Fans Have Mixed Reactions After Gabby Douglas Apology & Admission of Abuse From Larry Nassar

Earlier today, Gabby Douglas issued anotehr statement where she revealed that she too was a victim of Dr. Larry Nassar‘s advances while on the US Women’s Gymnastics team.

Her statement also addresses her response to Aly Raisman‘s stance on victim shaming over the past weekend — and it has some fans confused on Gabby‘s actual stance on it at all.

“I’m sorry how is Gabby Douglas going to put her team mate on blast about sexual assault. Today I read an on baller alert saying that she was also sexually assaulted as by a doctor. #hypocrite,” one user writes.

Another added, “The backlash against Gabby Douglas tweet shows how far feminism has brainwashed women. Women don’t even understand the value of self respect any more.”

Gabby Douglas Issues Another Apology After Her Victim Blaming Tweets Went Viral

Gabby Douglas Issues Another Apology After Her Victim Blaming Tweets Went Viral

Gabby Douglas has taken to Instagram for another apology and statement following her response to Aly Raisman‘s stance on victim shaming over the past weekend.

The gymnast writes, “First, i want to reiterate my apology for responding the way that I did to a comment that one of my teammates posted. I know some of you may take what I am about to say as insincere, but I still wanted to provide context.”

“The day before I commented, I was at an event where hundreds of children and young adults came to spend an evening with me. It’s very humbling when many people look up to you as an example. I take my job as a role model very seriously and I always want to do my best to represent all the best qualities that a role model should embody. I admit there are times that I fall short.”

“I didn’t view my comments as victim shaming because I know that no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you. It would be like saying that because of the leotards we wore, it was our fault that we were abused by Larry Nassar. I didn’t publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years were were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some thing were extremely painful. I wholeheartedly support my teammates for coming forward with what happened to them.”

Gabby goes on to state that she does not advocate victim shaming in any way and feels responsible for her actions.

Fans Are Disappointed in Gabby Douglas For Her Response To Aly Raisman's Victim Blaming Tweet

Fans Are Disappointed in Gabby Douglas For Her Response To Aly Raisman's Victim Blaming Tweet

Aly Raisman has been opening up about her experience of being sexually assaulted by former Olympic gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar for a few weeks.

Since sharing her story, Aly is determined to erase victim blaming altogether.

“Just because a women does a sext photoshoot or wears a sexy outfit, does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe he when she comes forward about sexual abuse. What is wrong with some of you?” Aly wrote in a tweet this morning.

Former Olympic teammate Gabby Douglas saw it, and responded in an unexpected way.

Obviously, her fans are disappointed. We’re disappointed. Gabby has since deleted her tweet, but as we all know, nothing is totally gone from the internet.

She tried to explain herself, however, that didn’t go well either.

After her response, Gabby‘s fans (or, now former fans) are teaching her a lesson about what victim blaming and shaming is on the social media network.

“You really should read up on rape and how no matter what you wear, your clothes have nothing to do with being raped. Your comment was heartbreaking, uneducated and misinformed. You owe victims an apology,” one fan responded to her.

Another added, “Sexual assault/abuse isn’t about what you wear. It’s about power. Someone could be head to toe covered and still be assaulted. I strongly encourage you to evaluate what you’re saying and how it can affect others, especially many young women who have looked up to you.”

Simone Biles was even shocked by her response.
