It’s been 24 difficult hours for Nia Long. After the actor learned that her fiancé, Ime Udoka, had been suspended as head coach of the Boston Celtics for the 2022-2023 season, she also found out why: Udoka is reportedly having an affair with a staffer. On Friday, Long was ready to speak out.

“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization and my family for disappointing,” Udoka told ESPN reporter Malika Andrews in a statement. “I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult position and I accept the team’s decision.”

Udoka, who led the Celtics to the NBA Finals during his first season as head coach, certainly has his supporters. But Long has amassed a legion of loyal fans for generations. From classic comedies like “Friday” to admirable charity work, she’s widely loved – including on Twitter.

The exuberance of Bowman’s tweet caused some ridicule, but the lawmaker wasn’t alone in showing support for the cherished actor:
