Hammer thrower Gwen Berry is under fire as her old tweets mocking “White people” have resurfaced.
Berry tweeted July 29, 2011 “White people are sooo retarded when they are drunk.”
About a month earlier in 2011, Berry tweeted “This lil white boy being bad as hell!! I would smack his ass then stomp him!! Smh #whitepplKids hella disrespectful”
Berry also made a strange comment in October of 2012.
Here are some of the responses to Berry’s old tweets.
It was 10 years ago, maybe she was drunk. But the hissy fit in the podium is a BIG problem. It was disrespectful to the other athletes to steal the spotlight because you were beat. And when it comes to Olympics, respect for your country and sportsmanship are valid expectations

Guess this would be called racist and derogatory to mentally handicapped folks…but oh wait…she is a black woman! Will she get a pass and be allowed to compete in the Olympics? Bet if was white male she wouldn’t be!

Little did you know ten years later you’d be in the spotlight and people would actually see your tweets. Tsk tsk tsk
