Brittney Griner publicly came out as gay last month. The former Baylor center says she has been out since high school, so it’s not like she was hiding something. But maybe her announcement has led to more jeers from the public. Whatever the case, Griner thinks all the gay jokes are lame.
Take a look at what the current Phoenix Mercury center tweeted on Thursday:
It’s funny when someone try to be mean or hateful and call me gay! Ummmm duh HELLO I’m gay ima Lesbian! Not a secret! Get new material lol

Yes, so for the record, calling someone “gay” is not an insult. It’s just stupid. And in the case of Griner, she’s heard it all, so give it up already.Google+
