Tweets of U.S. Olympian Gwen Berry Who Turned Her Back On Anthem Surface – Derogatory Towards Chinese, Mexicans, Whites
Berry: ‘This lil white boy being bad as hell!! I would smack his *** then stomp him!! Smh #whitepplKids hella disrespectful’
Last weekend, third-place hammer thrower Gwen Berry caused a stir when she had a temper tantrum over the sight of the American flag and the sound of the American national anthem as she stood on the podium at the U.S. Olympic team trials.
Gwen Berry, a hammer thrower who qualified for the U.S. Olympic team during the trials, apparently is trying out for the wrong country’s Olympic team. During the trials, she turned away from the American flag and said she was “pissed” that the “Star Spangled Banner” was played while she stood on the podium for a bronze trial medal.
Berry says it felt like a “set up” to be forced to endure the horrific torture of seeing the flag and of hearing the national anthem . . . . of the country whose Olympic team she wants to join. Surreal.
I thought she came in first, had no issues with what she did but came to realize she actually won third place and completely ruined the moment for first and second place. My goodness.

Not content to act like a privileged, spoiled brat, Berry then went on to defend her childish antics by torturing history.
Olympian @MzBerryThrows: “If you know your history, you know the full song of the National Anthem. The third paragraph speaks to slaves in America, our blood being slang and piltered all over the floor. It’s disrespectful and it doesn’t speak for black Americans. It’s obvious" pic.twitter.com/NF0cV7YDgr

No it doesn't. It's a disdaining reference to English subjects. I know you want it to be all about you, but it isn't.

So what she is saying is that she doesn’t know her history. Got it

When asked whether she intended to behave equally poorly at the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, should she even place against the world’s best hammer throwers, Berry responded: ““We’ll see. It just depends on how I’m feeling and what I want to do in that moment.”
Now old tweets are surfacing that show Berry to be a rampant racist with particular disdain for Mexicans, the Chinese, and, of course, white people. She also committed the leftist offense of using “the word ‘retarded’ in a derogatory way” and of making “a crude remark about rape,” another no-no for the woke brigade.
The majority of the tweets came when Berry was in her early 20s – well before she was on the Olympic teams for Rio in 2016 and Team USA for the 2014 Pan American Sports Festival, however she was still competing for the U.S. at a national level.
Some of the tweets appeared to mock people based on their race, with Berry writing in November 2012: ‘Mexicans just don’t care about ppl’.
In April 2011 she wrote: ‘Just saw this gurl wearing heels with white socks!! What the Hell..#chineseppl always try to start new trends..smh..ggguuurrrllll.’
‘This lil white boy being bad as hell!! I would smack his *** then stomp him!! Smh #whitepplKids hella disrespectful,’ she tweeted in Jun 2011.
‘White people are sooo retarded when they are drunk,’ Berry wrote in a tweet later that same year.
‘This lil white boy being bad as hell!! I would smack his ass then stomp him!! Smh #whitepplKids hella disrespectful,’ Berry wrote in a June 2011 tweet.
‘#BasketballWives is proof that white ppl run they got damn mouths too much n they nosey as hell n they start drama btw crazy blk b&^%^%’ she tweeted in July 2011.
‘Julie from #BGC gotta nice ass body for a white girl,’ Berry observed in October 2012.
In another tweet she seemed to mock victims of rape, writing in March 2012: ’S/O to all the females that’s gon get drunk, get recked by 4 dudes, then cry **** this weekend’.
‘I’m about to rape my lunch,’ she wrote in a non-sensical tweet from October that year.
As long-time LI readers know, I’m no fan of digging up old tweets to harangue people, but frankly, these aren’t our rules. According to the left, sharing this story is simply holding Berry accountable.
I still do not believe that she should be representing the United States at the Olympics or anywhere else. Berry complains about “#whitepplKids” being “hella disrespectful,” but apparently disrespecting America and the Olympic Games more broadly is “good” disrespect? She can throw her hammers for BLM all she likes, but for our great nation? No, thanks.DONATE
