"I know you are at peace, but allow me to vent as your mom. I will protect you until the day I die!"
The mammy of Californian Griffin Colapinto, the kid who belted Brazilian Filipe Toledo for the second time in a final three days ago, has raised hell after Latin surf fans claimed the game was fixed in the gringo’s favour.
(If you’re coming in late, read, Brazilian surf fans apoplectic following Californian Griffin Colapinto’s “shock” win over world title favourite Filipe Toledo, “World Shame League! This event was a joke!” and Latin surf fans vow to create chaos at next World Tour event in Brazil following Filipe Toledos controversial loss to Californian in El Salvador, “The biggest protest in history in Saquarema! Bring banners, balloons, planes, boo all the time! Make them leave due to emotional stress!”)
Griff’s mama Camille, a nurse at a plastic surgery joint in Newport, wrote on her lil man’s IG,
“Momma bear is on 🔥. I’ve been sitting on my hands for two days and I’m still angry. I don’t care if people think you got overscored! Whatever, it’s a surf contest. It’s meant to entertain. But the threats to the judges’ well being, to you, to other members of @wsl that should not be tolerated. And for others in top positions to post and add fuel to the fire, well that’s just irresponsible. Can we remember how blessed these surfers are please? Look around. There is a war, homelessness, people:children starving, and your win is motivating people to take to the streets? Are we living in the same universe? Wow! Unbelievable. And @griffin_cola I know you are at peace, but allow me to vent as your mom. I will protect you until the day I die! Even if I need a walker and a cane and even if you don’t need mom backup . Anyway, I’m making a point! Terrible things still happen I’m this world (I mean, watch a Dateline Episode, for F sake). And an outcome in a surf contest where the top guys still make good money is upsetting the masses? I have no words,,,,I actually have lots of words but your dad and brother and nana have front row to my rants.”

“Griffin… of course you are not to blame for what is happening with the Wsl judgment… We really hope that something will be done, and that this will change, as it is becoming unbearable to see and hear the things we are hearing. during the events, I am embarrassed for the others… @filipetoledo , you have shown yourself to be a true soldier in the war, defending your homeland, where we clearly see that, you are targeted and keep moving forward! WHAT A WARRIOR!!! my congratulations son, the world is proud of you, who despite everything, has been a true “gentleman”, always responding with great ethics, respect and wisdom. So proud of the human being who has shown himself to be a true champion! And you know it…🤷♂️ “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch upon the evil and the good.”proverbs 15:3”
