Nooooo one drives to Gastonia Based on lies of Gastonia Like they couldn’t just find out the height of Gastonia…? It really does have some good seafood places! Truck stops and more- That’s Gastonia!!!

Well she’s from Florida… Haha, Tik Too is also a liar den even outside the Big country. 🤣 Her fault for being stupid. Also shame on her for insulting the town like this.

By now everyone should know how the media works. If you fall for it you are only tricking yourself.

Well... At least Florida Girl stories involve less injuries than Florida Man stories
