On Monday, there was some controversy stirred up by Pat McAfee, the WWE RAW commentator and former Indianapolis Colts punter, who referred to WNBA star Caitlin Clark as a ‘white b*tch’.

This occurred during an episode of “The Pat McAfee Show,” in which McAfee discussed the rising popularity of the WBNA due to their impressive rookie class, which includes Clark, Cameron Brink, and Angel Reese.

Though McAfee sought to commend Clark, he interjected race into the conversation, commenting that the player being white was irrelevant. This point was underscored by the fact that WNBA stars Breanna Stewart, Sabrina Ionescu, and Kelsey Plum, who are also white, are doing extremely well currently. He expressed this by saying:

“The media keeps talking about ‘this rookie class’. Just call it as it is — there’s one white b*tch for the Indiana team who is a superstar.”

Later on, he added:
“People might just enjoy watching her because of her electrifying performance and what she stands for. But instead, we hear people saying we like her because of her race while the rest of the rookie class is achieving their own success.”

His derogatory term led to a heated discussion and McAfee later issued an apology, stating:
“I shouldn’t have used “white b*tch” to describe Caitlin Clark, regardless of the context. I have too much respect for her and women in general to put that out there. My intentions were meant to be complimentary, but many found it offensive. That’s 100% on me and I apologize for it…I have also personally apologized to Caitlin… Everything else I said is still accurate. #Journalism #WNBAProgrum #SheIsTheOne”

Interestingly, McAfee previously referred to Braun Strowman as “one big white son of a b*tch!” when the WWE wrestler came out to the ring during this week’s episode of WWE RAW.
