Celebrities react to Brittney Griner’s Russian sentence

This week a Russian court sentenced Brittney Griner to nine years in a penal colony after pleading guilty to drug-related offences. Griner was arrested in February after officers found cannabis oil in her luggage. In Griner’s statement, which Reuters provided, she says she made an honest mistake and “had no intention of breaking any Russian laws.”

The world was shocked by the court’s decision, believing the harsh punishment to be related to rising tensions between Russia and the US as the war against Ukraine continues. Celebrities reacted to the ruling, breaking the news and calling on the US government to act and stand up for Griner.
