WNBA new­com­er Riley Gaines finds her­self embroiled in a social media firestorm after crit­i­ciz­ing Chica­go Sky’s Angel Reese for a since-delet­ed tweet per­ceived as a jab at Indi­ana Fever’s Caitlin Clark.

Gaines, a for­mer col­le­giate swim­mer known for her activism in wom­en’s sports, took to her own plat­form to con­demn Reese’s post, which many inter­pret­ed as an attempt to under­mine Clark, the high­ly-tout­ed first over­all pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft.

Gaines’ crit­i­cism extend­ed beyond Reese, tar­get­ing The View co-host Sun­ny Hostin for her recent com­ments sug­gest­ing Clark’s suc­cess stems from “white priv­i­lege.” Gaines con­clud­ed her remarks with a sar­cas­tic jab at Hostin, ref­er­enc­ing her con­tro­ver­sial viewpoint.

This heat­ed exchange comes as the WNBA sea­son tips off, with both Clark and Reese aim­ing to estab­lish them­selves dur­ing their rook­ie campaigns.
