Social Media Reacts After Pistons ‘Kiss-Cam’ Features Cheerleaders Allegedly Kissing

AUBURN HILLS (WWJ) – Social media is all a-twitter over an alleged lip lock between two Detroit Pistons’ female cheerleaders.

The cheerleaders were prompted on the ‘Kiss-Cam’ screen to pucker up. And from what folks who were at the game report … they kissed and then rolled around on The Palace floor pretending to make out for comedic effect.

The Kiss-Cam runs during some of the breaks during the Detroit Pistons games at The Palace of Auburn Hills, but usually the focus is on a man and a woman.

Local PR pro Jason Brown, who was at the game, posed the question: “innocent or inappropriate?” on his Facebook page. He got 78 comments running the gamut from “what’s the big deal” to outright outrage. Several reported the saucy fun garnered the “biggest cheer of the night,” others thought it was too racy for children present at the game.

One man thought it was all in jest, writing, “They had their hands on each other’s faces, and weren’t actually kissing. That said, if women kissing bothers you that much, I think you need to look in the mirror.”

Another person at the game said he spoke to one of the cheerleaders involved and no lips touched, “absolutely no lip contact was made. Just playing for funsies,” he said.

Pistons spokesman Kevin Grigg noted that everything that happens on Kiss Cam is spontaneous. “The intent is to provide entertainment in a fun, humorous manner,” he said.
