Saturday, March 27, 2021

Former UFC superstar Ronda Rousey was suddenly trending on Twitter in the United States on Friday, and it wasn't because she's making a UFC comeback. Instead, Rousey's name was trending on social media after news broke that the 34-year-old Rousey's great-grandfather was Dr. Alfred Waddell, one of the first Black physicians in North America. While that isn't exactly a new revelation (reports about Rousey's heritage have been around since at least 2016), many people on the internet were just finding out about Rousey's heritage for the first time. There are all sorts of reactions on Twitter about the matter, so Heavy compiled the best ones for you to enjoy below.
