Tessa Blanchard Accused of Bullying & Racism (UPDATE #4)

Tessa Blanchard Accused of Bullying & Racism
Before the biggest matches in her career at Hard to Kill tomorrow night, Tessa Blanchard asked some support and tweeted out: "Hey women, try supporting one another. Cool things happen."

Things took a bit of a turn though when NXT Superstar Chelsea Green responded, "You've consistently put down, bullied, and belittled countless female coworkers, including me. Is that support?"

NWA World Women's Champion Allysin Kay also commented, "Remember when you spat in a black woman's face and called her the N-word in Japan? Was that you "supporting women"? The AUDACITY of this tweet." Green responded to Kay with a .gif that said, "I remember that."

Priscilla Kelly added to the conversation, "Remember publicly putting me down on Twitter last year for something that didn't involve you whatsoever, then continuing to drag my name to other people for it? Pepperidge Farm Remembers. You should probably delete this tweet."

Casey Michael, runner of Squared Circle Sirens, also commented on another incident Blanchard had with Renee Michelle, who has appeared on WWE TV with her husband Drake Maverick, and was involved in the Mae Young Classic.

"She bullied Renee Michelle at an indie show and they had a tussle of some sort. I figured people involved in it would know more details," Michael wrote.

Blanchard has since responded to Green's bully comment, "I've never been anything but kind to u. I've dealt with mean girls since I started...not saying I'm a saint, hell I've had my ups & downs & I've made silly decisions...Such is life. u have ZERO merit in your comments...Instead putting me down here for a little clout...you've got my #!"

UPDATE:

La Rosa Negra has come out to confirm that Allysin Kay’s incident took place in Japan, and Isla Dawn went to Twitter to speak about verbal abuse and bullying.

La Rosa Negra said, "@Sienna & @ImChelseaGreen Thank you so Much!!!!....... That Story!!!!.... Yes, that's happens on Japan 2017!!! If @Tessa_Blanchard do not Remember it ... Can I!.. I am not a Mean Girl with any Coworkers around the world . Be kind of #racist is not ridiculous is a #sickness"

Here is a tweet from Isla Dawn, "As someone who experienced your bullying firsthand, received regular verbal abuse, was spat on, had rumours spread about me, dealt with multiple attempts by you to blacklist me from other companies, (plus more), I just pray you now follow your own advice."

UPDATE 2:

Former Impact star Rebel (Tanea Brooks), AEW's Shanna, and Renee Michelle had more to say about Blanchard's trip to Japan.

"I like to think people change over time. But I can confirm the bad behavior & non supportive attitude in Japan, I was there," Rebel wrote.

"She did more nasty stuff in Japan...Never forget. Practice what you preach sweetheart. I standby @LaAbusadoradePR, she's a fun loving person who would never disrespect anyone. Much love to you Rosa," Shanna commented.

"The day I got the call from my gf La Rosa Negra of the incident-she made me promise to keep my mouth shut because she was afraid of being blacked ball by her. As promised, I did. So I helped her get into Marvelous which is another Japanese promotion," Michelle revealed.

Allysin Kay followed up on why she's telling the story about Blanchard now, saying she was given permission to make it public.

"The reason I've never said anything until now is because it wasn't my story to tell. I made it clear to La Rosa that I had her back, and today was the day she gave me permission. You can't force someone to come forward, but you can be there for them. THAT is 'supporting women.'"

UPDATE 3:

AEW's Big Swole spoke out about these allegations after they came to light. She gave her personal account after speaking to both Black Rose and Tessa Blanchard about this unfortunate incident.

Swole said, "So since we telling stories….Big Swole’s turn. I won’t speak on all the other stories but the one about La Rosa I know personally. This past year at Wrestlecade I spoke to her about this and about hashing it out with Tessa. I’ve spoken to Tessa as well, after talking with La Rosa and I decided it needed to be dealt with.

A conversation needed to happen because this was getting intense over the years. As a black woman this sickened me that this happened to a friend of mine. We have been dealing with this since it happened, it’s just now finding light on social media. People are entitled to deal with this how they want. I just want the world to know the last part of the story."

UPDATE 4:

Impact star Kiera Hogan also took to Twitter to comment about the claims of bullying and racism. Hogan tweeted, "I'm not speaking on any certain situation. I'm not speaking on any singular person. US AS PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN AND GROW. EVERYONE NEEDS TO EVOLVE. Just some words of wisdom is all. Just some advice. Hell, I'm talking to myself too."

Hogan before that replied to a tweet from Diamante. She wrote, "I'm saying though, we are all adults and we all make mistakes. It's our job as humans to learn, grow up and evolve."

Meanwhile, Tessa Blanchard has denied ever spitting in Black Rose's face and calling her the N-word. She had replied to Kay's tweet, "Not true. That's my statement and the most attention I'll give it because of how actually ridiculous it is."
