Sixth cheerleader sues Houston , claims coach duct-taped her body

A sixth former NFL cheerleader is suing the Houston Texans, claiming that she was repeatedly body-shamed and that her coach duct-taped back her skin without her consent.

Angelina Rosa, accompanied by famed women's rights attorney Gloria Allred, announced on Friday that she was joining a lawsuit against the Houston Texans because her coach often called her "skinny-fat" — a term she said the coach used to describe someone who was thin, but not toned.

On numerous occasions, I was belittled and body-shamed," Rosa said. "The coach explained I looked 'skinny-fat' and I needed to work on this if I wanted to continue dancing in the games."
Rosa said that one day before the cheerleaders went out on the field to perform, her coach told her to stay behind in the locker room, and threatened to cut her from the team.

Before I knew it, Texans logo duct tape was found and I heard, 'This will hurt a bit,' as I watched my skin being pulled stretched and taped," she said.
Feeling "humiliated and ashamed of my own body," Rosa then went out to dance with her teammates. Her skin became sweaty and irritated underneath the tape.
