After calling America “trash” on Twitter, Washington Mystics player Natasha Cloud doubled down on her verbal attacks towards the United States so much that former NBA star Enes Kanter Freedom offered to buy her a plane ticket to the totalitarian leftist hell-hole of her choice.
“Our country is trash in so many ways and instead of using our resources to make it better we continue to oppress Marginalized groups that we have targeted since the beginning of times,” Cloud tweeted last week. “Black/brown communities& LGBTQ+ man we are too powerful to still be attacking separate.”
From there, she doubled down and began to target the police, critics, and basically everyone who took offense to her calling the nation “trash,” labeling dissenters as “racists.”
Obviously, Freedom, well known for speaking out against the Chinese Communist Party, vaccine mandates, and other outright horrible things harming humanity, took issue to that.
The man from Turkey (and WWE 24/7 Champion) is generous. He offered to buy Cloud a ticket to anywhere “better” than America.
So after receiving Freedom’s generous offer, Cloud not-so-kindly declined.
“I have respect for @EnesFreedom lived experience in his country,” Cloud tweeted. “I would expect him to have the same respect for MY lived experience as a black gay woman in my country. You have no idea what it means to walk my journey or anyone else’s for that matter.”
What’s ironic is that she either completely forgot or simply ignored the fact that the former Boston Celtics star is in fact an American citizen who has proudly lived in the good ol’ US of A for close to a decade. Needless to say, he has a pretty good idea of how American life seems to contradict her oppressed “lived experience.”

Unlike Freedom, who is not allowed to step foot into his home country of Turkey for speaking out on the oppressive government there, Cloud can say what she wants about anything because she’s protected by the First Amendment and lives in a country were she’s more than guaranteed to walk the streets safely.
The funniest thing about all of this though is that she made these comments within a year of the Brittney Griner trade in which the United States gave Russia infamous international weapons dealer Viktor Bout in exchange for the WNBA player, who also happens to be a black lesbian. If America is so terrible, we’d have left her to remain in a Russian gulag.
Freedom responded a week later directly to Cloud, who kept dragging things out further.
“I mean no disrespect,” tweeted Freedom. “I have respect for every activist who uses their platform to make change. That’s the beauty of freedom of speech and protest. However calling America ‘trash’ is harsh. You can say America is not perfect, and we have lots of work to do.
“I know the alternative. People get hanged, raped and tortured to death in the Middle East just for asking for basic freedom,” he continued. “Also I know the struggles the black community go through. I’ve had many teammates who educated me well enough and I empathize with that. Again, I’m not saying America is perfect, but it’s far from trash. At least we are not Iran, China, Russia or Turkey.”
