Dwight Howard is having a bad weekend. A man—who at first many assumed was trans but identifies as gay—took to Twitter to accuse the NBA center of having threatened him after they engaged in intimate relations he wanted to keep on the down low.
Masin Elije is speaking her truth, allegedly, and putting D. Howard on full blast. The thread is legit incredible. It features trans sex parties, a homophobic preacher allegedly running interference and receipts in the form of audio recordings and screen caps.
But even better may be the Twitter reactions. We collected the best of the slander, while ducking any unnecessary transphobia and homophobia because…it’s 2018.

Dwight Howard can still catch all these jokes, though. Really, he can do whatever he wants. But it’s the harassment, if true, that is foul. Go down the rabbit hole…

Anybody cracking basic ass jokes about this Dwight Howard situation need to get a grip.— Raquel Willis (@RaquelWillis_) November 25, 2018
Athletes love trans women, like many of your friends. This ain’t new.
And neither is the abuse and violence they throw our way because of their insecurities.

These Dwight Howard tweets is just... There’s so much homophobia crap on these twitter streets. I hope y’all are taking notice & rectifying who y’all follow.— ♿️TEE FRANKLIN HAS FAILED THIS COUNTRY🌈 (@MizTeeFranklin) November 25, 2018
Black men can be bisexual, there’s nothing wrong with that. What IS wrong is harassing & threatening the trans woman.
