Hey, figure skating fans! Remember the time when Gracie Gold repeatedly posted racist things in public? Remember when she insulted the reigning Olympic silver medalist Mao Asada and Mao’s graciousness in inviting her in a Japanese ice show by denigrating her English with a stereotypical accent she doesn’t even have? Remember when she blocked people for telling her that “joke” was insensitive? Remember when her apology boiled down to “It was just a joke, I’m sorry you were offended?” I remember all of this, and I also recall that her federation has gone and is going to bat for her without caveat, because she has the “classic ice princess” look. I wonder what they mean by that.
People should also remember that vine she had on her twitter where a black woman at the airport was DOING HER FUCKING JOB and gracie titled it as “Sass at O’Hare.” She’s dead to me.
Oh my god. So she did. She is disgusting. Ugh.
(thanks for pointing that out and thanks fuckyeahfeelingamazing for finding that)
