Australian Opals star Anneli Maley has accused Andrew Bogut’s followers on social media of threatening her with violence.
Maley took aim at Bogut earlier this month when he revealed a transgender athlete had applied to play in the women’s second-tier NBL competition and extended an invitation to discuss the issue with him.
The pair had agreed to speak on Bogut’s Rogue Bogues podcast, but on Instagram, Bogut criticised Maley for pulling out of the interview, while she said her safety had been compromised.

“People that follow YOU showed up at MY HOUSE. I received Hundreds of physical threats,” she posted on Instagram.
“I decided not to have a conversation with you because after a few social media posts I wasn’t safe.”
