The tweet received mixed results from followers, with some taking Sha’Carri’s tweet as being arrogant and not humble. Some also took it as she was throwing shade at some of the other participants in the Olympics. Sha’Carri fired back at all those who had something to say and advised them to unfollow her page if they had a problem with her tweets.

Despite the backlash, it was later announced that Sha’Carri would be given her chance to return to the track on August 21st at the Nike Prefontaine Classic at the University of Oregon. This would be her first race since being disqualified from the Olympics. Days before the race, Sha’Carri posted a video on Instagram with Nicki Minaj playing in the background and making it clear that she wasn’t coming to play no games. She captioned the video: “August 21 and I’m not playing nice.”
If you don’t like what I tweet you can definitely unfollow me. If you choose to think of all my tweets as petty and shady then you should unfollow me showing your own character but don’t use my tweets to do it ???have a day. https://t.co/3BBgy9mkjA — Sha’Carri Richardson (@itskerrii) July 30, 2021
However, Sha’Carri’s return to the field didn’t go nearly as she or fans expected. On Saturday (Aug. 21) the track star came in last place in the 100-meter dash race against 8 other competitors, including three of the Jamaican sprinters who won gold, silver and bronze during the Olympics. Footage showed Sha’Carri trailing behind the other sprinters throughout the entire race. Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson-Herah ended up taking first place in the competition. Following the race, Sha’Carri spoke to NBC and stated that she wasn’t upset about falling short in the race and that she is far from done.
“Having a month off. Dealing with all I was dealing with. I’m not upset at myself at all,” she said during the post-race interview. “This is one race. I’m not done. You know what I’m capable of. Count me out if you want to. Talk all the sh*t that you want cause I’m here to stay. “I’m the sixth fastest woman in this game ever. And can’t nobody ever take that away from me. Congratulations to the winners, but they not done seeing me yet.” Of course, Twitter has been roasting Sha’Carri to shreds about getting smoked in the race and for being overly confident and not getting the job done.

Hopefully she will get them next time. But right now, it looks like it’s time for Sha’carri to have a nice slice of humble pie. Sha’Carri Richardson Roasted on the Internet After Coming in Last Place in Prefontaine Classic Race is a post from: Gossip On This - Pop Culture, News & Videos
