During today's episode of the "Pat McAfee Show," McAfee went on a rant about how WNBA star Caitlin Clark has been treated during her rookie year, to where he then made a controversial comment:

As heard, McAfee referred to Clark as a "white b*tch," and though he was defending Clark, this was certainly the wrong choice of words.
After this clip went viral, many took to Twitter to share their thoughts and reactions:
Following the backlash he received, McAfee released a statement, saying:
"I shouldn't have used «white bitch» as a descriptor of Caitlin Clark. No matter the context.. even if we're talking about race being a reason for some of the stuff happening.. I have way too much respect for her and women to put that into the universe.

My intentions when saying it were complimentary just like the entire segment but, a lot of folks are saying that it certainly wasn't at all. That's 100% on me and for that I apologize I have sent an apology to Caitlin as well.

Everything else I said still alllllll facts. #Journalism #WNBAProgrum #SheIsTheOne"

Clark has certainly been getting attacked by her fellow opponents on the court, and McAfee was trying to stick up for her. However, as someone with the a huge platform like his, he needs to do a better job with what he says on live TV and how he speaks about women.
