Simone Biles Blasts Gabby Douglas’ Comments On Twitter
2x Olympian Gabby Douglas is catching some major heat from half of Twitter for some Ayesha Curry-flavored commentary she delivered in response to one of her teammates’ post about a woman’s right to dress sexy if they feel like it.
The trouble all began when fellow Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman — who was actually sexually assaulted by the Olympic team doctor as a minor — posted a note, detailing that the way a woman dresses does not dictate a man’s right to be rude, abusive, or to assault her. For context, Aly has caught flack for her claims of assault years ago after doing a sexy topless Sports Illustrated shoot earlier this year.
Instead of simply supporting her teammate or, maybe…just saying NOTHING if she felt differently, Gabby decided to chime in with her own two cents about women making it their duty to wear turtlenecks and ankle skirts if they don’t want men to treat them like sexual playthings.
In steps Simone Biles, ready with yet another gold-medal dose of shade for Gabby and her shadily unsupportive commentary.
After that — and a few more choice words from the Twitterverse —
Granted, that’s not exactly how the #MeToo hashtag is being used as it relates to this issue right now…but her
damage control heart was in the right place with the apology…
