Australian Basketballer in Big Kanye Trouble
Australian women's basketball player Alice Kunek is in big trouble after she dressed up as Kanye West and painted her arms and face black, to do so. It caused controversy after her teammate Liz Cambage shared a screenshot of the post on her twitter.
I'm am so shocked and disturbed to see this behavior from someone I'm meant to call a "teammate" pic.twitter.com/Rz9Hp33oCs— Elizabeth Cambage (@ecambage) February 21, 2016
Alice then defended herself on saying ''I'm sorry that people would think my support of Kanye as being racist in some way.'' She continued '' people who know, know that I don't judge others based on the colour of their skin''.

Despite her insistence that her costume was not racist, many people including Cambage didn't agree and blasted the player for her behaviour.

We are sure this is not the last we have heard about this and it seems to have the team at loggerheads.
