The news of Brittney Griner’s transfer to a penal colony this morning shocked many close to the situation. The Phoenix Mercury star, who was sentenced to nine years in Russian prison for possessing less than a gram of hashish oil, has been detained for 265 days. Her family and legal team don’t currently know her location. The outrage in the sports world and beyond was expressed on social media.

The Women’s Basketball Player’s Association tweeted out a statement that other WNBA players have shared, including Candace Parker.

Griner’s teammate on the Mercury Brianna Turner, who has been outspoken about Griner’s situation, took to Twitter to share her frustration.

“This is so frustrating to know. I miss BG so much. The past 265 days have left me uncertain, confused and dazed. Of course I remain hopeful for her sake, but this is still an everyday nightmare for so much of her family, friends, and supporters as we try to navigate this #WeAreBG”

American singer Cher also went on Twitter and delivered an all-caps message.

The Biden Administration has been working on a prisoner swap to get Griner back to the United States (though they claim Russia has not been negotiating in good faith). Secretary of State Anthony Blinken released a statement through Twitter.
