The guy wrote back and said ‘We would love to but, because of the way our board members view you, you can’t help out.” The incident broke her heart and made her furious. Pouring her heart out she said, “I want to give back to these kids who don’t have anything, because I grew up not having anything, and I can’t even f****** do that because of my cleavage.”She slammed the whole fraternity of golf for making it so elitist and stuffy, espousing conservative ideas from a bygone age. Because of the prevalent hypocrisy in the golf circuit, she believes she will never be able to fit in.
