She continued, “My attempt for her to understand the severity of her caption has been dismissed. That request was not honored, and I have been upset ever since. It wasn’t then, nor has it ever been a reflection of my own value system. I am grateful to not be associated with her anymore. Our personalities and hearts are not the same. ”
