“At the party yesterday, she started with the same energy throwing words at me , calling me names and being disrespectful”
“Initially I kept calm, didn’t respond to her ,people around her appealed for her to stop, yet Lara wouldn’t stop. And so I decided to retaliate and responded with the same energy.
