Caitlin Clark will go down as one of the best women’s college basketball players of all time. She might also be credited with taking women’s basketball to another stratosphere based on how the public spends money and tunes in to watch her play.

With so much power also comes a ton of criticism and just overall hate directed toward Caitlin Clark.

Religious leader Talbert W. Swan II is now the latest person to attack Caitlin Clark and her growing fan base.

Swan recently went viral after he mocked the Iowa Hawkeyes superstar for losing back-to-back national title games to the LSU Tigers and the South Carolina Gamecocks. It was just a few days ago when he posted a picture of three male referees who stated they were giving Caitlin Clark preferential treatment during games.

He also called out fans who were painting LSU Tigers superstar Angel Reese as the villain of college basketball while disrespecting Clark and intentionally spelling her name wrong.

“No the media made her a ‘villain.’ When Kaitlyn Clark taunted her opponents was she considered a villain or was she considered spirited and competitive? #AngelReese became emotional when talking about being attacked, sexualized, and receiving death threats,” Swan tweeted. “Don’t join white supremacists in blaming Angel for white racists vilifying and dehumanizing her.”

Swan also turned his attention to the media for covering Clark so much but not so much South Carolina who made history by going the entire season undefeated with a 38-0 record.

“Only in America can a predominantly Black women’s basketball team, coached by a Black woman, go 109–3 in three years, have a 38–0 season, and win the national title and the main story be about a white player on the losing team,” he wrote on X.

Once Caitlin Clark lost again in the big game, he then called out her fan base by referring to them as the “Mayo Posse.”

Social media had enough of his antics and began blasting him for his behavior:

Caitlin Clark has handled all the negative talk about her with grace and has yet to fire back at anyone. She has bigger fish to fry as she gets set to start her new era as the face of the Indiana Fever in the WNBA.

The Fever hold the number one draft pick and are widely expected to take her in a few days. The team has already been picked up for several national games, according to the LA Times.

Despite the unwarranted backlash she receives from some fans and even current or former WNBA players, Clark could wind up being the best thing to ever happen to women’s sports if her talent translates to the pro game.
