Draymond Green gave his opinion on the wide disparity in pay between male NBA and female WNBA players.

The Golden State Warriors power forward told reporters he's "really tired" of WNBA players complaining about the pay gap.

He said, female athletes, particularly WNBA players, are "doing themselves a disservice by just complaining."

When NBC reporter Kerith Burke noted that women are doing more to close the gap, Green said the women are just complaining, rather than taking steps to close the gap.

Green suggested WNBA players should up their game to bring fans through the door and increase revenue.

"Because the people that can change it, they're just going to continue to say, 'Well, the revenue isn't there. The revenue isn't there. So, if you don't bring in the revenue, we can't up your pay.' They're going keep using that," Green argued.

Despite his pessimism, Green is a staunch ally of women's sports and particularly the WNBA. He is pictured with Aerial Powers of the Washington Mystics in a photo dated September 24, 2019.

Green, pictured with his son Draymond Green Jr., said he is looking at the most effective way to help women get the marketing attention and compensation they've demanded.

The 54-year-old Leo shares 12-year-old daughter Nahla Aubry with her model ex Gabriel Aubry, and seven-year-old son Maceo with French actor Olivier Martinez. She is making sure they are well aware about harmful gender expectations.

In a digital Sundance Film Festival panel titled, Women Breaking Barriers: An Industry Shift, the single mom said:

"I have a seven-year-old son, and I have realized what my job is in raising him. If we want to have a future that's different, that is where it starts. You made me think of how many conversations I've had with him, say, since he's turned five years old, about the differences in boys and girls, and I see how he's taught to feel like he's superior, at five, than girls are."

Halle is raising her son to ignore the differences between the male and female sexes and to reject the masculine thought process.

"I've had to really break that down for him and give him a new perspective, and challenge those thoughts and ask him to identify where that comes from, and if he believes that or not and challenge what he's subconsciously getting from somewhere.

"I can tell that because we're having those conversations he is going to grow as a deep thinker on the subject. He's going to be determined not to just accept it. I keep challenging him all the time, like, 'Well, why is [pink] a 'girl color?’"

Moniece Slaughter says production companies treat Black reality show cast members like "slaves to the machine."

In an interview with The Jasmine Brand, Moniece, 33, said Black reality TV personalities routinely receive lower pay than their white counterparts.

She said Black reality stars are "not being managed by Kris Jenners" who tell them "We know your worth, we're gonna fight for your worth, and we're not gonna let you do anything that is below what you're worth."

Moniece also alleged that producers use a loophole to get out of paying cast members for working over filming schedules. Moniece accused some producers of being "two-faced" backstabbers who tell networks not to work with cast members who are insubordinate or difficult to work with (such as NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks).

In 2019 Moniece announced her departure from Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, saying her main focus was to be a good mom to her son Kamron (by former fiancé, Fizz).
