- Caitlin Clark, the basketball standout for Iowa Hawkeyes, announces her relationship with former Hawkeye, Connor McCaffery, sparking reactions.
- Commentator Jason Whitlock expresses his approval and support for Clark, jokingly declaring himself a fan.
- “Fearless” contributor T.J. Moe also praises Clark, noting her unique flair on the court and off it.
While the sports world has been privy to many female athletes revealing their homosexuality, a recent revelation went against the grain.
Iowa Hawkeyes basketball sensation, Caitlin Clark, took to Instagram with an announcement of her own, albeit a traditional one.
With a heartfelt post featuring a photo alongside her probable boyfriend and former Hawkeye, Connor McCaffery, she unveiled their relationship to the world.
The picture showcased the pair looking relaxed in hoodies, basking in each other’s company on a boat.
The caption warmly read, “Best end to summer.” In response to the post, McCaffery playfully chimed in, “U CUTE,” accompanied by heart and fingers crossed emojis.
Jason Whitlock, an outspoken commentator, couldn’t hide his elation.
He remarked, “Caitlin Clark plays for the right team, plays for the heterosexual team, and I’m not surprised. I think some people are acting like they’re surprised.”
Displaying his unabashed fandom, Whitlock added, “I will be simping for Caitlin Clark. I don’t care who doesn’t like it.”
T.J. Moe, a contributor to “Fearless”, echoed Whitlock’s sentiment, praising her prowess on the court.
“She’s the most exciting player,” he declared.
Taking a deeper dive, Moe noted, “I was around a lot of the female basketball players. It’s very easy to see which ones are gay, which ones aren’t. I would’ve been stunned if she was gay. You can tell by the way she walks.”
Whitlock then called out the media’s seemingly biased treatment.
Pointing to a past instance involving Angel Reese taunting Clark, he observed, “If Caitlin Clark was on the Megan Rapinoe team, Angel Reese would have gotten annihilated for taunting her.”
