JiDion is a well-known YouTuber recognized for his extravagant pranks, some of which occur at prestigious sporting events.
In the past, JiDion has been expelled from athletic competitions, such as the US Open, for getting a haircut while seated courtside. He also pulled the same stunt at an NBA game the previous year, but faced no consequences for that specific incident.
While JiDion’s pranks often involve him sitting on the sidelines, his latest joke led to his expulsion from the entire game. On July 19, he uploaded a prank video where he decided to play tricks on both players and fans at a WNBA game between the Minnesota Lynx and the Dallas Wings.
During the match, JiDion complained about the heat to a referee, resulting in the ball flying into the crowd, right to where he was seated.
JiDion managed to retrieve the ball but instead of returning it to the referee, he attempted a jump shot and failed.

As a result of his stunt, he was ejected from the game by a member of the arena’s staff who informed him that shooting the ball was not permitted.
This exchange was caught on tape by JiDion. The staff member told him, “We will send you home tonight. You might get a trespass from the team. You should have not taken a shot during the game.”
Despite the consequences, JiDion remained undeterred and attended another WNBA game in Los Angeles. He decided to lie down on some courtside seats, complete with a blanket and pillow, and took a nap.
However, he was once again removed from the game and subsequently banned from all NBA-related events by the staff.
JiDion’s fans have responded to these pranks by spamming sleeping emojis on the WNBA’s official Instagram account, in line with the title of JiDion’s video: “Don’t Sleep on the WNBA!”
It is worth noting that JiDion has a history of being expelled from sporting events due to his antics, and has even faced criminal trespassing charges in the past after pulling a prank at a Texas University.
