Did Sha'Carri Richardson Shade Allyson Felix & Jamaicans?




* 11x Olympic medalist and living legend visited Jimmy Kimmel the other day

* While on the show, she offered words of encouragement to Sha'Carri, who has had a difficult couple of months, after losing her spot on the Olympic track & field team due to a positive drug test and coming in last in her first post-Olympics race

* Said Felix: “I know that she’s obviously been through so much and I hope that she’s just supported. I hope people rally around her. Obviously she has a great personality and she’s brought a lot of attention to the sport and I think she’ll be in the sport for a very long time. I think just more than anything, for all athletes, there’s so much that goes into it. Just give her the support that she needs.”

* Sha'Carri seemingly responded by calling words of encouragement spoken on TV fake

* Could drama be brewing or is this just a misunderstanding / coincidence?



In other news, Sha'Carri liked a tweet perpetuating derogatory steoreotypes about Jamaicans

She has since unliked the tweet.

It's not the first time she has like and subsequently unliked a "shady" tweet. After coming in 9th at the Nike Prefontaine Classic, she liked a tweet comparing Jamaican runner Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce's looks to those of rapper Lil Wayne.







ONTD, should Sha'Carri hire a social media manager or are these just the growing pains of a woman ,who suddenly finds herself under intense, public scrutiny?
