In a 2018 photo of the couple, fans flooded the comments, saying Patterson’s wife wouldn’t have married him if he wasn’t in the NBA. Patterson’s response was not expected and left most users speechless.
“Love is love,” he wrote. However, things went left when another fan joined the conversation, saying, “But it’s not tho bro you grew up loving our women why wait till you get some real money for your perspective and even if you wasn’t in the NBA worked at Walmart I’m Toronto you wouldn’t stand a chance bro.”
In response, NBA player fired back, saying, “So, I should settle for a bulldog and act like I’m happy with my life and preach ‘keep it in your race’ to the world as if Dr. King didn’t fight/die for equality.”
After the now deleted comments resurfaced, Patterson took to social to apologize.
“My sincere apology to the individual and his family for the cruel comments we exchanged on that day long ago..,” he said.
