*Mo’ne Davis is truly a class act.
The 14-year-old little league pitcher, who was disrespected in a tweet from Bloomsburg University baseball player Joey Casselberry, has forgiven Casselberry and has reached out to the school to reinstate him, TMZ.com reports.
Casselberry generated headlines after he received the boot from Bloomsburg this past weekend after posting the following tweet:
“Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada.”
A rep from the university told TMZ that its president David L. Soltz received an email from Davis and her coach requesting that Bloomsburg reconsider Casselberry’s dismissal from his team, which stated Casselberry violated the social media policy of Bloomsburg’s athletic department and possibly the school’s code of conduct.
Casselberry has since apologized for his tweet and mentioned that he’s a huge fan of Davis.
Although they praised Davis for being incredibly mature about the situation and voiced how much they respect Davis’ opinion, Bloomsburg mentioned that it would not reinstate Casselberry.
“Right now we’re standing firm,” the school stated.
In an interview with ESPN, Davis revealed her reason behind forgiving Casselberry, saying, “I know right now he’s really hurt … everyone deserves a second chance.”
