Nick Young playfully defends GF Iggy Azelea after diss by Tyler, the Creator

If any man disses someone's beautiful girlfriend, the disser should look over his back. Luckily, Nick Young has a sense of humor.

The 28-year-old Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard and small forward is extremely lucky to have vlouptuous Australian female MC Iggy Azalea, 23, on his arm. What man would keep calm if some guy just took a verbal swipe at his girlfriend, especially if she looked like Azalea (born Amethyst Amelia Kelly in 1990 in Sydney)? Why, someone who has his temper in check, that's who.

Tyler, the Creator, the leader of the hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, went on BET's 106 & Park for an interview on May 15 to rib the starlet out of the blue:

“She stinks. She got shots in her thump. I want real booty. You feel me?”

This implied that Azalea, who recently released her new LP, The New Classic, on Island Records, had injections in her backside, which gave her the curves she is famous for having. Azalea did not find this funny - she lashed out at the Odd Future frontman on Twitter:

"Tyler the creator is beyond immature. I've always believed you had something more to offer the world, Shame to see you be so rude... People that make enemies and talk shit about ppl they've never even said hi to trip me out. I see it all the time... Strange world."

Her man, also known as Swaggy P, chimed in on Twitter on May 16, according to HipHopDX.com:

"If ppl dnt hate then it want be rite @IGGYAZALEA it smell good to me."

You mean, "If people don't hate, then it won't be right." Right, Swaggy?

In any case, he doesn't sound all that angry about the "diss", which Tyler later apologized for:

"BABY GIRL THAT WASNT ME I DONT DRESS LIKE THAT WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT?"

Which Iggy accepted:

"Do ya thing, get your promo no skin off my back. the energy you put out is what you eventually get back...doesn't effect me."

The Creator (born Tyler Gregory Okonma in Los Angeles in 1991) then squashed the Tweet beef:

"SUCCESSFUL, TROLL SUCCESSFUL. IGGY I DIDNT MEAN TO HURT YOUR FEELINGS."

So that was that.

Not the first hot water Tyler has landed in - he recently was arrested in Austin during the SXSW festival

Columbia, SC, we apologize for this "non-news". LOL

Booty is in the eye (and nose) of the beholder.

'Nuff said.
