These Jokes And Meme Reactions To Dwight Howard's Alleged Transgender 'Ex' Got Slammed As Toxic

Some are making fun of the messy situation while others are calling out transphobia.

Published November 25th

Dwight Howard is making headlines ever since a woman, who is believed to be transgender, took to Twitter to reveal that the Washington Wizards center abused her during an alleged secret relationship they had.

  1. Masin Elije claims Howard cheated on her with other trans women while the two were reportedly engaged in a romantic relationship. She also claims she’s now coming forward as a result of being stalked, threatened and harassed by Howard.

    Of course Twitter reacted to the news, however instead of sharing their concern for Elije’s safety – predictably – most mocked Howard for supposedly being with a trans person.

  2. Comedian Chris D’Elia pointed this out in a tweet
  3. Others came to Masin Elije's defense as well in hopes of dispelling the homophobia/transphobia
  4. Dwight Howard has not responded to the allegations publicly yet.
