Angel Reese, star of the NCAA women’s basketball champions Louisiana State University, declined first lady Jill Biden’s White House invitation.

The drama began after Jill Biden invited LSU and the runner-ups, Iowa, to the White House for a ceremony.

The outspoken 20-year-old believes Biden invited both teams because Reese taunted Iowa star Caitlin Clark during the championship game on Sunday.

Reese imitated WWE legend John Cena’s “You can’t see me” hand gesture towards Clark, who previously made the same gesture to a Louisville player during an Elite Eight game.

Trash-talking is a tradition in the world of competitive sports. However, Iowa fans were offended by Reese’s gesture toward NCAA women’s basketball’s biggest star.

After LSU’s blowout win over Iowa, Reese defended herself saying she didn’t appreciate Clark’s “disrespect” in Iowa’s win over South Carolina.

Reese also said she was called a “racist”, while Clark was praised for doing the same thing. Reese claimed she was criticized because she didn’t “fit the narrative.”

Meanwhile, Jill Biden added fuel to the fire by inviting both LSU and the losing team, Iowa, to the White House — an unprecedented invitation that triggered accusations of “racism” and “white privilege.”

“I know we’ll have the champions come to the White House, we always do,” Jill Biden said in Denver on Monday via ESPN. “So, we hope LSU will come. But, you know, I’m going to tell Joe I think Iowa should come, too, because they played such a good game.”

Reese tweeted an ESPN article quoting Biden’s words and a photo of her at the championship game. Reese called Biden’s invitation to both teams “A JOKE,” with three laughing emojis preceding her words.

Jill Biden, 71, backtracked on Tuesday via a spokesperson who said she misspoke.

“Her comments in Colorado were intended to applaud the historic game and all women athletes,” press secretary Vanessa Valdivia tweeted on Tuesday. “She looks forward to celebrating the LSU Tigers on their championship win at the White House.”

However, Reese says she won’t be there to celebrate with the first lady and President Biden.

“I just know if the roles were reversed there wouldn’t be the same,” said Reese in a podcast interview. “If we were to lose, we would not get invited to the White House.”

Reese invited herself to one of former President Barack Obama’s palatial mansions instead.

“We’ll go to the Obamas,” she said.
