Bay Area rapper E-40 was ejected from Game 1 of the 2023 NBA Playoffs first-round matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Kings in Sacramento on Monday night allegedly due to racial bias. 

The incident occurred in the fourth quarter of the game when E-40 was sitting courtside with other celebrities.

E-40, whose real name is Earl Stevens, is a well-known rapper and producer from Vallejo, California. He has been a vocal supporter of the Warriors for many years and is often seen at their games. 

According to witnesses, E-40 became upset during the game and began to argue with a referee. The situation escalated quickly, and security was eventually called to escort him out of the arena. 

After the game, E-40 claimed that he was ejected because of his race.

"I was racially profiled and asked to leave the game for no reason. I have never been disrespected like this at a game in my life. This is outrageous and I demand an apology from the Warriors organization."

The Warriors or Kings have not yet responded to E-40's claims, and it is unclear whether they will take any action in response to the incident. 

However, the incident highlights the ongoing issue of racial bias in professional sports and the need for increased awareness and sensitivity among fans and officials alike.

While it is important to hold fans accountable for their behavior, it is equally important to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and respectfully regardless of their race, gender, or any other characteristic. 

The NBA and other professional sports organizations must continue to work toward creating a more inclusive and equitable environment for all fans and players.
