Extended footage from TMZ revealed the former “Saturday Night Live” star patiently posing with a man in a pink shirt twice before as he signs autographs and takes smartphone shots on his way out.
But when the man put his arm around Davidson for a third shot, the comedian pushed him vigorously and demanded his space.
While the mood of Davidson, wearing a Knicks jacket, may have been soured by the liberty-taking follower, he and other New Yorkers have plenty to celebrate. The team is on the brink of its first playoff series victory in 10 years after a win over Cleveland Cavaliers gave the Knicks a 3-1 edge in the best-of-seven series.
Davidson has history at the Garden. At a Rangers hockey game in 2019, “The King of Staten Island Star” went viral for French-kissing Kate Beckinsale after his breakup with Ariana Grande.
HuffPost did not immediately hear back from Davidson’s team.
