    People are speculating it’s because they posted the Mitch booking info but isn’t that stuff always public? I feel like you can look up anyone’s record nowadays even if it’s years old.

    For this reason, when I started my international program (which you know since you were on it), I ONLY allowed 18+ and college students to be on it. A time or two we needed a last minute fill in, we would grab a Senior aged kid, but my team was warned about cussing, conversations, etc. when we had a minor on the team. Point of the matter...

    Just because the rules grid ALLOW it, doesn't mean gyms can't make their OWN rules that are best for the industry. I did. And I ended up in Top 10 without the help of athletes under 18.

    Yes, if you know what/who you are looking for. It's just disgusting that there is yet another example of them knowing and doing nothing, and I am glad there are places you can be anonymous and post credible information. Even if that means weeding through a bunch of teens figuring out how to cheat in geometry ;)
    That is awesome and I wish everyone had the same mentality. Many (most?) don't. Look around at junior or open teams this year for all the evidence needed...

    Some of the cheer anon accounts are run by Moms (let that sink in!) - there is a good suspicion that cheer confessions is one of them. From what I understand they recently tweeted something completely untrue and used the person's name. My guess is the account was reported and suspended because of it. I would love to see that account (along with some others) get sued for slander but the difficulty in proving that makes it unlikely. That account along with many of the other anon accounts is vile. I don't understand why anyone in the cheer community (my kids are guilty so I'm being somewhat hypocritical but I tell them the same thing) follows, likes or retweets any of them because if they didn't have feedback they would go away.

    I have always been under the suspicion that a lot of the anon accounts where ran by moms or a parent figure in general. The gym that I did allstar at for most of my years, actually ended up kicking one of the girls off one of our worlds team because one of her parents created a “gossip/rumors” anon cheer account. Our gym had a strong policy against doing such things, and if you or even a parent/parental guardian were caught doing such things you were held accountable for your actions. Sadly, a lot of times the actions of how parents would act or talk online would back fire onto the kids. The thing that bothers me the most about this is that a lot of the accounts will say they are taking a stand against bullying but they are doing a lot of cyber bullying themselves.

    Ew. I always just assumed most of the anons were kids because the content and responses were so immature. Including Cheer Confessions. And for that reason I just sort of rolled my eyes at most of it. But if there are actual adults behind those accounts, that’s really disheartening. Not just because of the toxicity and dishonesty, but because it’s all directed at kids doing an after school activity. Eeesh.

    I do think there should be some sort of outlet that posts important updates to the community like the ones we’ve seen over the last week — possibly under the veil of anonymity, if necessary — but not if it’s going to be used to promote a bunch of hatred and lies 99% of the time.

    I haven't been here in forever but none of my friends IRL care about the all-star world. I'm so upset he was one of my favs from the youtube show and he seemed like a nice guy. Can't believe 3 guys from the Narravo team have all been accused of this kind of crime maybe a cultural issue? idk

    Robert was never on the Navarro Cheer team. With that said it's all awful.

    Thanks for clarifying. Buzzfeed reported it as two cheerleaders who appeared on "Cheer" were charged so I assumed he was also on the team. I guess he must have made some other appearance I never watched the show.

    No problem. He appeared briefly when they showed a rebel shoot he did with Gabi.

    I agree that there needs to be more regulation especially when it comes to senior teams and the open divisions.

    And the early college program you described sounds super interesting. I had never heard of a program like that! I had enough credits to graduate early and I desperately wanted out of my high school but my parents said no because I would have been 16 my freshman year of college. I hope your daughter has a great first semester on campus!

    I saw this just now and was immediately reminded me of Cheer Confessions and their treatment of literal kids.

    From the articles I've read it kinda alludes to him being caught up in a sting operation.

    I'm glad this was revealed and he can't harm anymore children.

    It would not surprise me if there is a wave of victims who come out of the woodwork. These abusers start somewhere and it's normally pretty close to "home".
