When is this SHIZZZZZ going to stop???
Last month, Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake were the last victims to get SWATTED, and even after California senator Ted Lieu thought up a proposal for an "Anti-SWATTING" bill, he was swatted… and now, Magic Johnson is unfortunately the latest victim of the horrible prank.
However, unlike the rest of the practical jokes, LAPD knew that the basketball legend was NOT in danger and only sent out a few patrol cars to scope out the scene.
The prankster who called 911 claimed that several shots were fired at Magic's El Lay mansion and that someone was also being held hostage, but after cops arrived at the former hooper's home, they were able to CONFIRM that nothing was going on.
In the latest 'SWATTED' events, helicopters, a SWAT team and a whole mess of cops were sent out to celebs' homes, but now that the police caught on to the madness, they know exactly what to do, which is… stop listening to BS phone calls.
UGH! These horrible antics need to stop because they're super dangerous!!
