Now y’all know Michael Blackson is always ready with a joke, but did he go too far with this one? As we previously reported, Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in prison after being found guilty of attempted drug smuggling charges in Russia, and Blackson joked about having a lil’ something waiting for her upon being released.
In a tweet, Michael Blackson explicitly stated that he wants to get busy with Brittney once she comes home, and some folks weren’t feeling the joke. Some criticized Blackson for his bad timing, and others called him disrespectful for not considering Griner’s sexual orientation and marriage.
When Brittney Griner get out I want to be the first one to give her some deek.”

After experiencing some backlash, Blackson took to Twitter to explain that he and Griner are good friends and that she “has a great sense of humor” despite what the public may think. He shared a screenshot of some of their old Instagram messages captioned:
BG is my homie and she has a great sense of humor, met her 5 yrs ago and we’ve been cool since. I know she’s getting out soon that’s why I’m joking so ya need to stfu Modasuckas.”
The seemingly inappropriate joke was not the first that Blackson made after Brittney’s prison sentence was announced. He also made light of Russia’s proposition to trade her for a notorious arms dealer.
Russia funny as shit, these neegas wants to trade Britney Griner for a weapons of mass destruction killer, that’s like trading Scarface for PeeWee Herman Modasucka

Brittney’s prison sentence sparked outrage across social media and even provoked President Biden to demand that she be released.
