After Josh Duhamel calls for apology, Warriors clown Fergie's All-Star anthem rendition again

First the Golden State Warriors dunked all over the New York Knicks, outscoring them 47-16 in the fourth quarter en route to a 28-point win. Then they dunked all over pop star Fergie via social media.

Why Fergie?

It all stems from February's NBA All-Star Game, where the eight-time Grammy Award winner sang a stylized -- and much-criticized -- version of the national anthem. Warriors forward Draymond Green was seen laughing during the performance, and the GIF of his reaction quickly spread on social media.

Fergie issued a statement the next day in which she admitted her performance " didn't strike the intended tone."

That moment was merely an afterthought to the Warriors' third championship season in four years, until Thursday, when actor Josh Duhamel, Fergie's ex-husband, told FS1's Kristine Leahy that he believes Green owes Fergie an apology, saying, "I just thought that, if he would have been a real man, he would have at least called her and said, 'Listen, I'm sorry that I caused all this.'"

Based on the reaction from the Warriors locker room Friday night, it would not seem that an apology is forthcoming. Instead, we have the #FergieRemixChallenge!

The video, posted by Warriors reserve forward Alfonzo McKinnie, shows the team listening to a viral remix of the Fergie anthem rendition that came out in the days following the All-Star Game. Green can be seen in the video dancing along with other Golden State players, including  Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and DeMarcus Cousins -- who was ejected from Friday's game without playing a single minute.

Duhamel would circle back later Friday night and accept the L - but Green let him know that the genie is out of the bottle on this one.
