Girl power at its finest! The WNBA’s LA Sparks sent a strong message to their haters with a Beyonce-inspired music video! Watch the women prevail over negative stereotypes in this epic rendition of ‘Sorry’!
Don’t underestimate the power of a woman! And, the WNBA‘s LA Sparks have made that very clear in their latest video! The women responded to haters who diminish the WNBA, and often attempt to pit the league against the NBA. They starred in their very own music video to Beyonce‘s hit, “Sorry”, where they say “Boy bye” to their haters. The video begins with a black screen, where negative comments about the WNBA are displayed sporadically. Some of the hateful comments read, “They deserve $15 an hour!!!” and “good now go back to the kitchen bc this isn’t a sport and nobody cares.”
Then, the track starts to play and the camera pans to an LA Sparks championship ring. As Beyonce’s belts out how she ain’t sorry about putting her middle fingers up, some of the team’s players, along with ESPN’s Holly Rowe stare confidently into the camera. The women looked radiant, dressed in bold outfits, including leather pants, crop tops and mesh bra tops.
As mentioned above, there are people who portray the WNBA to be inferior to the NBA, often causing some to speculate that the league’s are at odds. However, that’s the furthest thing from the truth. The NBA, including its stars Isaiah Thomas, Kobe Bryant and more, are all big fans of the WNBA. Nonetheless, there are still the internet bullies out there who fill social media sites with negativity, involving the power of women athletes. We’re glad to see that the LA Sparks decided to set the record straight, and in the most fashionable way possible!
The video ends with the following quote from G.D. Anderson: “Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives their strength.”
The LA Sparks originally split their response into two Instagram videos. However, the team’s account has since removed both posts. But, there is still a clip floating around, which one Twitter user captured. Watch, below!
Bottom line, no matter what haters may say, they’re letting the naysayers know just how not sorry they are, as they prepare for the Playoffs, which kick off on September 6!
The freaking LA Sparks deserve to be Champions forever for this video!!!! YES QUEENS!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/ovHK7wvshD
