Squid Games creator Hwang Dong-Hyuk has dunked on Lebron James after the Laker commented on the iconic Netflix series. During a post-game press conference, Lebron shared his thoughts to Los Angeles teammate Anthony Davis, criticising the show’s ending. Speaking to The Guardian, Hwang fired back at the NBA star’s critique and ideas about a sequel, delivering a cheeky blow at Space Jam 2.
“Have you seen Space Jam 2? LeBron James is cool and can say what he wants. I respect that. I’m very thankful he watched the whole series. But I wouldn’t change my ending. That’s my ending. If he has his own ending that would satisfy him, maybe he could make his own sequel. I’ll check it out and maybe send him a message saying, ‘I liked your whole show, except the ending'”, said Hwang.
Shocked about how he became embroiled in such a beef, Lebron jumped on Twitter and reposted the response.
This can’t be real right??!! I hope not 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/IGbqEvFGud
