Hey, Kim Kardashian. Joel Embiid just wanted to drop a tweet and let you know that anytime you’re feeling lonely, his inbox is wide open.

Joel Embiid's pursuit of Rihanna is going much better than when he was chasing Kim Kardashian.
Like when he was going after Kardashian, he decided to change his Twitter avatar to reflect his current celebrity crush.
The Philadelphia 76ers rookie even has a new follower on Twitter:
If that wasn't good enough, he even claims that he had dinner with the singer:
Sorry y’all.She’s the one taking the pic. My arms stents long enough for a selfie. Alright I’m out for a couple weeks #Johanna— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 25, 2014

According to his breaking news report, Embiid has moved on from Kim Kardashian and now has his sights set on Rihanna, even asking her out to an Italian restaurant in Philadelphia.

When people don't respond to Joel Embiid, he takes it personally. In fact, he even considers blocking them.
Ok so @kimkardashian hasn’t DM’d yet...... Should she be blocked too? I’m ready to block her though— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 22, 2014
He wasn't done.

Joel Embiid has a new Twitter avatar:
He may like his new avatar, but he doesn't believe that everyone will be a fan of it.
I'll tell y'all this though>>> Mom is not gonna be happy with my profile pic too #iloveher— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 18, 2014
That tweet references one that he sent out on Thursday night:
This has to stop. Mom is questioning me if I really wanna date 40 or 50 years old women. IT WAS A JOKE. I'm focused on rehab and basketball.— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 17, 2014
Man, Embiid may be the best follow on Twitter.
The Philadelphia 76ers rookie attempted to put some Twitter moves on the model/actress Wednesday, asking if Kardashian would like to hit him up on the down low for some private messaging:
Hey I want you to come slide in my DMs @KimKardashian— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 16, 2014
Unfortunately, this love story cannot come to pass. It was quickly brought to Embiid’s attention that Kardashian recently tied the knot with rapper Kanye West.
Oh I didn't know you were married sorry @KimKardashian just saw it from the fan's tweet... have a nice day— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 16, 2014
Chalk up another strong Twitter outing for Embiid, whose quiet public persona clashes violently with his ridiculous Twitter musings.
I wouldn’t call him a “keyboard warrior,” but clowning on the Internet is his favorite downtime activity. Some people read and watch TV—Embiid likes to slide all up in your news feed with the goofiness.
