The Sky’s security stepped in and defused the situation, escorting the man away.

“It was over as fast as it started,” Pagliocca told the outlet. “I’m very confident in our security always making our players feel safe. Today was a great example of how critical they are to our team.”

“WOW!!! Thank GOD for security. My teammate being harassed at our hotel is insane! Couldn’t even step off the bus!!!” Harrison wrote.

“Getting harassed at our hotel is where the line needs to be drawn. Some ‘fans’ have NO CHILLLLL,” Onyenwere added on X. “We have security, and they did a great job of de-escalating the situation/protecting us. It’s still extremely weird & crosses the boundaries meeting us right when we get off the bus.”

The Sky are in Washington, D.C., to take on the Mystics. Their game tips off on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.
