Liz Cambage will “never” let a man disrespect her.
The WNBA all-star and Aces center 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.
“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.
“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.”
The 29-year-old said she would’ve reacted on the court when she heard, but she had a job to do.
“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 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.”
