This is the thing about humans, we are cruel and unthoughtful. I know plenty of people are about to be posting about my cousin Danielle Ballard but please have enough respect to keep all the ungenuine comments away. My cousin was a true star before her time. Life comes and alters things either by nature or at the hands of a jealous heart.
My cousin was harmed years ago so this woman so many of yall shared videos of while laughing you are just as ignorant. We are in a city inside a world of hateful phones and we are quick to share the worse visuals to gain the most likes.
Yes, my cousin was mentally ill not by choice but by force, and our world is hateful and would rather throw shame onto a person than help. You will be missed by many and those who truly knew her know she was DAGOAT!!!
