Black WNBA opponent mugs Caitlin Clark on court, refuses any questions about her actions

For a woman who has brought relevance to the WNBA, Caitlin Clark has not only been given no respect from her fellow players but is now being assaulted on the court.

In an incident that underscores the jealousy and racial animus that the former college basketball superstar has been forced to suffer, Clark was mugged on the court during a game on Saturday, with her assailant refusing to answer questions after the game about the thuggish act.

During the third quarter of the contest between Clark’s Indiana Fever and the Chicago Sky, she was on the receiving end of a vicious cheap shot from Sky guard Chennedy Carter, who targeted her with a hard shoulder that knocked Clark to the ground, a play that should have been a flagrant foul.

“B*tch!” Carter appeared to yell at Clark before hitting her, making it clear that the hard hit wasn’t a part of the game but was instead personal, which was confirmed when rookie Sky Angel Reese – Clark’s college rival – was seen cheering the unnecessary roughness.

After the game was stopped, the referees hit Carter with an ordinary foul, sending Clark to the free-throw line. The former Iowa Hawkeye wunderkind and her team had the last laugh though, taking the game 71-70 in front of the hometown crowd at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Carter’s bad attitude was also on display at the postgame press conference when she told a reporter, “I ain’t answering no Caitlin Clark questions.”

“That’s just not a basketball play but I’ve got to play through it, that’s what basketball is about at this level,” Clark said after the game, taking the high road.

“There’s a difference between tough defense and unnecessary— targeting actions! It needs to stop! The league needs to ‘ cleanup’ the crap! That’s NOT who this league is!!” Fever general manager Lin Dunn wrote on X.

“This is unacceptable,” Fever coach Christie Sides said in an X post. “When will the consistent complaints be heard?!? Something has to be done!”

“I’m trying not to get fined,” Sides told reporters after the game. “We’re just gonna keep sending these possessions to the league and these plays, and hopefully they’ll start taking a better look at some of the things that we see happening or we think is happening.”

Carter, a reserve player, was so proud of herself and the attention that she later liked posts on X that praised her thuggish actions and urged her to do it again.

The league has been more well-known for a tattooed, America-hating, black lesbian pothead who was arrested for drug position in Russia than anything on the hardwood, and in a sane world, Clark would be given superstar treatment for the public interest that she’s brought to the WNBA.

But post-Obama America is far from sane.
