Brittany's support of Clark came on the same day that the Associated Press reported that the WNBA had reviewed Chicago Sky guard Chennedy Carter’s foul against Clark, in which Carter, 25, shoulder-checked and hip-checked Clark unprovoked before a play, knocking her to the ground.

Officials initially called the physical contact an away-from-the-ball foul and opted not to review the play. However, per the AP and other reports on Sunday, June 2, the foul was upgraded to a flagrant-1 violation after review by the WNBA.
