Today has been a very long day. My surgery went well. My jaw is currently wired shut so please refrain from calling me as of right now and bare with me on replies because my phone hasn’t stopped blowing up. Everyone’s love & kind words have not gone unnoticed whatsoever and it means so much to me that all of you have blessed me and uplifted me in so many ways. I am overwhelmed in the best way by all the support. I was really nervous as this all started blowing up because people are cruel and this is a very sensitive time for me. But I never imagined so many people would stand behind me in a situation like this and that has outweighed all the negativity by far. I am beyond grateful for you all. I am in a tremendous amount of pain but i am ready for this road to recovery so I can get back to my life. I will continue to update everyone over the course of my recovery but thank you once again for EVERYTHING 🙏🏽
Genea wrote that her jaw was wired and the fact that she never imagined so many people would stand behind her in a situation “like this”. She expressed her gratitude for everyone who extended support.
The CEO of RCI Hospitality Holdings Inc., which owns the club, told news portal TMZ that they are in no way responsible for the incident and they didn't ask her to make the climb.
Eric Langan, the CEO, added that the club was looking into helping Genea financially. A Gofundme account has also been opened up for her medical expenses.
The account has already garnered $34,689, when the goal was only $20,000.
