According to Bleacher Report, fans of New Orleans Pelicans got a special treat when Will Ferrell visited during half time to shoot a scene for his upcoming movie “Daddy’s Home.”
Attempting to shoot a half court shot with the cheerleaders lined up alongside him, Ferrell’s character went nuts and fired the basketball at a cheerleaders face as if he was playing dodgeball.
Not sure if fans were in on what was going on but they all boo’ed Ferrell off the court while security carried him out.
So don’t expect any file charges towards the actor because we’re sure the cheerleader knew in advance that her face was going to meet the basketball that night.
Either way, that looked like it hurt.
