NBA star Russell Westbrook is currently trending on social media over his choice of outfit yesterday. The Los Angeles Laker wore a white dress while attending a fashion show in New York.
And Russell’s fans are giving mixed reviews on his fashion choices.
While some of the NBA baller’s fans think it was a “:bold” fashion decision, others are troubled by it. They claim that Russell is playing into a racial stereotype where Black men are systematically “buck-broken” or feminized, as a way to dominate them.
