Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis was escorted away by Lakers security after an on-court altercation between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets players during Saturday night’s game in LA. Kiedis yelled profanities and flipped off Rockets point guard Chris Paul and the rest of the visiting staff following Paul’s brawl with Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo.
Later on, viewers reported seeing Keidis return, sitting courtside next to longtime friend and RHCP bassist Flea.
NBA fans took to Twitter to share TMZ video of the incident as well as their reactions. “If this was a regular joe/fan, he would have got kicked out of the building,” wrote one user. “I don’t ever want to feel like I did that day,” wrote another Twitter user, quoting Keidis’ iconic lyrics from RHCP’s “Under the Bridge.”
Flea also posted an Instagram photo of the two at the game, with the caption: “At the lakers game last night with my dear brother. It Got crazy at the end, but man I get so satisfied, deeply drinking in the depth and beauty of the game. People operating at a high level in so many dimensions. Cerebral, physical, spiritual, emotional, unspoken and telepathic communication.”
