    People Jokingly Believe Vin Diesel Is Responsible For Brittney Griner's Release Because Of Something He Posted On Instagram A Couple Of Weeks Ago

    I'd like to believe.

    Brittney Griner has been released from Russian prison!

    Moments ago I spoke to Brittney Griner. She is safe. She is on a plane. She is on her way home.


    She has been detained there since February.

    And everyone is obviously really happy about it.

    Brittney is coming home. ๐Ÿ’•

    But one person is definitely smiling bigger than the rest, and that person is Vin Diesel.

    You see, Vin Diesel *may* be responsible for this...

    A couple of weeks ago, Vin Diesel posted on Instagram advocating for Brittney Griner's release.

    In the now-deleted post, Vin captioned a pic of him giving a thumbs up with: "I need Brittney Griner home before Christmas."

    And yep, she's coming home before Christmas.

    People, of course, *believe* Vin is responsible for this.

    The Fast and Furious movie where Vin Diesel and the fam go to Russia and save Brittney Griner is going to be crazy.

    Either way, this is exactly the right amount of ridiculous I needed today.
