REVEALED: DiJonai Carrington showed up to Indiana Fever game just hours after calling out Caitlin Clark for silence in ‘culture war’

Connecticut Sun star DiJonai Carrington showed up to the Indiana Fever’s game against the Atlanta Dream on Thursday night, hours after she called out Caitlin Clark for her silence in a ‘culture war’. 

Clark has been at the forefront for the surge in popularity in women’s basketball, taking her star power from the college ranks to the WNBA in April as the league’s No 1 overall pick in its annual draft. 

With that attention has come some using her name being weaponized to spread racism and misogyny, something Clark pushed back on directly Thursday. 

Carrington had taken issue with Clark’s lack of a brash statement to disassociate herself from those things. Then, she showed up at Clark’s game hours after a posting a tweet calling her out. 

‘Dawg. How one can not be bothered by their name being used to justify racism, bigotry, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia & the intersectionalities of them all is nuts. We all see the sh*t. We all have a platform. We all have a voice & they all hold weight. Silence is a luxury,’ Carrington tweeted.

Clark’s rebuttal of people weaponizing her name also happened hours before tipoff of Fever-Dream. 

‘It’s disappointing,’ Clark said. ‘Everybody in our world deserves the same amount of respect. The women in our league deserve the same amount of respect. 

‘People should not be using my name for those agendas. It’s disappointing. It’s not acceptable,’ Clark continued. 

‘This league is the league I grew up admiring and wanting to be a part of. Some of the women in this league were my biggest idols and role models growing up and helped me in wanting to achieve this moment right here that I get to play in every single night,’ Clark added. 

Carrington was picture with her arm around Fever star and ex-girlfriend NaLyssa Smith. 

The pair started dating when they both were at Baylor and broke up sometime recently and unfollowed each other on Instagram. 

After an altercation in a Fever-Sun game between Carrington and Erica Wheeler, where Smith stood up for her ex-girlfriend and opponent, the duo appear to be back on better terms.
