Since then, Angel Reese made a tweet insinuating that not everything is as it seems:
She also reposted this video of Deion's presser from earlier in the year about not caring about anyone's opinion:
Can we call a spade a spade and say that Kim Mulkey is handling this entire situation extremely poorly? The "if you do disciplining of your own children, do you think we're entitled to know that" line makes me think the speculation is true, and if it isn't, Mulkey's presser after every game isn't helping that narrative.
