Former NFL Cheerleader Accuses League of Violating Her Privacy

The NFL’s troubles don’t lie solely between the hash marks these days.

A former NFL cheerleader is accusing the league of invading the girls’ privacy by trying to control every aspect of their lives.

Former cheerleader Bailey Davis, 22, told the host of a Facebook Watch show that the New Orleans Saints were utterly controlling of her life both on and off the field.

She went on to accuse the organization of shaming those girls who gained any weight. It was so bad, she said, that some days she would not eat all day for fear of putting on a few ounces.

“Red flags were popping up in the beginning. We would have weigh-ins every month and everyone was so concerned,” Fox News reported Davis as saying. “You would not eat that day. You would not drink anything because you had to be the weight you were at auditions or you could be benched.”

Davis also said that girls were so frightened of gaining weight they would sweat themselves in their hot cars before going into work. One girl even passed out in a hot car trying to lose a few last ounces.

“There was one practice where a girl sweated herself out in the car and she passed out and had to go to the hospital,” Davis said. “The director told us to get the ambulance to park on the side and no one would know.”

The pay was not very good for all the worry, either.

According to Daily Wire:

Was the slave-driving even for a well-paying job? Apparently not, given that Davis allegedly made only $10 an hour, so it’s a mystery why anyone would take the job. Davis claims that the cheerleaders were also required to keep up appearances at all times, maintaining outrageous beauty requirements out of their own pockets: makeup, nails, spray tans, etc. Broadly notes that the Saints had very strict guidelines on how the cheerleaders were to act in their own private lives.

“Everything was very controlled – even our social media. We couldn’t post semi-nude, nude or lingerie,” she said. “The big one – no fraternization. We couldn’t talk to the football players. We couldn’t follow them on social media. We couldn’t be caught where a football player was. I was told that was the case because they were protecting us. We’re supposed to just kind of hide ourselves and not be known by them.”

Davis noted that she was fired after the team found out she posted a photo of herself in a lacy lingerie outfit that was posted to her protected (not public) Facebook page.

“A day after the photo was posted, Davis said she was asked to resign,” Fox News said.” She said she was confused because she ‘shows more skin on the field.’ Davis said she didn’t resign because she didn’t think she did anything wrong to give her a reason to leave the team.”

Davis also claimed she was given no opportunity to answer to the charges the team filed against her.

The team denied the charges in a statement:

The Saints organization strives to treat all employees fairly, including Ms. Davis,” Leslie A. Lanusse, the team’s lawyer, said in a statement in March. “At the appropriate time and in the appropriate forum, the Saints will defend the organization’s policies and workplace rules. For now, it is sufficient to say that Ms. Davis was not subjected to discrimination because of her gender.

Palestinian Terrorists Blow Up Israeli Teen, & Rashida Tlaib Has the Nerve to Blame ISRAEL

She’s just unreal.

Can the Democrats of Michigan truly feel good about themselves knowing they put an openly anti-Semitic woman in Congress? Maddening. Check out Muslim Democrat Rashida Tlaib’s tweet on Israel upon learning Palestinian terrorists literally blew up an Israeli teenager… From Red State: You may have heard the recent news of a 17 year old Israeli girl being killed by a bomb that was planted by Palestinian terrorists. Her father and brother were also seriously wounded in the attack. This all occurred while they simply out enjoying a family swim. Worse, the bomb had apparently been planted months ago and the terrorists were waiting on the “right” victim to denote it on. That turned out to be a teenage girl because these are the kinds of monsters the Israelis have to deal with on a daily basis. Enter Tlaib: This is absolutely tragic & horrible. My heart goes out to Rina’s family. More than ever we need to support nonviolent approaches to ending the Israeli occupation and guaranteeing equal rights for all. Extremism that puts innocent lives at risk moves us no closer to peace. https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1165067456676847616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1165067456676847616&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbonchie%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Fpalestinian-terrorists-kill-israeli-child-rep.-rashida-tlaib-blames-jews The first thing to note is that she’s retweeting a rabidly anti-Semitic organization that continually blames Israel for all the world’s ills while never standing against Palestinian terrorism. That would be bad enough, but Tlaib goes further. She gives her own awful commentary blaming the “occupation” and the idea that if only Israel gave into the Palestinians, they’d all live in peace and harmony. You see, it’s not the fault of the Palestinian terrorists who killed this girl. It’s Israel’s fault for somehow provoking them by not letting their country be overrun with an Islamism that wants to destroy it. Reactions: This is vile! Have you no shame? How dare you blame the murder of…

AOC Comes Unglued, Says the Electoral College Is ‘Affirmative Action’ for Rural Americans

Come on, man!

Democrats hate the Electoral College because they don’t understand what it’s about. Preventing tyranny of the majority is crucial. New Yorkers and Californians and people from a few other large states shouldn’t get all the say, leaving residents of smaller states feeling as though their voice literally does not matter. Had Hillary Clinton acquired the necessary electorals to win in 2016, Dems would be fighting to see the system remain in place. And yet, here we are. Enter embattled rookie lawmaker, Alexandria O’Commie-Cortez… Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued her verbal assault on the Electoral College, this time smearing the Constitutional system that guarantees big states don’t have undue influence in electing the president as an “electoral affirmative action” scheme for rural Americans. I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college. So let’s talk about it. 1) If the GOP were the “silent majority” they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote. They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164987742842830848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1164987742842830848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Focasio-cortez-electoral-college-is-affirmative-action-for-rural-americans%2F 2) This common claim about “if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency” is BS. a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164988657209507845 3) LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides “fairness” to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural. But very importantly… https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164989849226506240 4) We do not give electoral affirmative action to any other group in America. Do Black Americans have their votes count more bc they have been disenfranchised for 100s of years? Do…
