NY Congressman Teased For EXTRA Supportive Tweet About Nia Long

NY Congressman Jamaal Bowman Teased Online For EXTRA Supportive Tweet About Nia Long

On Friday, a New York congressman positioned himself as a knight in shining Twitter armor for Nia Long! And it wasn’t long before users shared their critiques (and laughs) about the intense message of support.

This week the actress has been in countless headlines and social media talks leading up to the 2022-23 season suspension of head coach Ime Udoka. The Boston Celtics caught Ime having an improper, intimate relationship with a female staffer–a violation of their code of conduct.

Meanwhile, Nia and Ime have been in a relationship since 2010. They welcomed a son in 2011 and got engaged in 2015. On Friday, she thanked family, friends, and the community for their love and support.

Congressman Bowman Suggests A “Nia Long National Holiday” 

As the Ime news developed, folks on Twitter slammed the coach for fumbling thee Nia Long. Well, it looks like representative Jamaal Bowman was on the same beat. He took it upon himself to stand for Nia from his work account.

“Sending nothing but love to Nia Long. We’re not letting a man, who didn’t recognize the luxury her presence was, dim all her beauty and glory,” Congressman Bowman tweeted. “Matter of fact, we need a Nia Long national holiday.”

Congressman Insists Tweet Was Only “Love And Support” 

Well, the congressman wasn’t blind to the reactions and didn’t stay quiet for too long. About an hour after his initial, Bowman responded to the Twitter chatter. The married state representative dismissed any claims of shooting his shot.

“Hahaha, y’all hilarious. Y’all do know it’s okay for a man to show a woman love nad support without shooting his shot? That’s actually a thing,” Bowman tweeted.

No word yet on how serious he was about the national holiday, though!
