The rapping legend Master P appeared at the NBA Celebrity All-Star game looking… well, looking like a lot of people would look at his age. Or, according to Twitter writers, looking like a can of biscuits.
Twitter erupted in laughter. Such are the perils of being famous.
Other people also thought Master P looked like a “busted can of biscuits.” Yeah, that was pretty inspired.
The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game has the annual tradition of kicking off All-Star Weekend as the first event. This year, a celebrity lineup takes the court at the Superdome in New Orleans. Lil Romeo joined Master P on the court, as many noted.
ESPN’s Sportscenter hosts Michael Smith and Jemele Hill are squaring off as the coaches of the two teams. Smith will be joined by Draymond Green and Rocsi Diaz to fill out the West’s coaching staff. For the East, Hill is joined by Kyle Lowry and Fat Joe.
Some of the notable names on the West are Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, former NBA point guard Baron Davis, WNBA player Candace Parker and rapper Master P. Read more about the rosters here.
But the focus on Twitter anyway was on Master P.
The body shaming was in full force. Master P was born on April 29, 1970 in New Orleans, in case you’re curious. That makes him 46. He stands 6 foot 3 inches tall. Most sites say his weight is “unavailable,” so that’s anyone’s guess.
The jokes flew. Many of them revolved around food.
His socks and shoes kind of clashed.
Some people were relieved that nothing bad had happened to Master P. It’s always a scary moment when you see someone you like “trending” on Twitter.
It made some people’s Friday night (although probably not Master P’s).
Other people just became nostalgic.
Some people decided to be charitable.
Here are some of the other best Twitter reactions to Master P’s time on the court.
Here are the game’s rosters:
