You Won’t Believe The Tattoo Nick Young Almost Got Before Iggy Azalea Saved Day

If you’re getting a permanent tattoo, you probably should make sure you have the correct spelling first — we’re talking to you, Nick Young.

The Los Angeles Laker has been in the news plenty of late after teammate D’Angelo Russell videotaped Young talking about his exploits with women other than fiancée Iggy Azalea. But he got caught up in a different embarrassing situation Wednesday night on Twitter.

It all started with this tweet from Young, and we’ll let you use the ‘ole Google machine to find out what “Becky” means.

And Azalea followed with a series of tweets about a time when Young almost got “Born Reble” tattooed on his back.

Yikes. Young certainly is lucky to not have that permanently on his back.

But apparently this is just one big misunderstanding that started with a Twitter hack.
