Gabrielle Union trolls Jimmy Butler for bench antics with Dwyane Wade (vid)

Gabrielle Union had an issue with some footage posted on Twitter involving hubby Dwyane Wade and his Chicago Bulls teammate, Jimmy Butler. So she took to Twitter herself and trolled Butler by uninviting him to an upcoming barbecue.

It all started when video surfaced of Butler and Wade sitting on the bench during Monday’s 113-82 throttling of the Detroit Pistons. Butler can be seen interacting with someone off-camera while gesturing to Wade. The footage is arguably innocuous in and of itself, but the tweeted caption — “When you’re trying to hook up your boy with girls at the club” — definitely steers the narrative into less savory territory.

Union, upon evidently seeing the tweet herself, took to Twitter to call out Butler for his antics by uninviting him to the aforementioned barbecue.

The tweet almost certainly was in jest, and any doubt whatsoever was set aside when Butler took to social media to clarify what exactly was going on with him and Wade.

Butler posted the video himself and added the clarifying caption, “when you talking about who should get the ISO with [Bulls [trainer Chris Johnson] but IG people play too much … still funny…”

Well, it appears the entire sordid but in the end meaningless saga was quickly put to bed.

In other words, Butler can probably expect an invite to the next Wade-Union barbecue.
