If she wants to make fun of 300lbs kids, who gives a ****. Fat shaming works for most people. Every time someone tells me I’m gaining weight, I cut down.

Anyone have the tik tok?
I mean, why have a mentality of spreading hate and responding with more hate. Your type of mentality is exactly why people in this country are more concerned with being right and spreading their agenda by any means, more than just being a good person and minding your business.

You have to wonder that when she thought " I should make fun of a sick child, people will love that!" why she actually thought it was a good idea.

I am however, a bit underwhelmed by the US Team response, they seem to deflect quite a bit and the statement is almost quasi-defensive of her position.
People who are dumb enough to publicly make fun of a dying child, probably have some sort of personality/mental disorder. Maybe Cluster B, aspergers, narcissism etc. I checked her Ig, looks like she delet d her posts and went private.

Another concern though, is that a couple social media users actually went out of their way and contacted all of the sponsors and pretty much everyone she is associated with. Again, that’s cancel culture for you. Regardless of what you did or said, you should never apologize to these people. You can’t cancel someone who doesn’t give a ****. In fact, if you get canceled, the best thing to do is double down! Better to die on your feet, then on your knees!
But she's an adult. It's weird that you're so obsessed with the people that go after her. She should know that if you publicly post horrific statements, everyone will find out.

She's on a team that calls itself "Team USA." So if you're purporting to represent a country, you should be a good ambassador for the sport, or at least not be a stain on the sport.

She put her foot in her mouth. Who hasn't done that before?

I think the over response is as bad as the offense. Contacting a person's sponsors over a tasteless comment is a bit extreme.

Poor Nick tried to engage with this girl and got fart noises in response.

I'd be fine if both of them were hit by a bus walking across the street. The world would probably be a better place.

foot in mouth is when you say something by accident that embarrasses or upsets someone.
For example, Jane put her foot in her mouth when she called him by her first husband's name.

Jane did not put her foot in her mouth when she told a sick kid to find a treadmill. Jane was just being trashcan human.

Don't be like Jane.

You need help, then. Mocking a child dying of COVID isn't just as bad as losing sponsors from a sport you play as a hobby on the weekends, get a grip man.

Besides that obviously being a stupid *** thing to post and say, it's extremely unfortunate that this will be many young people's first introduction to the existence of tournament paintball. I mean 825k likes and counting on the most popular social platform right now. Christ. What a disaster

Looks/sounds like she was trying to pose the argument that physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle are important factors for resiliency against COVID. The only video I could find was the re-posted response from someone else so it was hard to determine the context of the conversation.

That said, she obviously screwed up big time with that statement which was untactful, insensitive, and ignorant. She is a spokesperson for the sport and with that comes a high level of scrutiny and accountability for one's statements.

Silver-lining in the story, I was glad to see that the child has recovered.

Probably not the press the game needs: https://nypost.com/2021/08/09/pro-pa...s-a-treadmill/

Or maybe it is

People get cancelled for saying the truth, not for lying. It reminds me of that big mean orange man we had as a president. It wasn’t his lies that riled everyone up, it was the things he said that were true. I think the data showed that around 80-90% of all covid hospitalizations and deaths have been with people who were legally “obese”, not just 20 or 30 pounds overweight.

This may explain why everyone was so nervous when said orange man got the 'vid.

Also, maybe I'm just being ageist, but the person who spoke the inflaming comments is 31 years old. Is 31 not old enough to know better?

Now that was a good laugh to start my morning. I'm pretty certain there were a *few* big lies that did indeed get a lot of people riled up.

43% of america is obese and 78% of the people in icu with covid are overweight.

If you are overweight and unhealthy, there is a strong argument that allowing yourself to have those risk factors can get you killed a lot easier than the vaccines that don't always work.

Heart disease is still the leading cause of death in America and again, this is mostly overweight people or those with poor diets.

So let's be honest in our assessment here, while her delivery was poor, her message was rooted in truth.
Well said. Extremely poor judgement/delivery on that message though. People on both sides get so emotionally charged by these things that crazy stuff comes out of their mouth.

The SJW seems pretty crazy as well. Going so far as to be spying on the person afterwards? She seems fully dedicated to not only going after the player, but the community at large. Pretty aggressive stuff. People need to simmer down.

Check this out... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-8S2v3n-Pg
Found that ladies Instagram. Can you imagine being an adult and you’re mission is to publicly doxx anyone who disagrees with your beliefs? I’m feeling really tempted to engage with her right now, and I would absolutely eat this woman alive to a point where she’d have nightmares at night. I’d love to talk to her about masks, vaccines etc. She just posts everyone’s address’s, full names, where they work etc. like they were showing in that video. Sounds like she grew up in a single mother household.

Being a huge youtuber doesn't mean you have anything worthwhile to say. The Rock is a big movie star, I don't really care what he thinks about much of anything except maybe weightlifting.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
