    What's happening:

    I believe they both quit?

    LaDarius was very public on IG about his feelings re: Monica not making a statement re: Black lives and police brutality. He was super critical of them on live. He then stated that he won't support a program that was silent on this issue (because the program did gain attention based on a show that highlighted them as Black men in the cheer world.)

    Retired From Cheer
    I saw his initial tweets going around about how disappointed he was that no one reached out to him from the team and that is what I was commenting on. I did not see that he had actually left. I dont blame him, as I said above I cant imagine how used he must feel on top of everything else he must be going through as a BIPOC. My heart goes out to him and Jerry.

    They were my favorite people on the team. They carried it. I'm sad they left, but I completely understand and support them. Thd5 team and coaches failed them.

    Cheer got six Emmy nominations!

    Gabi Butler is turning out to be very career-savvy. It seems like she always knows which projects to choose.

    As pushy as her parents are, I will give them that they have raised a very media-savvy person.

    If you want to take your Cheer Fame and turn it into $$$, you can't just be cheer savvy. You have to be career-savvy with knowledgeable folks behind you. There is a reason you see the Navarro kids from Cheer being super choosy about what they participate in, what they attach themselves to, and even what they say/post on the interwebz. (Ex: No one saying "omg Jerry said ____.")

    They are taking their personal brands seriously. (So are their agents, parents, etc.) Ex: Jerry and Morgan doing commercials.

    As much money as the University setting typically makes off of athletics, I hope they cash in on this and ride the wave as far as they can.
