Richardson was in Hungary for the World Athletic Championships where she won a gold medal in spectacular fashion in the women’s 100-meter final in record time for the event. She raced past her opponents for a World Athletic Championships best time of 10.65 seconds.
Richardson is shown toward the end of the sprint waving her hand toward the crowd in acknowledgment that she was about to win.
In a video posted to social media alleged that Richardson only spoke with a Black reporter before walking past a group of other members of the media and simply telling them, “No, thank you.”
Many users on social media accounts posted the video accompanied by the following message:
Sha’Carri didn’t stop to talk to ANY of the media, saying, “No, thank you!” She ONLY stopped to talk to these black journalists!
