This story got a lot of attention (and rightly so) in the past week. Here’s some of what Yahoo News wrote:
“Controversy (…) brews after a mom says her daughter was ultimately kicked off the Maryland Twisters cheerleading team, and it all started because of her child’s hair.

“The first thing our coach says to us is ‘she can’t wear her hair like that,'” said her mom(…) the team gave members two hair options for competition. Woolridge decided to opt for the half up half down hairstyle for her daughter, a style she’s done before in past cheer seasons, but this was an issue for one of the coaches at this competition.

Ultimately the conversation between Woolridge with management ended with her daughter being kicked off the team.

“Our values simply do not align. It’s best for both parties that you no longer continue at the Maryland Twisters program,” the email stated.”
Here’s a link to the full article.

The gym first released the following statement, and this email was later sent to gym members explaining more and that the coach is no longer part of the program.
