Angel Reese calls out hypocrisy over Quinn Ewers, Ja Morant celebrations
Angel Reese is feeling dj vu.
Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers appeared to perform the same outstretched-arm celebration during the Sugar Bowl on Monday that Grizzlies star Ja Morant did last week, with some critics slamming Morant because they believed he was making a gun gesture after recently returning from a 25-game suspension for flashing a gun in an Instagram video for the second time.
Reese, the LSU women’s basketball star who was embroiled in her own celebration controversy with Iowa’s Caitlin Clark during the NCAA championship game in April, responded to a photo comparing the Barstool X account’s reactions to Ewers and Morant.
The account tweeted “Quinn Ewers is having fun,” and “Ja spraying imaginary bullets into section 113 after the slam.”
“Lol ive seen this before.,” Reese wrote on X.
Reese famously taunted Clark during the championship game, doing the same John Cena “you can’t see me” hand gesture that Clark did during the Elite Eight before pointing to her ring finger as LSU went on to win the national title.

We all know that theres a white/black issue here, because the fact of the matter is when Caitlin did it people were celebrating it, and they were talking about nothing but her greatness, Smith said on “First Take” in April after the title game.
But then the second a sister stepped up, and threw it back in her face, now youve got half the basketball world saying, in a mocking tone, Well, thats not the classiest thing to do. It was the exact same thing!

He returned to the team on Dec. 19.
