Latest & Greatest Metta World Peace & Ron Artest Mockery on Twitter

Metta World Peace James HardenMetta World Peace elbows James Harden

So, guys. Have you heard of this dude, Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest? He's an NBA player for the Los Angeles Lakers and pulled an incredibly douche-tastic move in his latest game: he blatantly elbowed James Harden, player for Oklahoma City Thunder, in the head, giving him a concussion!

Metta World Peace (can we just call him MWP for now?) was immediately ejected from the game and is currently awaiting punishment from the league. Let's hope he's suspended for multiple games! This guy needs to learn a lesson!

But nothing can compare to the hilarious Tweets that have come out from this whole debacle, especially due to the irony of MWP changing his name to "Peace" and then committing such a violent act. See video of the elbowing and our roundup of Twitter reactions after the jump.
