About Dolph’s Law, Dolph told CNN on Instagram the: “The meme is basically just trying to address situations that I’ve been in and everything that I feel like I’ve been through,” said Dolph. “It’s just like spreading awareness and letting other people know to look at me as an example and a resource of how you can overcome a lot of the struggles we go through in this world and just turn it into something positive.

In November, Dolph described an assault on him in October 2018, in which two men assaulted him on the streets of Atlanta.
“Five dudes came into a parking lot, and one of them kicked my side,” he said. “And as soon as they kicked my side, the other one pulled his gun out and started going to the backseat and taking off with my stuff. That’s when I grabbed the car and took off the front passenger side window. When I got to this spot, I was so far in there with my hands in the air, I guess the people that beat me actually shot me in the back of the leg because my legs didn’t leave the ground.”
