LSU's Angel Reese Taunts Back Iowa's Caitlin Clark In NCAA Win

LSU’s Angel Reese Defends Taunting Back Iowa’s Caitlin Clark In NCAA Title Win, Garners Support

LSU basketball star Angel Reese is defending her taunting of Iowa’s Caitlin Clark during the NCAA title game on Sunday, and called out the hypocrites who criticized her for doing the same taunt Clark had done in games prior.

The Tigers forward received widespread backlash for using WWE superstar John Cena’s famous “You Can’t See Me” gesture during LSU’s 103-85 blowout victory at the American Airlines Center.

Iowa’s Clark had used the same hand gesture to taunt players in both the Elite Eight and Final Four.

But while Clark was praised for the act, Reese was criticized for poor sportsmanship. She went on to say that critics have characterized her as “too good… too ghetto” for the taunt, “but when other people do it, ya’ll don’t say nothing.”

“And, that’s what I did it for tonight. It was bigger than me tonight. Twitter is gonna go on a rage every time. And, I’m happy. I feel like I’ve helped grow women’s basketball this year.”

Reese did have her supporters, though, including the likes of LeBron James and Shaquille O’Neal, who defended Reese while going at Keith Olbermann, who had called her a “f***ing idiot.”

“Shut your dumb a** up leave angel reese alone.”

LeBron also shared Ryan Clark’s message on Twitter, saying:

“If you praised Caitlin Clark as competitive, fiery, and passionate for doing the ‘You can’t see me’ celebration and are criticizing Angel Reese for the same we already know!!”
