LaVar Ball has been making headlines for his statements for months now, but his latest appearance on Fox Sports's The Herd is causing a great deal of controversy. During the interview, he got into an argument with co-host Kristine Leahy over his Big Baller Brand company, telling the reporter to "stay in your lane."

When Leahy suggested that Big Baller Brand could be more successful by marketing to women, LaVar responded, "Yeah, if you have a women’s company. But we talking about Big Baller Brand.” As some have pointed out on Twitter, Big Baller Brand does sell women's apparel on their website.

Leahy has been critical of Ball and his family in the past. During a March 29 episode of the show, Leahy suggested that LaVar's was forcing his sons to play basketball and that his eldest son, Lonzo, was scared of his father.

LaVar Ball recently unveiled the release of Lonzo's signature sneaker, the ZO2, which comes with a $495 price tag. Watch a clip from LaVar Ball's interview on The Herd above.
