‘Astros mean girl’ apologizes for mocking Jackie La Bonita in viral TikTok after backlash
Litzareli Madrigal, one of the dubbed Astros’ mean girls, has apologized after making fun of Jackie La Bonita for taking photos at a recent game as the video went super viral.
On April 22, TikTok user Jackie La Bonita has the internet rallying around her after she uploaded a clip of herself taking photos while at a Houston Astros baseball game. It even got to the point where celebrities like Cardi B stepped in to defend Jackie.

These two women were quickly dubbed the ‘Astros mean girls’, referencing the classic 2004 movie, after Jackie used the Mean Girls hashtag on her clip.
While the TikToker turned off the comments on her super viral clip, plenty of social media users tried to out the two girls anyway. Now, one of them – Litzareli Madrigal – has apologized for her actions.
