Mo’ne Davis is as classy as they come.
Last week, Bloomsburg University baseball player, Joey Casselberry wrote a horrifically, offensive comment on Twitter about the 14-year-old Little League World Series star, which led to a dismissal from the baseball team.
“Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada,” the tweet read.
But despite the hurtful comments, Davis actually disagreed with the school’s decision to kick Casselberry off the team. The 14-year-old sent an email to the University’s president, President David L. Soltz suggesting that the player should get a second chance.
“Everyone makes mistakes,” Davis told Sports Center. “Everyone deserves a second chance. I know he didn’t mean it in that type of way. I know people get tired of seeing me on TV. But sometimes you got to think about what you’re doing before you do it.”
She continued, “It hurt on my part, but he hurt even more. If it was me, I would want to take that back. I know how hard he’s worked. Why not give him a second chance?”
Following Davis’ request for Joey’s reinstatement, the University released a statement and explained their decision to “stand firm” on the baller’s dismissal.
“Her request demonstrates the type of person she is, her level of maturity and the empathy that her family and coach teach her,” the statement read, according to ESPN. “Bloomsburg University stands firm on our decision; however, his consequences will be reviewed as is common in disciplinary actions like this.”
