The viral video shows that fitness influencer and model Cuban Link was standing right in front of Young when it happened.

She was sitting between her boyfriend, rapper 50 Cent, and actress Julianne Moore, and the spit appeared to land very close to them.

While it didn’t make its way to Trae Young himself, he tweeted to 50 Cent to check if he was ok.

Undisputed’s Shannon Sharpe makes hilarious 50 Cent comment

On Undisputed today, Shannon Sharpe, Skip Bayless and Chris Broussard discussed the Trae Young spitting incident.

While talking about the female in the viral video, Shannon apparently failed to realise it was 50 Cent’s girlfriend.

Sharpe said if he were the person next to her, he’d have confronted the perpetrator, at which point Chris Broussard let him know it was actually 50 Cent.

Shannon jokingly replied: “I might’ve been 35 Cent because I would’ve slapped the change out his mouth.”

People found the comment pretty hilarious.

The host certainly has a way with words – never change, Shannon.
