Caitlin Clark fires back at Pat McAfee’s ‘white b****’ comment

Caitlin Clark has informed Pat McAfee they are ‘all good’ and they’ll ‘move ahead’ after he controversially dubbed the WNBA star a ‘white b****’ during his broadcast on Monday.

McAfee made a groveling apologies following the insult, which occurred as he was delivering a peculiar defense of the Indiana Fever star in the wake of her violent treatment by Chennedy Carter.

The ESPN broadcaster claimed in a statement on Monday night that he’d called out to Clark to express apologies directly. He launched his broadcast on Tuesday by announcing that she had reacted.

McAfee said: ‘Obviously that’s a major f***up on my end. I sorry for it.

‘I did contact out to Caitlin Clark through the Fever, made an apology and then got a message back that she said it was all good. No blood. We move onward. And she appreciates us reaching out and apologizing.

Clark has dominated the headlines after being harshly fouled by Chennedy Carter on Saturday

‘So that obviously makes me feel a little bit better. But to the ones that got p***ed off yesterday and offended, I understand. I learned a lot.’

McAfee was harshly slammed on social media for the comment regarding Clark – who has dominated the news ever since Chennedy Carter’s hard foul against her on Saturday.

The WWE commentator stated how other rookies – like Angel Reese and Cameron Brink – have improved the profile of the WNBA but the league’s boom in popularity is completely down to Clark.

He brought out a bunch of data comparing the three rookies to support that point but, in doing so, dubbed Clark a ‘white b****’, which seemed entirely unnecessary.

After being hammered by accusations on social media on Monday, McAfee took to X later on to apologize. He posted: ‘I shouldn’t have used “white b****” as a term of Caitlin Clark.

‘No matter the context.. even if we’re talking about race being a reason for some of the stuff happening.. I have way too much respect for her and women to put that into the universe.

The TV host made a groveling apology to Clark, adding he has ‘far too much respect for her’

‘My intentions when saying it were complimentary just like the entire piece but, a lot of others are complaining that it absolutely wasn’t at all. That’s 100% on me and for that I apologize… I have emailed an apology to Caitlin as well. Everything else I said… still alllllll facts.’

Clark was knocked to the ground by Carter at the conclusion of the third quarter of the Fever’s triumph over the Chicago Sky on Saturday and it has prompted a controversy regarding the treatment of Clark since she got pro.

Clark has continually been the focus of abusive behavior from opponents during her first season amid reports of jealously from other players at her dramatic impact on women’s basketball.

Carter said on Monday night she has ‘no remorse’ about her behavior as she addressed the event directly for the first time.

The 25-year-old appeared to say ‘you b***h’ at the former Iowa star before knocking her to the ground. The Chicago player then refused to answer questions about Clark immediately after Saturday’s loss to the Indiana Fever.

But following practice on Monday, she said: ‘I don’t have any regrets with anything. I’m going to compete and play 100 per cent hard – no matter who it is or who we’re playing.’

Carter stated she acted in the ‘heat of the moment’ and was simply retaliating.

Footage appears to show Clark grabbing the guard with her elbow moments before she was brought to the ground.

‘I guess I got hit in the head the play before and it was just one of those things that happened in the heat of the moment. I don’t know Caitlin. I don’t know her from anyone but at the end of the day this is hoops, it is competitive,’ she remarked.

‘This is basketball, if you’re playing someone like me, I define myself as a dawg. So if you’re going to throw a punch, I’m going to compete with you.

Carter added: ‘When we’re inside those four lines, it’s smoke. After it’s all love… we didn’t hit her like she was out on the streets. It’s just basketball.’

The Chicago player addressed the situation directly for the first time after practice on Monday

The 25-year-old, who had the backing of Whoopi Goldberg on Monday, was questioned if she now understood that her conduct had exceeded a boundary.

Even Chicago Sky head coach Teresa Weatherspoon publicly denounced the play, stating it was ‘not suitable’.

‘She and I have discussed what happened and that it was not appropriate, nor is it what we do or who we are,’ Weatherspoon added.

But Carter insisted:  ‘There’s no line. I’m competing. I’m going to compete… if you’re going to throw punches first, I’m going to compete. It’s all love. It’s basketball.

‘This happens in the NBA. Actually, I’m focusing on New York (Liberty) now, I’m not really focused on that play anymore. It happened… it’s over with.’
