The Los Angeles Lakers organization are investigating a report of sexual harassment against star guard Nick Young and starting guard Jordan Clarkson.
According to ESPN, Alexis Jones, a sexual abuse and harassment "activist", accused the guards of making “vulgar, sexual gestures” toward her 68-year-old mother.
UPDATE: Jones took photos of Young and Clarkson and posted the images to her Instagram page. Her IG followers identified two of the Jeep's occupants as Lakers players Young and Clarkson.
The Lakers coach reached out to Jones with an apology on Monday. He offered to have her stop by the Staples Center to educate the young black players on sexual harassment.
Jones told ESPN that Young, 30, and Clarkson, 23, pulled their Jeep beside her compact car and made "vulgar, sexual gestures" toward her mother on Sunday.
"She was super rattled. That's the truth. It scared her," Jones said, via ESPN. "We were in a small car, and they were in a big Jeep, and it was a bunch of big dudes. They're leaning out of the car and making vulgar, sexual gestures. My mom was really shocked. That immediately turned into sobbing."
Jones said 2 other men were in the Jeep besides Young and Clarkson. She said she recognized the Lakers guards from photos online.
Jones added, "The irony is I created a program called 'ProtectHer' out of the urgency to address sexual abuse in athletics, and I was on phone calls with the NBA as of Friday talking with them about integrating this message and this program into the NBA."
For his part, Young is denying the accusation.
A Lakers spokesman told ESPN on Monday that the team is taking the accusations "very seriously."
