The Twitter trolls didn’t take Father’s Day off. Sadly, the jokes poke fun at her sexual orientation. A judge recently ordered Griner to pay child support for the couple’s twins despite the fact that the basketball player does not have any biological connection to the twins.

The easy solution seems to be ignoring the messages but a better solution may be a filter system. Social media services may be forced to monitor all the messages sent over their respected platforms if users continue to send reckless messages.
Cyberbullying is defined as deliberate actions that are generally repeated. The intent of the actions are to cause harm to another person. Think twice before you send your next offensive message via social media. The result could land you in prison. What if the messages lead Griner to commit suicide?
