Caitlin Clark Chennedy Carter Video

During a heated WNBA game on June 1, Chicago Sky’s Chennedy Carter knocked Indiana Fever’s Caitlin Clark to the ground, an incident that quickly went viral on social media. The video shows Carter allegedly using a derogatory term towards Clark just before the clash.

In the footage, the game announcer is heard questioning, “The question is will they call it unnecessary?” Many fans on social media felt the foul deserved a harsher penalty. However, as reported by Sports Illustrated, Carter received a common away-from-play foul instead of a flagrant one.

Another video clip captures Carter’s teammate, Angel Reese, celebrating the knockdown, adding to the controversy.

Carter took to X to defend herself, commenting on a fan’s post, “yeah this the play lol,” which featured an extended video of the incident. The fan described the act as “a little shove in the back…” aimed at Clark. Carter further fueled the debate by liking posts that mocked Clark.

The New York Post described Carter’s actions as a “blatant” knockdown, while Outkick called it a “cheap shot,” and Sports Illustrated referred to it as a “hard off-ball foul.”

The viral video clearly shows Carter elbowing or body-checking Clark with enough force to send her to the floor. Before the physical altercation, Carter appears to mouth words that many, including Barstool Sports, interpreted as “you [expletive],” or “you little [expletive].” Carter, however, denied saying anything offensive during a post-game press conference.

A longer version of the video reveals that Carter bumped into Clark after scoring.

In a closely contested game, the Indiana Fever edged out the Chicago Sky with a 71-70 victory, as noted by The New York Post.

In the aftermath, Carter was unwilling to discuss the incident during the post-game press conference, firmly stating, “I ain’t answering no Caitlin Clark questions.”

When pressed by a reporter on whether Clark had said anything to her, Carter replied, “I don’t know what she said.”

When asked what she had said to Clark, Carter insisted, “I didn’t say anything to her.”

The press conference concluded with a woman’s voice intervening, “That’s enough.”

Caitlin Clark later described Carter’s actions as “not a basketball play,” during an ESPN broadcast covered by The New York Post. “Yeah, that’s just not a basketball play. But you know, I’ve gotta play through it. That’s what basketball is about at this level. I thought we’ve been really physical; we’ve missed some bunnies around the rim, so hopefully, those fall in the fourth.”

The incident took place in the third quarter, according to Sports Illustrated.

The foul left Clark visibly shaken. She appealed to the referees for a stricter penalty for Carter, but her pleas were ignored, Sports Illustrated reported.

Many fans on social media sided with Clark, expressing that Carter deserved a more severe punishment.

One X user commented, “Chennedy Carter screamed ‘You Little [Expletive]’ at Caitlin Clark, then blatantly hip-checked her before the ball was even inbounded, and somehow that’s not a flagrant foul???”

Clark has previously voiced her concerns about the physicality in WNBA games, saying she feels “hammered” due to the intense play, which has sparked debates about the attention and marketing deals she has received since joining the league.

In February, the Chicago Sky announced in a press release that they had signed Chennedy Carter to a training camp contract. The release highlighted her impressive career, noting, “Carter was the fourth overall pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft by Atlanta. She was named to the WNBA All-Rookie Team after averaging 17.4 points and 3.4 assists in 16 games (all starts) for the Dream. She averaged 14.2 points the following year in Atlanta before being acquired by Los Angeles in 2022. In 51 career games, including 29 starts, Carter averaged 12.7 points and 2.7 assists.”
