Brittney Griner entangled in online controversy with a social media ‘provocateur’
Internet sensation and social media ‘provocateur’ Aapparentlyb, known for their controversial behavior online, recently targeted basketball player Brittney Griner in a Twitter exchange that left Griner feeling victimized.
The online altercation
The exchange began when Apparentlyb sent a tweet to Griner that read, “I bet you were an amazing 12-year-old girl.” Griner responded, “Why would you say that?” Apparentlyb replied, “Because you look like you peaked at 12.” Griner, clearly offended by the comment, responded, “I don’t appreciate that, and I’m done with this conversation.”
The reaction to the exchange
The exchange quickly went viral, with many people expressing their disgust at Apparentlyb’s derogatory comments towards Griner. Supporters of the basketball player, including fellow athletes, fans, and members of the LGBTQ+ community, rallied behind her in an effort to show her that she was not alone.
Shining a light on cyberbullying
This exchange has brought to the forefront the issue of cyberbullying, particularly when it comes to high-profile individuals like Griner. While online harassment can be difficult to deal with for anyone, Griner’s status as a public figure makes it all the more challenging. Many fans have expressed their hopes that this incident will shed light on the issue of cyberbullying and provoke a larger conversation about how to address this growing problem.
Following the exchange, Griner released a statement in which she stated her intent to “focus on the positive” and “leave negativity behind.” She went on to say that she hoped the situation would inspire others to stand up against cyberbullying and show their support for those who have been victimized.
