As I reported yesterday, hammer thrower Gwen Berry who placed third at the Olympic trials in her event threw a hissy fit when the national anthem was played during her podium ceremony.
Here’s a picture of her snotty reaction to it – she turned her back when it was played. Then held up a black t-shirt saying “activist athlete” and draping it over her head.

Berry then threw a fit, suggesting that they were playing the anthem just to ‘disrespect’ her. “I feel like it was a set-up, and they did it on purpose,” Berry said. “I was pissed, to be honest… The anthem doesn’t speak for me. It never has.”
That prompted people to ask if she has such disrespect for our country, why does she want to compete for America in the Olympics? She made clear she only wants to promote her social justice agenda. In other words, more such displays. Some are reporting her as a BLM activist. So exactly why is the Olympic team sending her to Tokyo? Not to mention, why are you sending someone who’s so warped to think that they played the anthem just to annoy her? That’s twisted and psychologically off.
Berry was doing this for attention, but now she’s upset that it has drawn attention? She posted that tweet above that said “Stop playing with me” and then followed it up with this one, claiming people are obsessed with her.

Press Sec. Jen Psaki says Pres. Biden supports Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry who snubbed the US flag:
“A part of that pride in our country means recognizing there are moments where we as a country haven’t
