Kristine Leahy’s Feud With LaVar Ball
In May 2017 Kristine received what were regarded as apparent sexist remarks from media personality, LaVar Ball on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. Apparently, he never faced in Kristine’s direction during the whole interview and was only trying to talk with Colin Cowherd on the other side of the studio.
In the argument Kristine had with LaVar about how the Big Baller Brand should market to both women and men, LaVar asserted that his brand was not for women. And when Kristine asked LaVar about the number of shoes he had already sold, he suggested her to ‘stay in her lane.’
Kristine expressed that she believed LaVar was disrespecting women during the segment, to which LaVar responded by calling her a hater for her past criticism of his parenting. He further commented about how she scared him and didn’t want to look over at her.
Kristine responded to her argument with LaVar, saying,
So he was upset at me for what I said there, and that’s completely fine. But you can’t come at me and disrespect me and not look me in the eye and threaten me. That’s just not OK.
The upsetting relation lingered for a long time as Kristine even criticized CNN for inviting LaVar to discuss his dispute with US President Donald Trump in November 2017.
