OMG! Have y'all missed it! Gracie Gold with THE CROWN! THE TIARA! THE I'M CINDERELLA or SLEEPING BEAUTY totally out of touch with reality blonde who thinks she's queen of the skating world!

She dumps the coach who teaches her everything she knows about skating and jumping and winning; and yes, she has HAD YEARS AND YEARS of BALLET and ICE DANCING in Chicago....but THE GIRL JUST CAN'T SKATE! Oh, but she thinks she's the ice queen! And now she can't even jump! She landed only 2 out of 7 triples and gets SECOND! THAT is egregious!

And the CINERERELLA Gracie DIDNT EVEN MEDAL and she hashtags Mao Asada, the gold medalist, with that stupid instagam photo in THE TIARA all while deriding Mao's English! CINDERALLA SLEEPING BEAUTY can't even speak 1 word of another language! There was no fun, playful exchange with Mao and CINDERELLA! She thinks she's Miss Hollywood.....a total narcissist! It's about endorsements and money for CINDERELLA SLEEPING BEAUTY! Hello Disney!

Oh....and "GO FOR THE GOLD!" LOL... right now..she's about 7th or 8th at the Olympics! What a joke.....

Hey Goldilox you sound very jealous. Gracie was making a joke about a private joke between her and Mao. Get over yourself :(

Private jokes arent on instagram. Besides Mao didn't even pronounce it that way in the shibsibs video. And sorry, but we don't wear TIARAs or CROWNS in Chicago after the age of 6. Maybe she didn't get the memo Halloween is over. All TIARA QUEEN ever could do was jump. Everyone knows she skates ON the ice - not IN the ice. Two out of 7 triples. She should be begging Alex to take her back.. hahahahah but she dumped him for Hollywood.#fallfromgrace #goAshley #goAgnes #goChristina #goHannah #goPaulina Now these girls CAN skate!

Gracie gold is as ugly on the inside as her ugly mediocre skating. It was intended as a racist remark and she only claimed it wasn't meant that way after she was caught.
Karma is a bitch and the only place where figure skating is huge in the world now is Asia. Gracie is about as stupid as she is clumsy, and that remark will come back to haunt her. Hope she falls flat on her racist ugly mouth in the US Nationals and hope she fairly to make the US Olympic Team. Gracie is so easy to mock Mao Asada who is a world champion and Olympic silver medalist and one of the few women in history to land a triple axel jump. Gracie's accomplishments? NUTHIN. No national championship, no international titles, just ignorant racist remarks. Tanya Harding all over again. Trailer park to the max!

That is, I hope she fails to make the US Olympic team. Hope all of Asia learns of her racist anti-Asian remarks and that she gets zero endorsements from Asia.

Despite Mao Asada's fall on The Triple Axle ....
Only Woman in the Competition who does a triple axle..
Mao Asada still placed second for Team China.

< It's a new Team Figure Skating Event >.

Team USA didn't even choose Gracie Gold to skate for that event.
Chose Ashley Wagner who placed 4th for Team USA.

Gracie Gold is so full of her self!

And what's up with Gracie Gold's ugly dyed blond hair? She has brown roots showing that are over an inch long, and the hair on her neck is almost all brown. Can't she afford to have a hair stylist give her a proper dye job? Looks like a home dye and highlight job on her hair. Embarrassing!

I don't believe Gracie Gold is a racist, consider that she's a wonderful and beautiful young lady, In the end she apologies for the intended offensive. Hey you gonna to know that she's White. Whites are the Majority of this country.

Who else here finds the absurdity in these negative rants about people who have dedicated their entire lives to be the absolute best at what they do and to live out their dreams? Rants that are written by the uneducated (judged by the poor grammer in use) who have accomplished absolutely NOTHING! What were you doing at 5 am every morning throughout YOUR CHILDHOOD while Gracie and so many others like her were pursuing their dreams? Sleeping! So, go back to sleep now. That's where you will live your dreams. These athletes are very young and will make mistakes. I'm sure she'll learn from her mistakes as well as through her exposure to the mix of cultures found through Olympic competition. She'll grow. Will her critics here ever experience ANYTHING in their lives that will help them understand the world that exists beyond their OWN lives? Her critics seem to be the racists here. One of you hopes she will fall. Another has a problem with her brown roots?? REALLY. Don't spend so much of your time worrying about Gracie. Sounds like you may have some issues being comfortable with yourself.

for china? You guys know nothing about skating. She's Japanese. I wouldn't judge Gracie because I'm sure you can't do half of the things she can.

This is what happens when you spend all your time competing in a useless sport instead of getting an education. What a right stupid cu.t.
