Kim Kardashian took to Instagram Stories on Tuesday in support of freeing Brittney Griner, the WNBA standout who has been in custody in Russia for more than four months in what federal authorities call a wrongful detainment.

The 41-year-old celebrity reposted a post comic Amy Schumer, 41, put up last week accompanied by a shot of Griner, 31, appearing in a Russian court. Schumer captioned the shot: 'Let’s go everybody. This is not okay. #freebrittneygriner now. All hands on deck. Make some noise.'

In addition to Kardashian, the post from Schumer received supportive sentiments from actress Anneliese van der Pol, 37, and reality star Lisa Rinna, 58.

Kardashian shared the post with her 322 million Instagram followers amid news that President Joe Biden had read a handwritten letter from Griner in which she said she was fearful of not returning to the U.S. and urged him to note 'forget about [her] and the other American Detainees,' the AP reported.

In the letter, provided by Griner's reps, the Phoenix Mercury star wrote, 'As I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I'm terrified I might be here forever.

'On the 4th of July, our family normally honors the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran. It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year.'
