Being a Laker in Los Angeles is undoubtedly the wave. Win or lose (and they're losing a lot this season), you're still a winner. But that doesn't excuse you from being a dickhead when you're off the court.
One woman is exposing three young Lakers players -- Jordan Clarkson, DeAngelo Russell and Nick Young, aka Swaggy P -- for harassing her and her mother while they were stuck in traffic in West Hollywood.
She posted this image of the young men, explaining that they were yelling and making "vulgar gestures."
Without even knowing who they were, Alexis Jones went off, saying,
I pray these pics go viral because THIS is the problem with little boys. Five minutes ago, at the intersection of Melrose and La Bre here in LA, a jeep of four boys pulled up at a red light and started yelling and making the most disgustingly vulgar gestures at my mom and me. I rarely 'rant' about things but this is the f%+#ing problem and the reason I've now dedicated my life to educating young men about respect, not just for women but for everyone. I'm angry. I'm insulted. I'm hurt. They were laughing hysterically until they realized I was filming them and immediately they panicked like the cowards they are. Thank you to all the real men out there who would never treat a mother and daughter that way... Speaking of, I'd love for this to make it back to their mothers!!! Help me find who these guys are!!! Let's see the power of social media and hold them accountable. I'd LOVE to have a candid conversation with them about sexual harassment not simply to shame them, but to understand their mentality so we can better educate young men to be respectful in the future. #littleboys #cowards #realmenrespectwomen #messedwiththewrongchick #wewillfindyou @iamthatgirl
Alexis didn't exactly say what the Lakers players were doing or saying, so we can't exactly assume they did anything wrong.
Judging by the looks on their faces, however, they were definitely peeping. Not to mention, the dude on the bottom is definitely dying laughing over something -- hopefully it wasn't some vulgar, sexist sh*t.
Either way, young athletes have extraordinary lives and make millions of dollars, but it doesn't excuse them from disrespecting others, no matter how they're pulling up.
Maybe the three players will have the chance to resolve this with Alexis face to face.
