ESPN Host Pat McAfee Apologizes For Vulgar Praise Of WNBA Star Caitlin Clark


Pat McAfee, the host of ESPN, apologized on Monday for using the n-word during his offensive compliment of WNBA player Caitlin Clark.

McAfee refuted the idea that Clark’s rise and the play and personalities of fellow rookies like Angel Reese and Cameron Brink are the only reasons for the WNBA’s recent surge in popularity.

“What the WNBA currently has is what we like to describe as a cash cow. There is a superstar,” McAfee said on “The Pat McAfee Show.”

“I would like the media people that continue to say, ‘This rookie class, this rookie class, this rookie class.’ Nah, just call it for what it is — there’s one white b— for the Indiana team who is a superstar.”

McAfee quickly apologized on social media after praising the Indiana Fever guard in an outburst.

“I shouldn’t have used ‘white b—-‘ as a descriptor of Caitlin Clark,” McAfee wrote.

Regardless of the situation, McAfee stated that it was inappropriate for him to use such language to characterize a player he has “way too much respect for.”

“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,” he added. “That’s 100% on me, and for that, I apologize.”

Clark, the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer, was the No. 1 pick in the 2024 WNBA draft. Her offensive skill set, which included making shots from just inside half-court, mesmerized college basketball fans.

Following back-to-back national title games (which the Hawkeyes lost both times), Clark guided the team to an 18.7 million viewership in their most recent game against South Carolina. That was a significant amount more than the men’s national championship (14.8 million) between Purdue and UConn.

The WNBA’s Clark’s Indiana Fever has broken attendance and ticket sales records since joining the league.

She led all rookie players in scoring (17.6 points per game), field goals made (46), 3-pointers made (24), free throws made (42), assists (6.6 per game), and minutes played (33 per game), earning her the title of WNBA Rookie of the Month for May.
