LSU Women’s Coach Kim Mulkey: I will sue the Washington Post if they publish a false story about me

BollywoodFever, March 23: Kim Mulkey, the esteemed LSU women’s basketball coach who led her team to an NCAA championship last year, has issued a legal threat against the Washington Post amid speculations of an impending exposé about her. In a recent press conference, Mulkey didn’t mince words when criticizing the newspaper and the broader journalism industry.

“Reporters who give a megaphone to a one-sided embellished version of things aren’t trying to tell the truth,” Mulkey expressed her disdain for journalistic practices she views as untrustworthy. “They’re trying to sell newspapers and feed the click machine. This is exactly why people don’t trust journalists and the media anymore. It’s these kinds of sleazy tactics and hatchet jobs that people are just tired of. I’m fed up and I’m not gonna let the Washington Post attack this university, this awesome team of young women I have, or me, without a fight.”

Mulkey’s discontent stems from what she perceives as a long-standing bias from a specific Washington Post reporter, whom she accuses of attempting to tarnish reputations, including her own and that of LSU football coach Brian Kelly. “I felt the need to publicly address what exactly this reporter for the Washington Post has been doing the past several years. And the lengths he has gone to try and put a hit piece together … I told this reporter two years ago that I didn’t appreciate the hit job he wrote on [LSU football coach] Brian Kelly, and that’s why I wasn’t going to do an interview with him,” she detailed her grievances, highlighting her resolve to protect her reputation and that of her team.

Following LSU Coach Kim Mulkey’s press conference where she criticized the Washington Post, reporter Kent Babb, who had previously written a profile on LSU football coach Brian Kelly in 2022, responded with a brief message on X (formerly Twitter), saying “Hit piece?” and sharing a link to his article on Kelly.

Mulkey expressed her readiness to engage legally against the Washington Post, stating, “I have hired the best defamation law firm in the country, and I will sue the Washington Post if they publish a false story on me. Not many people are in a position to hold these kinds of journalists accountable but I am, and I’ll do it.” She accused the newspaper of contacting former players who were no longer part of the team to gather negative comments and attempting to deceive other coaches into making derogatory statements about her.

The LSU women’s basketball team, led by Mulkey, is set to face Middle Tennessee in the second round of the NCAA Tournament following their initial win over Rice with a score of 70-60.

Mulkey, 60, has a distinguished background in basketball, both as a player and a coach. She secured a national championship while playing for Louisiana Tech and later contributed to Team USA’s gold medal victory at the 1984 Olympics. Before her tenure at LSU, where she won the championship last year, she led Baylor to three national titles. Known for her support towards her players’ personal challenges, Mulkey has faced criticism, notably in her interactions with Brittney Griner, a former Baylor player she coached. Griner acknowledged Mulkey’s support against negative crowd behavior but also mentioned Mulkey’s advice to hide her tattoos and refrain from openly discussing her sexuality.
