And a day later, he was still mad. Lee told ESPN on Tuesday that the he’d been using the same Madison Square Garden entrance for more than 20 years. He dismissed the claim that he and Knicks owner James Dolan resolved his beef during halftime at Monday’s game as “Garden spin.”
Lee, who won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for “BlacKkKlansman” in 2019, erupted after he attempted to use the arena entrance reserved for employees and the media, and was stopped by security, the New York Post reported. He was asked to use another entrance.
In the video, Lee can be heard yelling.
“No one told me,” he repeats. “I’m staying here. And if you wanna arrest me like Charles Oakley, go the fuck ahead.”
