After talking with all parties involved, the Lakers have concluded there are “different interpretations of what happened” surrounding harassment allegations that activist Alexis Jones made on both Jordan Clarkson and Nick Young.
“We support Nick and Jordan and believe what they told us about the incident and their actions,” Lakers spokesman John Black said in a statement. “We also are supportive of Alexis and her feelings about what happened, about women’s rights, and of the fine work Alexis is doing with her organization.”
Jones, an activist devoted toward women’s equality with the ProtectHer program, uploaded photos of Young and Clarkson in a car on her Instagram account. Jones then accused them of sexually harassing her and her 68-year-old mother on Sunday night in Hollywood. Black said he has “several conversations” with Jones and her publicist since then about arranging a meeting with both Clarkson and Young.
“Unfortunately, Alexis’s schedule didn’t allow for this to happen [Monday],” Black said in a statement. “We will also continue to stay in touch with her about the possibility of addressing our team about the important issues with which she’s involved.”
