Gail Kim Plans To Address Tessa Blanchard Allegations, But Not In A Tweet

Following Tessa Blanchard's IMPACT World Title win at IMPACT Hard to Kill, she was greeted at the top of the ramp by Gail Kim. Kim and Tessa have battled on-screen, but Tessa has stated she considers Gail a mentor to her backstage. Kim has been a producer for IMPACT since 2018 following her retirement from full-time competition. 

The moment between Kim and Blanchard was subject to criticism online as Kim has been outspoken in the past about WWE and the racism within the company. Tessa was accused of racism on Saturday when it was alleged she spit in the face of La Rosa Negra and called her the N-word. Tessa has denied the allegations.

Kim took to social media to address the backlash stemming from her hug with Tessa. 

Tessa addressed the crowd following Hard to Kill, saying that "nobody is perfect," but never outright mentioning the alleged bullying and racism. La Rosa Negra did an interview touching on the allegation, noting that she doesn't expect an apology and has let the incident go. You can view her full comments by clicking here
