Mystics guard Natasha Cloud will not stand for Twitter users who can't grasp that women play professional sports too.
In the aftermath of the first round of the NFL draft, the second professional sporting event since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that he was excited for sports to be back. When he realized his mistake, he tweeted out a correction, pointing out that the WNBA draft had occurred last week.
My apooigies to anyone who was offended. Was caught up in the moment of the NFL Draft and forgot about the WNBA Draft from last Friday night. Sorry.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 24, 2020
That's when a verified Twitter user took the opportunity to strike down whether the WNBA is a professional sport.
As one could expect, Cloud was having none of it.
To paraphrase the exchange (warning: NSFW), Harry, the verified user said one of the weird phenomenons is the determination to keep insisting the WNBA is a pro sport. Cloud responded and told Harry to come play her on the court or to stop talking.
As of this writing, he has yet to publically respond to the challenge of the Mystics star.
Others, who have nothing better to do than strike down the WNBA for no reason, took his tweet, the outcry and ran with it as Harry did above.
He wasn't the only one to feel Cloud's wrath.
Why I challenge you to come see us live. Sit next to all the nba players that come support us. The game doesn’t change. People’s bias do.— Natasha Cloud (@T_Cloud4) April 24, 2020
Cause he’s soft. Nowhere shape or form did he take away from the NFL draft.— Natasha Cloud (@T_Cloud4) April 24, 2020
For our growth as a league...viewership, acknowledgment, and mainly respect is huge. I get he’s an nfl guy. But you can’t tell me that he doesn’t watch espn. @WNBA pulled off it’s most successful draft...virtually...with no hiccups.— Natasha Cloud (@T_Cloud4) April 24, 2020
Fair warning to all: if there is anyone that legitimately believes the WNBA isn't a sport, expect to get a word and eventual lesson from Natasha Cloud.
