WNBA Player Natasha Cloud Unrepentant For Calling America 'Trash'

Natasha Cloud has no regrets about calling America "trash."

The Washington Mystics guard drew some serious criticism and heat after ranting on Twitter that the USA is a "trash" country in what appeared to be a response to Supreme Court decisions.

The Supreme Court recently ruled affirmative action for college admissions is unconstitutional and ruled government can't force compelled speech when it comes to art in relationship to a website designer.

"Our country is trash in so many ways and instead of using our resources to make it better we continue to oppress Marginalized groups that we have targeted since the beginning of times. Black/brown communities& LGBTQ+ man we are too powerful to still be attacking issues separate," Cloud tweeted late last week.

Natasha Cloud thinks America is "trash."

Well in case you thought she'd walk back her comments, she definitely didn't. Instead, Cloud doubled down on her criticism.

Cloud fired off a flurry of tweets over the weekend claiming cops murder people, people are put in prison based on their race, took shots at people telling her to leave the country, called out religion and more.

It's crystal clear she has no regrets about calling America "trash" and appears to truly feel that way in her heart.

The WNBA player even had the audacity to claim people hate her simply for being a gay black woman, but failed to provide specifics.

It looks like she expects people to just take her at her word.

Cloud isn't backing down.

Her initial claim that America is "trash" was appalling. America isn't a "trash" country. Not at all. It's the greatest country on the planet, and we shouldn't ever apologize for loving it so much.

A lot of men and women have made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. I know men who watched their friends die in war, killed in defense of this country and they carry those memories with them every day.

They were willing to die for this "trash" country, and many of their friends did.

Yet, Natasha Cloud doesn't seem to care one bit about reality. The Supreme Court made rulings she didn't like, and because of that, she thinks the USA is an awful place. Not only is the country awful in her opinion, but her critics are apparently racist and religious fanatics.

It makes no sense at all.

Sometimes, you just need to apologize when you say something stupid. Apologize and move on. Instead, Natasha Cloud pushed all her chips onto the table and doubled down. Absolutely embarrassing. America is not a "trash" country. It's a beautiful country, and there's nothing she can say or do that will change that.
