'Woke' Gwen Berry's History of Violent, Racist Remarks Emerges in Old Tweets
Olympic athlete said she would 'stomp' a 'lil white boy,' mocked Mexicans, Asians, rape
Gwen Berry, the "woke" Team USA Olympic hammer thrower who protested the American national anthem last week, has a history of racist, violent, and disturbing remarks, newly unearthed tweets have revealed.
Berry, who is heading to Tokyo this summer to represent the country she hates, came under new scrutiny this week after internet users unearthed problematic tweets.
The posts from Berry involve racist comments about Mexicans and Asians, making violent remarks about wanting to "stomp" a "lil white boy," and posting "jokes" about rape.
"Activist athlete" Berry made headlines last weekend after she turned her back in protest during the playing of the national anthem at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials.
Berry qualified for her second Olympic games after finishing third in the hammer throwing competition.
"I feel like it was a setup, and they did it on purpose,'' Berry later said of the timing of the anthem. "I was pissed, to be honest."
"They said they were going to play it before we walked out, then they played it when we were out there," she added.
"But I don't really want to talk about the anthem because that's not important.
"The anthem doesn't speak for me. It never has."
Despite criticism, including demands from some Republican lawmakers that she be removed from Team USA, Berry said she will represent America in Tokyo.
"I never said that I didn't want to go to the Olympic Games, that's why I competed and got third and made the team," she said on the Black News Channel.
The majority of the tweets were published in 2011, while just a few were posted in 2012, according to The Blaze.
In one tweet from March 2012, Berry said, "[Shout out] to all the females that's gon get drunk, get recked by 4 dudes, then cry rape this weekend."
In another from 2012, she said, "I'm about to rape my lunch."
Numerous tweets targeted white people.
"White people are sooo retarded when they are drunk," she said in 2011.
"This lil white boy being bad as hell!!" she wrote in June 2011.
"I would smack his ass then stomp him!! Smh #whitepplKids hella disrespectful."
Berry also targeted Mexicans and Chinese people.
"Mexicans just don't care about ppl," a tweet posted to Berry's account in 2012 said.
"Just saw this gurl wearing heels with white socks!! What the Hell..#chineseppl always try to start new trends..smh..ggguuurrrllll," Berry said in 2011.
As the New York Post noted, Berry has deleted some of the problematic tweets after they were uncovered.
Berry responded Saturday by brushing aside the newest criticism, and, for some reason, invoking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh
"Is that the best THEY could come up with?" she said.
"I'll just say I can relate to the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the USA Brett Kavanaugh and agree, there's a lot of s**t I don't do like I did when I was 18 or 20."
