Attention hipsters who have flocked to Brooklyn like fruit flies to week-old pineapple:

Spike Lee is NOT a fan.

During a speaking engagement at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute last Tuesday, the proud New Yorker and legendary director was asked about how he feels gentrification has affected his old neighborhood.

Well, he was very nearly asked it, anyway. Before the question could even be uttered in its entirety, Spike had broken into a seven minute rant on gentrification, Brooklyn, race relations, and, yes, hipsters.

At one point the Crooklyn director blamed hipsters for driving up housing prices in certain neighborhoods, implying that it was essentially impossible for more legitimate residents to even live in these suddenly expensive places anymore.

Spike admitted:

This is just further proof that the WHOLE world is Lupita Nyong'o's red carpet!!

The exquisite 12 Years A Slave actress recently made her way to Madison Square Garden where she attended her VERY first basketball game before she took her talents to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon!

And, we love that purple ensemb on her! Fresh from her interview! She just proves that she's not afraid to re-use the same outfit, AND why not? She looks INCREDS!

Lupita wasn't alone either, as she sat with some of her fellow celebs such as John Leguizamo and Edie Falco! She even got to snap a pic with Spike Lee, because that's pretty much a MUST if you're a celeb attending a Knicks game!

Oh, and did we mention she had an AH-mazing view as she sat courtside? Seriously, she posted a video of the action to Instgram and you can practically smell the players' sweat through the screen!

Ok, that's kind of gross. But you get the point!

Ch-ch-check out her video of the action …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

It looks like these guys had a VERY busy weekend!

In case you missed it, One Direction took their talents to 30 Rockefeller Plaza and absolutely BLEW OUR MINDS with their performance on Saturday Night Live!

But before they showed off their funny bones on SNL, Niall Horan and Liam Payne decided to go on a man date and take in some sportsball!

The lovely duo made their way to Madison Square Garden to watch the New York Knicks DESTROY the Orlando Magic and it looks like they made friends with some of the locals!

And when we say locals, we mean none other than court side native Spike Lee! The iconic director is a known Knicks fan, but it looks like he might be a full on Directioner now! Besides, Niall and Liam kind of proved to be good luck charms for his favorite team! Just sayin'!

At long last, Mike Tyson is making his return to the big screen!

We can't wait to see if for ourselves!

Holy hatchet-induced headaches, Batman — this trailer is off the motherlovin' chain!!!

Spike Lee rolled some dangerous dice when he decided to revisit Chan-wook Park's triple-cray cult classic, Oldboy, but his gutsy gamble may have paid off!!!

Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen headline the remake, but don't let their Electra-ic electric good looks fool you — this action-heavy flick is NOT for the feint of heart!!!

Ch-ch-check out the gratuitously gory red-band trailer (above)!

Whoa!!! A Samuel L. Jackson sighting!!! Cray cray!!

If this film is anything like its South Korean counterpart, it should pack one hell of a mindf**k, too!

Oldboy hits theaters October 25th.
