Hostin Blasts WNBA Star Caitlin Clark for Being ‘White’ and ‘Pretty’

If beauty is only skin deep, that explains the ugly heart of the staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host of ABC’s The View, Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners). During Wednesday’s show, she lashed out at WNBA star Caitlin Clark “because she’s white, because she’s attractive,” and because she’s not a lesbian.

Hostin, who sits on the board of advocates for the WNBA’s Players Association, seemed to resent that Clark was poised to bring a bunch of new fans and sponsorship opportunities to the league that WNBA star Brittney Griner couldn’t and chalked it up to her skin color because of it:

At all. And the WNBA started in 1996. First games played in 1997. It’s 2024, and we’re just really now talking about it and so if Caitlin Clark is the vehicle that will bring this sport that I have loved so much and so long to little 5-year-old girls playing in Harlem, I say yes, bravo. I have no problem with that.

[Applause]

With that being said, I do think that there is a thing called pretty privilege. There is a thing called white privilege. There is a thing called tall privilege. And we have to acknowledge that, and so part of it is about race because if you think about the Brittney Griners of the world, you know.

I don’t know Sunny, maybe people don’t like her because of her anti-American comments. Just a thought.

The chronically bitter View host doubled down and deduced that Clark was able to do all this because she was white, pretty, and straight. “But I do think that she is more relatable to more people because she’s white, because she’s attractive, and unfortunately, there still is that stigma against the LGBTQ+ community,” she declared.

Hostin suggested that one of the reasons people didn’t like the WNBA was because “70 percent of the WNBA is black,” which was a ridiculous claim because it’s a similar statistic for the NBA.

“And we have to do something about that stigma in this country. I think that people have a problem with basketball-playing women that are lesbians. Who cares?! They are great athletes!” she screeched.

SUNNY HOSTIN: You know I’ve been a basketball fan since I can remember. I played basketball with my dad in Harlem when I was 5 years old. So, I remember loving the game, and the game not necessarily loving women back. Right?

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: At all.

HOSTIN: At all. And the WNBA started in 1996. First games played in 1997. It’s 2024, and we’re just really now talking about it and so if Caitlin Clark is the vehicle that will bring this sport that I have loved so much and so long to little 5-year-old girls playing in Harlem, I say yes, bravo. I have no problem with that.

[Applause]

With that being said, I do think that there is a thing called pretty privilege. There is a thing called white privilege. There is a thing called tall privilege. And we have to acknowledge that, and so part of it is about race because if you think about the Brittney Griners of the world, you know. Why did she have to go to play in Russia?

GOLDBERG: Because they wouldn’t pay her!

HOSTIN: Because they wouldn’t pay her.

GOLDBERG: Because they wouldn’t pay. Not because she was black, but because they didn’t believe in the WNBA.

HOSTIN: Well this is part of my point. So now, Caitlin Clark is bringing this money, these sponsorships—

GOLDBERG: We hope.

HOSTIN: We hope, into the league and other players will benefit from it. But I do think that she is more relatable to more people because she’s white, because she’s attractive, and unfortunately, there still is that stigma against the LGBTQ+ community. 70 percent of the WNBA is black; a third of the players are in the LGBTQ+ community. And we have to do something about that stigma in this country. I think that people have a problem with basketball-playing women that are lesbians. Who cares?! They are great athletes!
