It is absolutely free to write and post whatever you feel like on the internet. That allows people to cross their boundaries and become hurtful and unreasonable to others. As the rumors grew strong around Wiggins, his girlfriend Mychal Johnson tweeted “Literally the farthest thing from the truth. It’s sad y’all even doing this”. This tweet met with responses from entitled people who asked her, “Then tell us what’s going on”.
