayweather straight-up NEEDS the cash!!

“He needs money for Christmas and the New Year, and this is a good way for him to make some money. God knows Floyd always needs money!”

We also asked Bob about the Oscar De La HoyaDana White feud … and he tells us why it’s “stupid” — and, then says, even at 87 years old he could kick the crap outta Dana!!!

Tarik Cohen Rips Fantasy Football Owners ‘Get The F*ck From Under My Comments!’

Breaking News

Tarik Cohen doesn’t give a damn if he cost you money in your fantasy football league Sunday … ’cause the Bears RB says everyone hating on him needs to SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

“Hey, Fantasy owners. Ya’ll get the f*ck from under my comments. Talking about my weak performance. We got the dub. Bear down.”

Cohen’s been a nice surprise on the fantasy scene this year … posting double-digit points in 9 out of 16 weeks — which ain’t bad for a guy most thought would be the Bears’ backup RB.

But the Chicago superstar laid a serious egg when fantasy players needed him most … ’cause in championship week Sunday — he totaled just 19 yards.

Doesn’t seem Cohen cares at all … Bears got the win over the 49ers and now have a shot at the No. 2 seed … and Tarik hit the dance floor like a mad man afterward to celebrate!!!

Saints’ Cameron Jordan Rips Big Ben He Ain’t A Hall Of Famer!!!

Breaking News

Saints superstar Cameron Jordan says there’s NO WAY IN HELL Ben Roethlisberger is a Hall of Famer … saying the Steelers stud ain’t even a top 5 QB of this era.

“I’d honestly put Eli before I put Ben,” Cam says.

The piping hot take came straight from the Saints’ locker room this week … when Jordan scoffed at a reporter’s insinuation that Big Ben is a surefire HOFer.

“Is that true?! Really?! In this era, you’d put him at like a top three of this era?! A top five of this era?!”

Cam certainly doesn’t think so … saying he’d have Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers AND Eli Manning over the Pittsburgh superstar.

It’s a smoldering take from the New Orleans pass rusher — who just made his fourth Pro Bowl — ’cause most not only have Ben as a Hall of Famer, but a 1st-ballot one at that.

Big Ben is a two-time Super Bowl champ, a six-time Pro Bowler AND owns a career 143-68-1 record as a starter.

Best news for all of us?? Ben gets to face off against Cam in a must-win game this weekend … and will have every opportunity to prove Jordan wrong then.

Getchya popcorn ready!!!
