The internet debates if Tom Brady would be treated differently than Brittney Griner in Russia

At the time of publication, WNBA star, Brittney Griner, is being detained by the Russian government after some vape hash cartridges were found in her luggage at a security checkpoint. The Phoenix Mercury player is currently in diplomatic limbo as advocates try to get her released. This as Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine with the entire world watching.

But the following tweet promoting an NY Magazine article asking what would be happening if it were a more popular athlete such as Tom Brady being held in custody, got trending on Wednesday, and has sparked a passionate debate.

That set off the argument with many people bringing up Griner’s drug paraphernalia, while others claimed if her standing was as high as Brady’s she would already be home.

What do you think? Would Tom Brady be treated differently? Are we doing enough to get Brittney Griner out of Russia? Are we making a difference closing the difference between male and female sports?
