The Los Angeles Lakers are investigating after a woman accused guards Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson of sexually harassing her and her mother on Sunday night, reports ESPN.

The incident came to light when the woman, Alexis Jones, posted photos of four men in a Jeep who she said yelled and made vulgar gestures at her and her mother while they were both stopped at a red light. Commenters identified two of those men as Clarkson and Young.


Jones is a co-founder of I AM THAT GIRL, a non-profit that helps “girls to transform self-doubt in to self-love by providing a safe space to connect and have honest conversations about things that matter.” She says the irony of Young and Clarkson sexually harassing her is that she was working with the NBA to have the league adopt one of her programs.

Lakers PR guy John Black told ESPN that the Lakers are taking the incident “very seriously,” and that Bryon Scott has spoken to both players about it.

Update (8:05 p.m.): Nick Young weighs in.


Update (8:28 p.m.): Nick Young deleted his tweet (of course), so here it is for posterity’s sake.


Also, maybe Lou Williams is subtweeting his teammates, or maybe he’s just tweeting some thoughts.
