More about Navarro’s cheer blackface scandal

The drama reportedly began on 13th December 2022 after Gabi Butler was accused of doing blackface. It is said that the incident happened when she was a rookie teammate in the cheerleading squad.

It is alleged that the senior Navarro College cheer squad members ordered their juniors to dress in all-black clothing before leaving from a Daytona, Florida cheer competition.

In addition, it is reported that juniors were also demanded to paint their faces black supposedly for an initiation ritual that will be held at an off-campus gym.

However, Butler claimed that she participated in the initiation because she did not want seniors to have a bad impression of her. Moreover, she added that people of color also took part in the ritual.

Meanwhile, La’Darius Marshall clapped back at Butler’s statement at that time. He claimed that ‘minorities spoke out against this’ and he told her that ‘it was not a good idea.’

Marshall recently revealed that cheerleaders at Navarro were forced to walk on a rainy sidewalk while wearing white t-shirts on their heads. 

Furthermore, he stated on TikTok that the hazing began in July 2017 and Butler took part in blackface in 2018.

Butler on the other hand took to Instagram to address Marshall’s accusations. She went on to insult him in a live stream and suggested that the former cheerleader did not reveal the complete truth about the incident.

She said on Instagram live, ‘I’m not going to come for you because I’m classier than that.’
