Meryl Davis On Bella Hadid Nike Backlash: 'It Took On A Life Of Its Own I Didn't Intend'

Meryl Davis looked so beautiful at the 2016 UNICEF Snowflake Ball last night in New York City!

The Olympic ice dancer and Dancing With The Stars champion looked every bit of the ice princess we know she is at the annual event.

While there, Meryl also opened up about the backlash that came after her tweet about the Nike fitness campaign with Bella Hadid.

“It took on a life of its own that I didn’t really intend for it to, which is a reminder for me to definitely think through all the sides of things before I put something out there,” she says.

She adds, “I’m really passionate about making sure that different women are represented in that kind of industry, so my intention is definitely to draw attention to the fact that it’s important to show athletes.”

“It’s important to show women, in all different walks of life, in that kind of imagery,” Meryl continued. “Unfortunately, I don’t think everyone necessarily understood my tweet the way it was intended, but it’s a good lesson for me to learn.”
