Just a few days ago, netizens criticized her for getting into a brawl with a flight attendant. Things went worse for her after that. The incident happened when she was busy recording a video before the takeoff and the attendant asked her to switch off her phone. Upon disagreeing, Richardson started arguing which ended up with her being forced out of the plane.

Hinting at her misconduct, the sprinter recently shared a post on her social media, admitting, “I am mature, yet immature. Sometimes I have good mindset, but sometimes I have toxicity. Just correct me in a RESPECTFUL WAY”. Though she didn’t mention the cause behind her vague plea, it was safe to assume the reasons behind the post.
