    It’s discomforting to see our future overlords acting like this.

    Yep. Don’t apologize. It never solves the issue. Just approach it differently next time.

    Silver lining - anything that highlights just how much we love having him in Utah and appreciate him, his mom and his sister is good. Even though it sucks that it happened. . . it’s not home.

    New info on the Donovan's scandal... this is getting WILD... in an unexpected direction:
    Here's a new post on reddit that is saying the whole thing was a conspiracy manufactured by a local businessman who was butthurt by Mitchell not signing a jersey for him:


    And now the thread has been deleted by reddit mods. WTF?

    China rounds up dogs in trucks and take them to places to be killed and prepares them to be eaten by their people. Sounds normal

    Big plot twist here. Apparently that vid was from last year and some Chinese sports businessmen were harassing Mitchell's family for an autograph so they could flip a jersey. He said no, and they put this video out there to ruin his reputation.

    So it apparently all started with one Chinese fan thinking the word "chilling" as the same thing as "ch in k". I mean, just WTF??? I thought they do teach English at schools in China...

    And that crazy Chinese fan was hanging out in the hotel like a paparazzi till 11pm at night just waiting for DM to arrive. And when DM finally does come back to the hotel, that fan starts harassing his mom and sister in the hope of getting his autographs. Just some real creepy **** right there.

    So don't apologize for anything, Donovan. Instead, he and Adidas together need to make an official statement to clear all those false accusations. Those people need to get the rightful punishment that they deserve.

    So the hupu threads slandering Donovan have been deleted and people in the new threads are calling on people to apologize to him. Unfortunately the damage may have already been done, but at least the truth is out there now. The Instagram story is 100% from last year and not from his recent China tour.

    I mentioned earlier in this thread I thought that IG story was from last year. I remember watching it. Anyone to slander Donovan is garbage. Those assholes on his IG called him the N word, said terrible things about his mom..... yeah **** that.

    Rapinoe just acted like a stuck up ..... and shunned a kid fan at the Espy awards tonight who wanted a autograph on a ball she signed it but never even looked at the kid. 45 would never do that because he is real not a phony

    *sigh* Bloody hell. I hope that guy who made it up gets bit in the ********* by a rattlesnake. Several times.

    On a side note, it makes me appreciate Donovan that much more. He's a young man living his life, being the best human he can. The only thing is appreciates his privacy to an extent. I'm also happy Utah gives him that. After the issue with that buttmunch who called out Westbrook and other guy, his response to the whole situation is perfect. I don't pretend to know what it is to deal with racism, but I know it's not easy. But to be the guy he's been, adopt Utah as his home, and make the impact he has? That's a strength of will you don't see much.

    Screw the statue, the guy needs to have a city named after him. I hereby nominate we change South Salt Lake to Mitchellvania.

    What?

    Anyway is it possible that people on the internet are overreacting to something that may be a storm in a tea cup?
