Kennedy Carter and the Chicago Sky were allegedly harassed when they arrived at the team hotel in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.

A man confronted the team – specifically targeting Carter – before the Sky got off the bus before they played the Musketeers on Thursday. According to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The unidentified man had a camera and was escorted out by Sky Team security, general manager Jeff Pagliocca told the broadcaster.

Police were not called to the hotel and the situation quickly escalated, GM reported.

Pagliocca said they planned to talk to Carter, though it was unclear what the man said, and he was unable to find out which hotel Skye was staying at.

According to the Sun-Times, Skye will travel with a number of bodyguards who will stay with the players wherever they go.

“It’s over as quickly as it started,” Pagliocca told the newspaper. “I am confident in our safety and always make our players feel safe. Today was a great example of how important they are to our team.

Skye and a person with Carter’s agency did not immediately respond to messages from the Post.

News of the incident first surfaced on social media after several Sky players posted on X, although they did not mention Carter by name.

“It’s a bad thing to get off the bus and find our team hotel with a camera and put it in my teammate’s face and make her uncomfortable.” Celestial Star Angel Reese spoke..

“Thank God for his safety.” Skywalker Isabelle Harrison writes.. “My teammates are being harassed at our hotel. I couldn’t even get off the bus.”

Carter has found herself embroiled in ongoing controversy after she fouled Clarke off the ball during the Sky’s loss to the Fever on Saturday.

The play has spawned many pundits and debates about Carter’s actions during the game and his reaction in the days following the game.

His physicality has raised questions about whether Clarke is being targeted by WNBA opponents over the star power she brings to the league.

An Indiana congressman went so far as to write a letter to WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert asking her to respond to Clark’s treatment after joining the league.

“Chennedy Carter went out of her way to knock Clark to the ground without any player catching the ball. Additionally, the excessive force was encouraged and supported by Carter’s teammate, Angel Reese,” Congressman Jim Banks (R, IN-3) wrote in the letter.
