Richardson is currently serving a one month suspension pronounced by the United States Anti-Doping Association after recently testing positive for marijuana. This after she became the star of the sports world for her recent rise and big first place at the Olympic trials last month. The suspension could jeopardize his chances of competing in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.
Wack did not let go of the sprinter regarding her error. “Put her on the first thing while smoking at the dispensary!” ” the west coast based hip-hop manager captioned a photo of Richardson on Instagram on Friday, July 2. “A violation results in punishment. No one is greater than the program. The rules and regulations are there to be followed, not ignored. She has let us down as a people as far as I am concerned!”
Since the news that her drug test was unsuccessful, Richardson has commented on the situation, saying she used marijuana to cope with her mother’s death. “We all have our different struggles, we all have our different things to deal with, but to put on a face and have to come out in front of the world and put on a face and hide my pain,” Richardson said in a video statement Friday morning. ” Who are you ? Who am I to tell you how to cope when you are facing a pain or a struggle that you have never experienced before or that you never thought you would have to face. Who am I to tell you how to cope? Who am I to tell you that you are wrong to hurt?
While Wack appears to be a follower of the rules, people like Super Bowl-winning quarterback Patrick Mahommes, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and even Drake have backed Richardson through social media.
Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Juice Wrld, Pop Smoke and many more have taught us quite a bit along the way.
