A WNBA player sparked controversy on social media when she seemed to blame Black men for the league's low television ratings.

Layshia Clarendon is a male-identified transgender and non-binary who previously underwent a double mastectomy to relieve the anxiety of Gender Dysphoria.

The 29-year-old New York Liberty shooting guard sparked controversy when she compared the Black male thought process to white supremacy in a tweet on Saturday.

Clarendon tweeted:

"The amount of black men who drag our league and blame women for their problems while not making the connection to how that's exactly what white people do to you regarding your race just BLOWS MY MIND. That's the double whammy of being black AND a woman."

Needless to say, Clarendon's followers (mostly male) went IN on her Twitter timeline:

One Twitter user wrote: "...you can't deny there are a lot of men out there trashing the hell out of the league."

Another Black male wrote: "Blk men are some of the biggest supporter s of the WNBA. Everyday on this app y'all got our names in your mouth."

And a third tweeted:

"Ma'am....I mean sir...I mean whatever tf u wanna be called...u do know that black men are really the only supporters u have for your league right? But u literally just....u know what Nvm."

WNBA star Maya Moore has married the man she helped to free from prison.

The 31-year-old basketball star put her career on hold to help overturn Jonathan Irons' wrongful conviction. The couple exchanged vows as husband and wife, just weeks after Irons was released following a 23-year stint behind bars.

"We wanted to announce today that we are super excited to continue the work that we’ve been doing together, but doing it as a married couple...," she told Good Morning America on Wednesday.

"We got married a couple of months ago. We're excited to share this new chapter of life together."

Irons was originally sentenced to 50 years behind bars in 1998 after he was convicted of breaking into a Missouri home and shooting a homeowner. In March, a judge ruled prosecutors suppressed fingerprint evidence that would have strengthened his defense, and he was released from prison on July 1.
