You’ll be sick when you see what one reporter said to Caitlin Clark

Women’s basketball star Caitlin Clark is making headlines for everything.

But this time Clark wanted nothing to do with this awful story.

And you’ll be sick when you see what one reporter said to Caitlin Clark.

Sports columnist under fire for cringe exchange with Caitlin Clark 

Caitlin Clark is the all-time leading scorer – for both men and women – in college basketball.

Clark and her Iowa Hawkeyes run to the national title game drew record TV ratings, culminating with more than 18,000,000 viewers tuning in to the championship game.

The Indiana Fever made Clark the number one pick in the WNBA draft.

And Clark’s arrival into the pro game is expected to explode the popularity of women’s basketball.

But Clark’s pro career got off to an awkward start with interaction between her and Indianapolis Star columnist, Gregg Doyel.

It all began when Doyel flashed Clark’s signature heart sign she makes with her hands at her during her introductory press conference with the Fever.

“Real quick, let me do this,” Doyel said to Clark followed by Doyel making the heart gesture.

“You like that?” Clark responded.

“I like that you’re here. I like that you’re here,” Doyel answered.

“I do that at my family after every game, so,” Clark explained.

“OK, well start doing that to me and we’ll get along just fine,” Doyel shot back.

The uncomfortable look on Clark’s face after this back and forth said it all.

Doyel apologizes

Doyel became a national villain with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy ripping Doyel as a “sexist pervert.”

“@IndyStarSports do something about this pervert,” Portnoy posted on X. “To clarify I meant to call Gregg Doyle [sic] a sexist pervert. Which he is based on his nauseating actions today.”

Doyel offered his own apology in social media.

“Today in my uniquely oafish way, while welcoming @CaitlinClark22 to Indy, I formed my hands into her signature,” Doyel wrote. “My comment afterward was clumsy and awkward. I sincerely apologize. Please know my heart (literally and figuratively) was well-intentioned. I will do better.”

In his column, Doyel then began an embarrassing groveling session.

“I’m devastated to realize I’m part of the problem. I screwed up Wednesday during my first interaction with No. 1 overall draft pick Caitlin Clark of the Indiana Fever,” Doyel wrote.

Doyel explained that he was just trying to treat Clark like he would a male athlete but that “a woman I deeply respect told me, ‘But Caitlin Clark is a young woman, and you don’t talk to a young woman the same as you would a young man.’”

Doyel then went into self-flagellation expressing his disbelief that a woke liberal like himself – who holds all the right social opinions – could end up on the wrong side of feminists.

“After going through denial, and then anger – I’m on the wrong side of this? Me??? – I now realize what I said and how I said it was wrong, wrong, wrong. I mean it was just wrong. Caitlin Clark, I’m so sorry,” Doyel concluded.
