Gail Kim Hugs Tessa Blanchard After Match
The world of social media can be really harsh and when Superstars turn against one particular figure, often the tide of emotions from the fans reflect this as well. The fans have turned against Tessa Blanchard after accusations were leveled at her for bullying other Superstars as well as for using the N word.
So, when she won the Impact World Championship and was then hugged by Gail Kim after the match, Kim was the one came under criticism from the fans. Footage emerged of Kim hugging Tessa following the win at the Hard to Kill pay-per-view and demanded that she answer for her actions and apparently siding with Tessa.
Gail Kim has always been an open critic of racism and has spoken out against WWE for the same reason. Kim took to social media after the backlash leveled against her and said that she would answer things, but it would not be in the form of a tweet. She went on to say that those who were demanding answers from her as if she owed them anything and making presumptions about her at the same time, were not the people that she would be responding to.
“I will address things but not in a tweet and also, the ‘demanding of answers’ from people who think they are owed that or come negatively and aggressively making presumptions…that is not what I will respond to.”
