Russell Wilson‘s fans came to the footballer’s defense after a Twitter user pointed out how his tone changes in different environments.
This comment came after Wilson uploaded a fashion video with his wife Ciara and her friends.
In a post shared on September 23 on some of Wilson’s social media platforms, including Instagram and TikTok, the group was seen helping the 33-year-old choose suits for undisclosed events.
The Denver Broncos quarterback began the video by saying, “So if you’re at home in your own kitchen, you gotta get the entire roster over here to pick your suits. That’s how you do it, it’s either a yes or a no. You love it or you don’t like it. Are you ready? You are all ready.”
Throughout the clip, Ciara and the group could be heard saying “yes or no” while Wilson swiped through the photos on his phone. After her reaction, Wilson said, “Okay, you guys did pretty well. That’s how they do it there.”
Alongside the video, Wilson wrote the caption, “Friday Night Picks w/ the Homies + @Ciara’s Matcha Häagen-Dazs.” As the upload circulated online, a Twitter user named @dianteleefb brought up how Wilson changes his behavior, including his voice, when he’s around another group of people.
While mentioning the word code-switching, this person wrote, “The way this man changes his voice based on his environment goes beyond code-switching.” Code-switching means to switch between languages for a number of reasons change, including solidarity with a particular social group.
As the tweet went viral and made rounds on social media blog sites like The Neighborhood Talk, many mentioned that Wilson isn’t the only person involved in code-switching.
“DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS REQUIRE DIFFERENT BEHAVIORS. NOTHING TO SEE HERE…GO ON.”
“I thought everyone turned off their professional voice when not working lol.”
“Yes, you have to be able to do that a bit in this world. That can have its advantages.”
“All black people did a code switch, you’ve never heard your mother on an important call. I bet she sounds real Sheryll’ish, they’re trying their best to get him just because he’s a loyal married man and doesn’t habitually disregard women.”
Among previous replies, others questioned why people find it necessary to constantly poke fun at Wilson on social media when they appear to be an all-around “good guy.”
One wrote: “I’m so tired of people picking this man up for every little thing. What has he done to some of you all?” Another said, “What’s really the beef about this guy? I mean he seems in love with his wife and taking care of his kids on the outside. Wtf is the damn problem.”
A third person said, “Why don’t people like him enough that he looks like a good guy?”
Wilson has not yet responded to the Twitter post.
