LaVar Ball’s CNN interview was everything you would have expected it to be, but Kristine Leahy wasn’t having any of it.
On Tuesday, the FOX Sports host ripped into CNN for giving LaVar a platform.
“Shame on CNN for putting this guy on,” Leahy said on Speak For Yourself. “Honestly. Shame on everybody who keeps putting LaVar Ball on the air. Because we have created this whole monster. Has he not done enough things that are just repulsive that we need to continue talking about him and giving him a platform?
“What he’s continuing to say is it’s all about me, it’s (a) means to an end, we will do whatever we need to do, put out whatever bad message we need to put out, as long as we get the publicity, as long as my kids get to the Lakers, as long as LiAngelo’s in the news. That’s all it is.”
Leahy’s feud with Ball stems from an appearance on FOX Sports 1 earlier this year when Ball told Leahy to “stay in your lane.”
The comments led to many people knocking Ball for being misogynistic, and Leahy clearly still has some beef. You can watch Leahy discuss the interview with Colin Cowherd below.
