Tencent held their annual Super Penguin League (超级企鹅联盟) Super 3 basketball championship on November 7. It was the blue team versus the red team. The blue team was led by Li Chen (李晨), Bird Zhang (张远), Pinkray, and more. The red team consisted of Li Wenhan (李汶翰), Dylan Wang (王鹤棣), Wang Anyu (王安宇), and more. Dylan Wang started trending on Weibo when he was seen cursing out a referee and seen leaving the court angrily.
During one of the plays, Dylan Wang was trying to block a player’s shot and fell to the floor, but he got called for the foul instead. Dylan Wang was extremely displeased at the call and was seen cursing at the ref, “You are a f*cking stupid c*nt.” He is seen leaving the court angrily, taking off his jersey, and kicking items in his path. Dylan Wang’s team also ended up losing.
Dylan Wang went to Weibo to apologize for his behavior at the game. He wrote:
“As an adult, once again I made the mistake of not being able to control my temper. I apologize to the production team and to Brothers (Dylan Wang fandom name).
I really couldn’t accept the referees’ officiating during the 3vs3 tournament in the afternoon and the 5vs5 tournament at night. There were a lot of irresponsible penalty calls today that impacted the direction of the match and also destroyed my persistence that I have maintained for 3 years.
Whether it’s in life or at work, I will persist in basketball my whole life.
It’s been hard on each Super Penguin League worker. Thank you guys for creating a dream stage for us.
Thank you to the brothers and sisters of both teams and also each team mate and opponent.
Lastly, thank you guys. You guys have accompanied me for three years and yet I still haven’t fulfilled my promise. Sorry, Brothers.
This year’s dream is over. Will be returning to the cast and resume filming.”
Dylan Wang is an avid basketball player and fan. He was once gifted an autographed Lebron James jersey from Wang Ke on “The Inn S2”. He cried upon getting the gift and said Lebron James has been his idol since he was young as he admires his vigor and presence on court. He views him as a role model and someone to emulate.
