Sha’Carri Richardson took to social media to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support amid her suspension from the Olympic team for failing a drug test.
The 21-year-old U.S. track and field star’s suspension for marijuana use has sparked outrage.
There have been heated debates about everything from the legalization of marijuana to the importance of following rules.
Now, that the dust is starting to settle, Sha’Carri expressed her gratitude to her supporters and had a quick message to her haters.
She also promised she will be a champion again!
The support my community I thank y’all, the negative forget y’all and enjoy the games because we all know it won’t be the same
I’m sorry, I can’t be y’all Olympic Champ this year but I promise I’ll be your World Champ next year
All these perfect people that know how to live life, I’m glad I’m not one of them!
