Lakers superstar Russell Westbrook causes a stir on social media with his latest outfit at the MetGala event.
Controversy’s favorite child, Russell Westbrook, never fails to make the headlines, whether on or off the court. Brodie is not one to play according to public perceptions, for which he continues to pay the brunt. The former MVP is one of the most polarizing athletes in American sports history.
While nobody can question Westbrook’s will towards the game, his demeanor and style of play is a constant subject of discussion. The former OKC superstar doesn’t hesitate to speak his mind, more often than not landing him in trouble.
However, nothing tops Westbrook’s recent outing with the Lakers. Brodie became a source of mockery for his turnovers and inability to shoot. It won’t be wrong to describe the two-time scoring champ’s first season with the purple and gold as horrid.

Nevertheless, the scrutiny isn’t limited to his on-court performances only, his appearance at the MetGala event being the latest example.

Adhering to his not playing according to public perception policy, Westbrook never fails to turn heads with his outfits. While some may applaud him for being bold, others find it absurd.
In his recent appearance at the MetGala event, the nine-time All-Star was spotted in a rather unusual outfit sending social media into a tizzy.
