Liz Cambage Social Spat
Former NBA player Andrew Bogut and Liz Cambage haven’t exactly been the greatest of pals. Apparently this is no secret because there is ample evidence available on their social media platforms.
It all began when Liz attended a Black Lives Matter rally and Bogut tweeted,
Protesting against police brutality in Melbourne is like protesting for less jumbo jets to be on highways
A week later Andrew apologized for his prior tweet, stating that he “did some research,” and was “shocked at the number of police shootings” in Melbourne.
Cambage called his initial claim “a load of BS”.
Since then the two have had back and forth banters on social media.
The second matter that ignited the banters between the two was, when Cambage claimed the Australia promotional photos for the Olympics were ‘whitewashed.’
Her frustration was clear in her caption below the picture she posted on Instagram that read:
“If I’ve said it once
I’ve said it a million times
HOW AM I MEANT TO REPRESENT A COUNTRY
THAT DOESN’T EVEN REPRESENT ME”
Andrew had his say in this matter and disagreed with Liz’s claim, calling it “a slippery slope”. He went on to further say, “ Some of our most prominent people of color, that play for Australia, Patty Mills and Ben Simmons, they’re playing in the best league in the world right now, they can’t even come to that photo shoot”.
As expected Liz didn’t let that go unanswered, leading to a couple of back and fourths.
Cambage had once stated that she no longer has any respect for Andrew Bogut, who she once held in high regard.
At the moment there is uncertainty of reconciliation between the two. We hope in the future they can bury hatchet and carry on with their respective lives.
