Many parts of the internet reacted with transphobia, homophobia and plain confusion ―assuming the accuser was a transgender woman when he actually identifies as a gay man. Some also focused more on Dwight Howard’s alleged sexual preferences rather than the accusations that Howard threatened someone with violence.
Howard has yet to respond to the allegations.
