Twitter users expressed outrage at WNBA star Liz Cambage for calling Connecticut Sun head coach Curt Miller a "little white one".

Cambage, 29, used the slur in response to Miller wight-shaming her during a game on Sunday.

Miller was fined $10,000 by the WNBA for criticizing Cambage's weight during the Suns' 72-65 win over the Aces at Michelob ULTRA Arena.

Cambage is perfectly proportioned for her height, but she took offense to the comment anyway.

The Australian bauty posted a video to Twitter in which she said Miller was arguing a call and told a ref, "Come on, she's 300 pounds."

"One thing about me is that I will never let a man disrespect me - especially a little white one," Cambage said in the video. "For a coach on another team to be yelling like protected abuse, 'cause we can't do nothing back, it's just crazy to me."

She went on to say she was 6-foot-8 and weighed 235 pounds.

"So to the coach of Connecticut — I'm sorry, little sir man, I do not know your name. But the next time you try to call out a referee trying to get a call being like, 'come on, she's 300 pounds,’ I'm going to need you to get it right baby, 'cause I'm 6-8... I'm weighing 235 pounds and I'm very proud of being a big b----, big body, big Benz, baby."

But Twitter criticized dragged Cambage for bringing Miller's skin color into the discussion.

"I like Liz Cambage, but she clapped back by calling him a "little white boy"?? That's even ground for suspension if we're playing this game," said Rob Stukenborg on Twitter.

Another user slammed the New York Times for "conveniently" leaving Cambage's "racist" comment out of its report about the controversy. The paper cut off Cambage's quote before she mentioned the slur.

Richard Bradley tweeted: "I just don't get how it's wrong for a coach to say a player weighs 300 pounds but it's acceptable for a player to refer to that coach as 'a little white one.'"

Twitter user Frankie, wrote: "So Liz Cambage can get mad at a man for bringing up her size in the heat of a game, but it's okay for her to say that she will 'never let a little white man' disrespect her? What she said is worse lmaooo."

The WNBA has fined Connecticut Head Coach and General Manager Curt Miller for weight-shaming Las Vegas Aces star Liz Cabbage.

Miller was fined $10,000 for criticizing Cambage's weight during the Suns' 72-65 win over the Aces at Michelob ULTRA Arena on Sunday.

Cambage, 29, posted a video to Twitter in which she said Miller was arguing a call during the game when he mentioned her imposing size by telling a ref, "Come on, she's 300 pounds."

"One thing about me is that I will never let a man disrespect me - especially a little white one," Cambage said in the video. "For a coach on another team to be yelling like protected abuse, 'cause we can't do nothing back, it's just crazy to me."

She continued:

"So to the coach of Connecticut — I'm sorry, little sir man, I do not know your name. But the next time you try to call out a referee trying to get a call being like, 'come on, she's 300 pounds,’ I'm going to need you to get it right baby, 'cause I'm 6-8... I'm weighing 235 pounds and I'm very proud of being a big b----, big body, big Benz, baby. So don't ever try to disrespect me or another woman in the league."

Miller issued a statement on Monday, apologizing to Cambage and acknowledging that his comment was inappropriate.

"I made an inappropriate and offensive comment in reference to Liz Cambage's height and weight," he said. "I regret what I said in the heat of the moment and want to sincerely apologize to Liz and the entire Aces organization. I understand the gravity of my words and have learned from this.

"As a leader, words matter. It was inappropriate. In a league where we empower women, and I've spent 31 years empowering women, just not acceptable."

Radio host Charlamagne has apologized to former NBA player Kwame Brown for slandering his family.

Brown called out The Breakfast Club host for his past rapey behavior involving young girls.

Brown roasted Charlamagne in a YouTube video after Charlamagne told listeners to "leave Kwame Brown alone" because of a violent incident involving Brown's father who was accused of killing his girlfriend with an axe.

He apologized to Brown and his family for "unintentionally triggering trauma."

"I want to apologize to Kwame Brown and Kwame Brown's family. I want to apologize to his father Bill Brown and the family of Bill Brown," he said after giving himself "Donkey Of The Day."

"Last week on the radio, in my attempt to defend a Charleston, South Carolina brother like myself, I revealed too much information about that man's family," he said.

"Some things just don't need to be said on the radio and they definitely don't need to be said by me. When I look back on the way I communicated that, I communicated it all wrong. And I unintentionally triggered trauma in a lot of folks I grew up with who I genuinely love. I'm sure I caused a lot of pain for not only Kwame Brown, but his family, especially his family in my hometown of Moncks Corner, South Carolina. You know how I know? Because I spoke to them."

Brown had previously called Charlamagne a "rapist" and "rape case guy that actually pled guilty and got away with it."

Charlamagne reportedly had his attorney send a cease-and-desist to Brown.

Justin Timberlake apologized to Janet Jackson and Britney Spears, acknowledging he "failed" both women in the past.

Fans took to social media to slam Justin for using Britney and Janet to reach the top.

The "SexyBack" singer faced backlash following the recent premiere of Hulu documentary "Framing Britney Spears."

The documentary chronicled Britney's rise to pop superstardom, her spectacular 2008 meltdown, and her ongoing conservatorship battle with her father.

The film briefly explored how Justin capitalized on his 2002 break-up with Britney by boasting about taking the pop superstar's virginity and suggesting she cheated on him with his hit song "Cry Me A River", which featured a Britney lookalike in the music video.

Two years later, Justin hit headlines again for his role in Janet Jackson's Super Bowl Halftime Show debacle, as he ripped off part of her corset and exposed her breast.

Despite reports that Justin and Janet practiced the planned "wardrobe malfunction” in the days leading up to the halftime show, Timberlake distanced himself from Janet -- leaving her to take all the heat, which harmed her career.

Now, the father-of-two has claims he has seen the error of his ways and he spoke out about his white male privilege in a candid Instagram post on Friday.

In the post, he writes, "I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right.

"I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.

"I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed."

"I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from...," he adds, before blaming the culture of the entertainment industry for enabling such behavior.

"The industry is flawed. It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It's designed this way," Timberlake continues.

"As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn't recognize it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again."

He concludes: "I have not been perfect in navigating all of this throughout my career. I know this apology is a first step and doesn't absolve the past. I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports.

"I care deeply about the wellbeing of the people I love and have loved. I can do better and I will do better."

Britney and Janet have yet to respond to the apology.
