Hey everybody, just want to say I will be taking a break from social media. If I post it will be from my management team for me. I’m too involved with it, and to read some of the hurtful things being said to me lately isn’t fair and I’m not dealing with it. Thank you to my true fans out there I will be back on but I’m going to be focusing on me right now and my life. Thanks for understanding.
Instagram Post by LPGA star Lexi Thompson
Sorry, but I don’t understand.
Lexi Thompson posted this statement on Instagram after getting negative feedback on social media for spending the Easter weekend golfing with blatant racist Donald Trump and right-wing pundit Rush Limbaugh.
Many politicians and diplomats meet with Trump even though they deplore his racist statements and policies because their occupation makes it necessary and unavoidable that they interact with him.
It’s a horse of a different color when a prominent person socializes with the racist buffoon. Thompson didn’t golf with Trump because he’s such a great golfer, she thought that the publicity would improve her brand, and she probably doesn’t mind his racist inclinations.
Thompson must have figured that most golfers are conservatives and they would be envious if anything, for golfing with the Leader of the Free World. The backlash from social media caught her be surprise, and so she’s taking a timeout from the virtual world.
To which I say: What a freaking coward! If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, or in this case the Internet, on a permanent basis. If I get criticized for bashing Lexi, believe me, I’m not going to take a break from social media. Bring it on!
Lexi’s Twitter feed is filled with posts promoting products and services, contact her sponsors and let them know what you think about this cowardly golfer who enjoys socializing with racists.
