“Instead I have always given my support to a community that I greatly love and respect. But this implore is starting to irritate me, not because my in laws have to respond to this BS but because humans like you put allies off speaking up. I have always had nothing but respect for Michelle actually, but the fact that I’m involved in something that has nothing to do with me needs to end. If you are so concerned, I have tagged Michelle, don’t speculate, ask her your damn self if she was referring to me, then leave my page.”
