White Twitter Cries And Calls LSU Star Angel Reese “Classless” After She Does Same Taunt As Caitlin Clark
If it wasn’t “classless” when Caitlin Clark did it, don’t call it classless when Angel Reese does it. Let the women compete, it’s sports!! pic.twitter.com/lJpS1NId68

Women’s basketball has never been so popular. Typically, it’s the men’s side of March Madness that has everyone talking, but thanks in large part to breakout star Caitlin Clark, people can’t get enough of the women’s side of the tournament.
The Iowa Hawkeyes star led her team to the championship game on Sunday night, and everyone was rooting for her.
Despite her best efforts though, LSU played a strong game and took over in the fourth quarter to take home the championship title.
During the blowout in the fourth, LSU star Angel Reese followed Clark around for several seconds doing John Cena’s famous “You Can’t See Me” taunt. It’s the very same taunt Clark was seen doing in previous games during the Elite Eight round.
And while white Twitter LOVED it when Clark did it, they did not have the same reaction when Reese did it last night. The response to Reese’s taunt was disgusting. Several high-ranking (white) reporters called her names, including Dave Portnoy and Keith Olbermann.

They were just two of many white people crying about Reese’s taunt. The wording they used is suspect at best, and racist at worst. Hopefully some of them look at themselves in the mirror and really think about why they had such different reactions to the same taunt. The answer is there. It’s a hard thing to admit about yourself, but at least if you acknowledge it, you can work to change it.
In any event, Reese is not letting the haters get her down. She’s not apologizing. She is unbothered by the selective outrage.
All year, I was critiqued about who I was. The narrative — I don’t fit the narrative. I don’t fit into the box that y’all want me to be in. ‘I’m too hood. I’m too ghetto.’ Y’all told me that all year. But, when other people do it, y’all don’t say nothing. This win is for the girls that look like me. Be unapologetically you.
