Analyst Says Caitlin Clark Is Hated by WNBA Players Because She Isn’t a ‘Black Lesbian’

Caitlin Clark has not exactly been welcomed into the WNBA with open arms since stealing the national spotlight during a historic run in the NCAA tournament during her senior campaign at the University of Iowa.

Conventional wisdom would tell us that Clark’s place in women’s professional basketball would be celebrated by her peers in a league essentially no one watched until just this past month.

“Caitlin Clark is white and straight in a league that is primarily minority and lesbian,” Travis said on Fox Sports Radio Tuesday. “I told you this was going to be an issue, and now you got everybody acknowledging it all over the place.”

Travis added, “The average WNBA player does not like Caitlin Clark because she is white, because she is straight, and because now she is rich and getting a lot of attention. There is a great deal of resentment about that.”
