LSU head coach Kim Mulkey refuses to answer questions about Brittney Griner.
Mulkey was Griner’s coach in Baylor when the team went undefeated and won a National Championship back in 2012.
Mulkey has been silent about Griner’s imprisonment in Russia and said she would not comment on Griner’s situation during a recent press conference.
“I wanted to get your thoughts on the Britney Griner situation, I don’t think I’ve seen anything from you on that.”

People were furious with Mulkey for not commenting on the Griner situation.
To quote @drdre "Here's what they think about you."
Some of these coaches use players up, get paid, and then wash their hands of the kids who got them a ring. Kim Mulkey won a title because of Britney. https://t.co/NGfNnT1NRp

You spent 4 years with the woman and countless hours around her. She’s got nothing to say about BG? https://t.co/VQUU7kBceM

A garbage human. Brittney Griner led Mulkey’s team to an undefeated season and national championship. She can’t even muster a shred of empathy or well wishes to BG or her family. Disgusting. https://t.co/IRXDwClOVD

Kim Mulkey coached Brittney Griner for 4 years. Griner led one of her teams to an undefeated season and national championship. And Mulkey can't even bring herself to offer sympathy to Griner's wife or hope that Griner is safe and will be released soon. What an awful person. https://t.co/uLgOHCLqaN
