Chicago Sky WNBA Team’s ‘Harassment’ Claims Under Scrutiny as New Video Emerges

Published on

Some WNBA players and a few wacky media figures are trying to counter the media frenzy around Indiana Fever star Caitlin Clifton. They have even used abusive language in an attempt to get their “points across”.

Angel Reese and Chennedy Reese of the Chicago Sky are among them. Carter, dubbed the anti-Caitlin Clark by her college teammates, was in the hot seat for a foul committed Saturday against Clark. She roughly shoulder-checked Clark with a non-ball action and caused Clark to drop to the ground. Reese clapped and hugged Carter at the end of the quarter.

It is strange that Carter was only penalized for a “away from ball” foul during the match. She refused to answer any questions during the post-game press conference. Two days later, however, the WNBA ruled it a flagrant-1 foul. The Sky’s coach issued a non apology for Carter’s behavior, while Carter continued to insist that she is just a passionately emotive player and shouldn’t have her character defined by one incident.

Sky players have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure at the “harassment,” they claim, that Kennedy received from a man with a camera who asked questions about Caitlin, and engaged in media-like behavior, when Kennedy stepped off the bus to play in Washington DC.

A man confronted Chicago Sky players outside their Washington, D.C. hotel on Wednesday, a day before the Mystics game. This incident occurred just four days after Chennedy Clark, a rookie Indiana Fever player, was fouled hard by Carter.

Sky general manager Jeff Pagliocca said to the Chicago Sun-Times the man had approached the team holding a camera, and was specifically looking for Carter. Sky security de-escalated the situation instantly and escorted Carter away. The team decided not to involve the police.

Reese is one of several players that called the alleged actions and words of the man “NASTY WORK” and said it “needs TO STOP”.

A video of the incident has been released. It’s a partial clip, but it gives us an idea as to what occurred:

The video appears to contradict Isabelle Harrison’s story, in which she claimed that they “couldn’t even step out of the bus !!!” Security intervened.

Michaela Onyenwere claimed, without any evidence, that the video had been edited to remove the worst parts of a man’s behaviour:

The video, it is clear, has thrown into doubt the official team story about what happened. Some on social media have pushed back against this “harassment narrative”:

Is this man’s behavior acceptable? I report, you decide.
