Los Angeles Clippers player Patrick Patterson has apologizes for his recent comments, where he compared black women to “bulldogs.” Patterson posted a picture of himself and his wife Sarah Nassar for their wedding anniversary. He captioned the pic, “In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine. Happy Anniversary.”

One fan wrote in Patterson's comments, “Bro you grew up loving our women. Why wait until you get some real money for your perspective and even if you wasn’t in the NBA and worked at Walmart in Toronto,you wouldn’t stand a chance bro you just became another statistic. I bet she’s the only one in her family to date a black stay woke my guy.”

After going back and forth with the fan, he asked, “why does it matter?” He then said, “So I should settle for a bulldog and act like I’m happy with my life and preach ‘keep it in your race’ to the world as if Dr. King didn’t fight/die for equality, acceptance, all cultures loving one another, and no hate?”


After being dragged, Patterson issued a public apology, saying, “I want to address my use of the word ‘bulldog’ during a conversation with someone who I felt was making disrespectful remarks about my wife and our relationship. I responded with the same, making a cruel comment on his wife’s physical stature. I know that two wrongs don’t make a right, but I let my emotions get the better of me in the heat of the moment. For that, I apologize to him, his wife, and the rest of his family for the hurtful and crude comments made on that day. I love my black people, I believe in love and equality.”
