Toronto Raptors fan gets rejected in front of national TV audience

- May 1st, 2014

There was magic in the air at the ACC Wednesday night.

Confetti, limited edition lint rollers and, well, this guy getting completely rejected in front of a national audience.

As far as rejections go, it doesn’t get much worse.

Close to a million Canadians watched this dude kiss air after his [insert your best guess here] gave him the cheek – one of the most humiliating things that can happen to a man, who puts everything on the line when leaning in for a peck.

Something similar happened to me during junior prom in 2003.

Maybe she was just a disgruntled Brooklyn fan, upset after seeing her Nets drop Game 5.

An upset girlfriend? A date gone awry? You be the judge.

Better luck next time, big guy.

Right, Mutombo?

    So when something similar happened to you in 2003, did someone video tape it without your permission and publish it to the internet?

    2 people, who are not famous, and not looking to become famous, are video taped without the consent and the humiliation of one gets trotted out onto the internet. Did you ever stop to ask yourself it you should put this up?
