Liz Cambage Hits Back At Rival Basketball Coach Who Body Shamed Her

Aussie Liz Cambage has put a rival basketball coach right in his place after he body shamed her during a recent WNBA game.

The Las Vegas Aces centre said "I will never let a man disrespect me" after Connecticut Sun head coach Curt Miller allegedly told a referee "C'mon man, she's 300 pounds."

Speaking after her side's 72-65 loss, 29-year-old Cambage went to town on Miller in a fiery video posted on her Instagram story.

And, well, she certainly didn't hold back.

"If there's one thing about me, it's that I'll never let a man disrespect me. Ever, ever, ever! Especially a little white one," she said.

"So to the coach of Connecticut - I'm sorry, little sir man, I do not know your name. But the next time you try to call out a referee trying to get a call being like, 'C'mon, she's 300 pounds', I'm going to need you to get it right baby.

"I'm 6-foot-8-inches, I'm weighing 235 pounds and I'm very proud of being a big b***h, big body, big benz, baby. So don't ever try to disrespect me or another woman in the league.

"I don't know if that's how coaches run? You're trying to disrespect people like that from the sideline? You're so lucky it was during a game. You're so lucky it was while I was doing my job.

"Anyway to that little man - whole little, tiny, like where is you? Stop trying to project your insecurities baby. Pick up the phone, call the psych, because you projecting some bulls**t right now.

"And next time you try to disrespect me, remember, I'm 235. It might seem like 300 pounds to your little a**. I'm 235, baby."

Miller has now been formally suspended and issued a $10,000 by the WNBA.

He has since come out and issued a public apology to Cambage for his comments.

"During last night's game, while arguing a call with an official, I made an inappropriate and offensive comment in reference to Liz Cambage's height and weight," Miller said in a statement.

"I regret what I said in the heat of the moment and want to sincerely apologise to Liz and the entire Aces organisation.

"I understand the gravity of my words and have learned from this."
