• Tessa Blanchard Issues Statement Regarding Claims Of Her Using The N-Word
Impact World Champion Tessa Blanchard was recently accused of being racist and using the N-word.
Tessa has now issued a statement regarding this and you can read it below:
“Over the last week I have been accused of calling a fellow wrestler a racial slur. To read this allegation has been personally upsetting.
To be clear, I absolutely did not use that word. That word is not in my vocabulary. That word is not in my heart. Racism is not in my heart.
Yet I know many people have to deal with racism in a way I will never have to. Racism is an awful part of American history, and it is equally awful that it’s still part of our society today.
While I did not do what was claimed, I stand ready to use my platform to support the fight against racism however I can.”
I hope everyone will take a moment to read this. pic.twitter.com/gRPUlCYd6a
