There have been many memes, that people may consider in poor taste, or offensive, or outraging but that I think we should view as comedy since it is just the internet, involving the WNBA superstar who is spending the next 9 years in a Russian penal camp for drug charges after smuggling drugs into Russia, assuming the US Government doesn't trade some Russian criminals for her early release.

One of those memes is a viral story that was packaged as being a CNN report on Brittney Griner getting a DNA test to prove she is female, in order to send her to the female prison.

When dealing with a 6 foot 8 tall woman, poking fun at her masculinity is probably pretty common, since her sheer size alone puts most men to shame and she could likely kick their asses with little to no effort.

The internet, being a fun yet insensitive place doesn't mind kicking them when they are down, so clearly the story went viral to the point where CNN had to make a statement that it's not a true story, Brittney Griner is a woman who will be at the female prison, and that the internet are just a bunch of jerks.

Glad we cleared that one up, but no word on whether those topless pics of her circulating are fake news too..

Here's the story broken down more for you in USA TODAY in the event "Britney Griner getting a DNA test to prove she's a she is fake news" isn't enough for you.

This was the meme that is officially Fake:
