Add Kanye West to the list of people not so fond of the Clippers’ recently unveiled mascot, Chuck the Condor.

The rapper was apparently watching the team’s game against Cleveland on Sunday when he had a thought and expressed it on Twitter, addressing Clippers owner Steve Ballmer by name.

Now Chuck may be an extremely funny-looking bird with an odd fashion sense, but he seems to know how to handle himself against a hip hop star who has taken his music in a more artistic direction than his radio hits from several years ago.


And that’s a good thing because Ballmer doesn’t really seem to have his mascot’s back here.

Something tells me this might not end well for the funny-looking bird.
