Having an excellent birthday surrounded my love and friends. Thank you to everyone who’s spared a thought, it means a lot to me far from home. I’m excited for this next year and all the challenges to overcome. #birthday #daisyinparis #happypappy
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.
