According to New York Post, WNBA star Liz Cambage, who has been actively involved in fighting for justice and equality for black lives, is accused of directing a racial slur toward members of the Nigerian national team during a scrimmage before last year’s Tokyo Olympics.
“That’s what I recall, the term monkeys, yes. And go back to where you came from,” a Nigerian player told the Telegraph. “She definitely did use monkeys or monkey.”
“I was on the court. She definitely said go back to your Third World country,” another anonymous player added. “I didn’t hear it, but [teammates] confirmed she called us monkeys.”
