Jordynne Grace received a lot of flak for her controversial comments in regard to Chris Benoit. The Impact Knockouts World Champion said that Benoit would not be able to hang with many of the best wrestlers of today. Nancy Benoit lost her life in that tragedy, and her sister is still here to speak for her.
Sandra Toffoloni, the sister of Nancy Benoit, took to Twitter on Monday and reacted to Grace’s comments in regard to her slain family. Toffoloni minced no words and expressed how horrid she felt about the whole situation.
It’s weird, I didn’t hear my phone ring. I really thought the work, I’ve been putting in for 15 yrs trying to keep & elevate my sister’s legacy hadn’t gone unnoticed. Guess my family is an afterthought…again. I don’t…I don’t even know where to f*cking start. #heartbroken
To think I broke all the yrs of silence, ignored my personal pain and rage to successfully put EVERY person mentioned in this apology tweet over time & again in the press, doing pr and on my platforms. Why did I think it would be different? F*ckin Groundhogs Day.
Grace later apologized for her comments and said she spoke to Chris Benoit’s son, David Benoit, Chavo Guerrero and Chris Jericho. She is also partnering with David to raise funds for CTE.
