WNBA All-Star Liz Cambage will “never” let a man disrespect her.
The Aces center, in a series of Instagram stories, accused Connecticut Sun head coach Curt Miller of making a lewd comment about her weight.
Cambage said Miller told a referee, “C’mon, she’s 300 pounds,” while arguing a call in the Aces’ favor in the Sun’s eventual 72-65 win on Sunday night. Miller has since apologized, admitting he made an “offensive comment” about Cambage’s weight.
“So to the coach of Connecticut — I’m sorry, little sir man, I do not know your name. But the next time you try to call out a referee trying to get a call being like, ‘C’mon, she’s 300 pounds,’ I’m going to need you to get it right baby,” Cambage said before declaring her correct height and weight.
“I’m weighing 235 pounds and I’m very proud of being a big b—h, big body, big benz, baby,” the 6-foot-8 athlete said. “So don’t ever try to disrespect me or another woman in the league.”
WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
Cambage, 29, went on to note that she would’ve reacted during the Sun-Aces game if it weren’t for her having a job to do on the court.
“Anyway to that little man — whole little, tiny, like where is you? — stop trying to project your insecurities baby. Pick up the phone, call the psych, because you projecting some bulls–t right now. And next time you try to disrespect me, remember, I’m 235,” she said. “It might seem like 300 pounds to your little ass. I’m 235, baby.”
Miller issued an apology to Cambage and the Aces organization on Monday.
“I made an inappropriate and offensive comment in reference to Liz Cambage’s height and weight,” his statement read, according to ESPN. “I regret what I said in the heat of the moment and want to sincerely apologize to Liz and the entire Aces organization. I understand the gravity of my words and have learned from this.”
Cambage, who has yet to acknowledge Miller’s apology, finished the game with 10 points, seven rebounds and four blocks in 21 minutes.
Her latest social media call-out comes less than two weeks after her Twitter spat with Australian basketball alum Andrew Bogut.
