Why Cheer’s La’Darius Marshall and Gabi Butler are feuding
She added: “My rookie teammates, including a few who were also people of color, were asked to do so, and we complied with the request as we didn’t want to get in trouble with said veterans.”
Gabi reportedly included in his post “photos and videos of some of my other rookie teammates who followed the same instructions.” She added: “I’m sorry I need to involve my teammates in this, but I have no choice but to tell the truth about this situation as the lie has spread on social media. .”
One of Gabi’s friends, TT Barkerdefended himself, Tweeter“She’s literally one of my best friends and she didn’t give me any racist vibes.”
The next day, Gabi wrote on Twitter“For those who say I shouldn’t have participated, there’s a simple reason why I didn’t turn down that request. I had never even heard of blackface and had no idea it was blackface. “It was even a thing. If I had thought that this request had anything to do with racism, I would have absolutely refused.”
A user then writing to her, “I’m sorry but there’s no way you wouldn’t know what blackface was at your age. Even if you didn’t, how could you possibly feel comfortable with the black covering your whole face and not feeling disrespectful to black people Most people would have.
