  1. Ozzel Williams said the splits were OPTIONAL and they would had to do it for the full 30 seconds if they chose to also he was stablizing the girl

  2. I wish that coach was dead was dead his mama's so fat that his head so fat that every time when you go to the barbershop he got his head

  3. I'm flexible and can do cartwheels and all that stuff, the only thing stopping me from cheerleading, is my mom, I stretched everyday for the past 3 years for nothing. I wanted to join cheer since I was in 3rd grade..

  4. They don't get it he said be in the same position for 15 seconds and losing to jobs it be white people these days the white lady was just a racist I bet it didn't even hurt

  5. That's not at all how you get someone to get their splits flat on the floor. They have already learned how to do splits to some point, or they would not be as far down in splits as they are. There are variety of ways of getting sits flat on the floor, or teaching someone to get splits flat on the floor, but this is not one of them. And even if they did get splits on the floor this way, in time to come, they are going to hate cheerleading and gymnastics, not want to continue it.

  6. He deserves it no offense you did something wrong and that's what happens please don't hate on me because just because I have a different opinion thank you

  7. I don't think the coach did anything wrong. I did my research and all the girls had a choice and they didn't have to do it. They knew all the risks and the coach didn't do anything wrong. People just overreacted to this. I blame it on the girls because they didn't have to do it but did it anyway.

  8. HE WAS NOT PUSHING HER if you look closely he is supporting her putting her in the correct position she wasn’t being pushed down it was her body weigh forcing her into the split either that or the other students but I know that teacher was not pushing her

  9. If this was done to me I would seriously backhand slap them across the face, leave, share the video on every form of social media, and quit whatever I’m doing. (I sound harsh but ain’t nobody wanna suffer this it hurts enough doing the splits by myself😂)

  10. They should really make this guy pay, this is bullshit, you can't treat kida like this,training or not. It's just not acceptable

  11. Omg he’s supporting her! He’s not even pushing the girls!!!! He’s supporting her not pushinggggggggggg and he has a video of the girl literally doing cartwheel two days later

  12. Flexibility comes SLOWLY!!!! It comes from stretching over and over. This IS NOT how you develop flexibility, this is how you tear muscles. What a dumbass!!!!

  13. There are ways to do this without pain. Takes time but the body learns the flexibility. The body needs to be educated. It can't be forced like this.

  14. Honestly, both the coach and the students helping him should be ashamed! She is clearly in a lot of pain and screaming. Use your damned common sense. There is never an excuse for hurting another human being. If you think there is, check your morals. Your recklessness could seriously hurt someone.

    For those that say this is a good exercise, I honestly don’t know what to say to you. This will, in case you haven’t noticed, _tear your muscles_. Just because it worked for you (the very small few) doesn’t make it okay for the majority.

    ”…torn ligaments and torn hamstrings…” That’s not okay. I started to cry at that part. She was crying and asking them to stop. Literally screaming. That is just pure evil.

    That’s literal torture: “The action or practice or inflicting severe pain on someone as punishment, or force them to do or say something, or for the pleasure of the person inflicting the pain.”

    Forcing. He literally (along with some other students) forced those other girls against their will to do something that is very clearly causing them pain.

  15. I know the coach was wrong but I think he knew what he was doing. He could have just did it in and easier way to the point where it wouldn't hurt the kids.

  16. So rude I hate people like that there never going to want to stretch again and how could those girls do that to there friends so mean😠

  17. Love how he makes a stupid ass mistake and instead of accepting accountability he pulled the race card. Nice.

  18. It's A Way To Push Past Your Limits. My Brother Who Is A Dancer Says That His Teacher Forces Him To Bend His Leg Until It Cracks His Pelvic Bone(s). The Way The News Reporter Said "Don't Share These Videos With Anyone" Made Me A Little Angry

  19. OML
    WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT TO THAT BLONDE GIRL
    YOU NEED TO GET READY TO DO IT NOT LIKE FORCE THEM TO DO T AND YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO DO IT BEFORE DOING IT

  20. My past coach used to push us into our splits, but nothing like this. It was just a short 10 seconds, and she would ask us to tell her if it hurt too much.

  21. I saw another video about this where he explained everything and the comments are very opposite of what these ones are😂

  22. This is how you stretch. If it doesn’t hurt when you stretch you aren’t getting anywhere. This is so stupid. I would cry and scream but when I did high kicks perfect and straight legs were amazing it was worth it. No pain no gain

  23. For those dumbasses saying “he is abusing her” he is fucking supporting her not pushing her down to forcefully make her do splits.

  24. Those girls over reacted! If you seen the coach’s side of the story the girls did a similar position earlier and to be on a CHEERLEADING TEAM you obviously need to know how to do the spilts. Common sense, people. Common sense. 🤦‍♀️

  25. Why TF was someone recording???? That's the REAL question. They should've helped, that coach is an ASSHOLE.

  26. Her leg is on the floor and there is a gap in between her hips and that floor. He's pulling her up and back to lessen the pressure in her hip flexors so the tendons won't snap. So the injuries she sustained were past injuries. I'm a dancer and this isn't painful or should be. It's the same as doing over splits or box spilts. Pss. I'm not flexible.

  27. You are educating people now a days for being so fucking pussies … you can't make a little effort and deal with effort pain because you just feel that hard training is indignating and cruel if they are Cheerleaders is because they are supposed to know that training is not easy and as gymnastic girls the rutine usually is painful ……. DONT BE FUCKING PUSSIES IT IS NOT CRUEL , IT IS SOMETHING CALLED EFFORT AND DISCIPLINE

  28. Video or no, he learned that technique somewhere. They knew what was going on. Like they never walked into his class. Sure u didn’t know until u saw the video. Ok

  29. I told my friend to push me down until I do it. I asked her and she didnt want to but I told her to unlike this one

  30. So stupid girl first of all it was a camp and it was optional to do the splits so if you can strength or do the splits don’t sign up also you can clearly tell he’s not pushing her he’s keeping her up.🙄🙄🙄

  31. I think you guys are failing to see the situation. It's like signing up for boxing and crying when you get punched.

  32. Yeah, you guys should watch the inside edition video. The coach gives more insight and proof to show that girl was not hurt. Seriously, you guys in the comments need to do more research smh.
