    It's just a bad joke, but she made it worse by explaining herself, "sorry it's people are offended" "sorry you feel that way"
    Not a smart girl, but she can jump.

    Catching up on the GG controversy and IMO the Devil made her do it. Before I get flamed let me
    apologize to any devil worshipers in this thread. (jk)

    On a serious note I feel bad for Gracie because I truly believe there was no ill intention at all on her part.

    BTW this thread is hilarious.

    Geez... I have only been gone for a few hours and this is the most active thread? Lol... maybe congratulations are in order. Gracie managed to evoke more emotions in a tweet about a sandwich than 3 seasons worth of skating programs.

    There's a lesson in that... (though I am still trying to figure out just what.)

    About half this thread was more about a pissing match about intelligence or lack thereof than it was about Gracie. Probably even more than that.

    I hope Gracie is not afraid of using twitter again, with the little media attention that figure skating get lately it is great that skaters can communicate theirs opinions, news and photos on twitter, in fact the only Mao`s picture of the banquet I have seen is precisly the photo that Gracie posted . And I hope the others figure skaters found out abut this and learn to be careful too.

    1--That would be a report card, not a transcript.
    2--Why were you looking at it?
    3--Trust me as a former high school teacher, I can tell you that the ability to get A's and the ability to use common sense when opening your mouth or posting on social media are not always interrelated. Teenagers frequently act impulsively, both A students and D students, and do and say stupid things.

    I've been a member of this board for over a decade, hating on the youth of the world is common... and folks wonder why younger people aren't more into figure skating. we aren't allowed to.

    Haven't read this thread, why bother? But it does say something if this is the it thread right now. She is just a kid, no harm meant. She loves Mao. Mao probably laughed and wonders why the fuss. Much ado about nothing. We obviously need some interesting threads.

    Better to be young and foolish than old and bitter. Right?

    And it looks like in Japan it was not important, I didn`t hear about some article in reference at this issue in Japan and we all know the famous that fs is in there, unlike when Yu-Na said Japanese skaters was obstructing her for example

    All can be forgiven if, during her next program, Julia draws a "GG" within the heart, and pulls through, to reach those who have sinned or regressed, that she can heal those souls by pulling away their transgressions and putting the burden upon herself.
    You can do it Julia, you are the one...
