Nick Young has an unusual response to woman who accused him of harassment

Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson made headlines this week when an Instagram post accusing the two Lakers of street harrassment went viral.

According to Alexis Jones, an activist and public speaker, Young and Clarkson made "vulgar" gestures at her and her mother while the two were stopped at a stoplight in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

The Lakers have since investigated the incident internally and chalked things up to a "miscommunication" between the two parties. That seemed to be the end the matter, as far the Lakers were concerned, but it appears Young still has a bone to pick.

The Lakers shooting guard tweeted a couple messages Wednesday seemingly addressing the incident. The first tweet featured a YouTube video of an old news segment Jones did for highlighting how Young came to play basketball for the University of Southern California.

He followed this with a tweet about the treatment of public figures:

So…this is weird.

The point Young appears to be trying to make here is that Jones knew who he was when she posted her initial accusation, in which she posted pictures of Young and Clarkson asking her followers to help her identify her harassers.

In any case, Young clearly isn’t happy with how all this went down, and he’s still tweeting his displeasure.
