Welcome to the internet.
Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner was on everyone’s mind as the WNBA All-Star game tipped off in Chicago this past Sunday. Griner was named an honorary All-Star player this year and every effort was made to spread awareness of her situation.
For others on the internet, a picture of Brittney Griner, allegedly, was going viral on the net. The topless photo was posted, and it quickly took off, sparking debate whether or not Brittney was born a man or a woman.

'She' even has an Adam's apple.
How will people respond if it turns out Griner is a dude that has been unfairly playing with women? https://t.co/62DiFjQ0gw

Brittney Griner now faces up to 10 years in Russian prison.
But clearly some are more concerned with her gender. Hopefully we can get Brittney home safe and sound.
Until then this picture really shouldn’t matter..
