Gabby Douglas is serving up the ultimate comeback at her haters — by becoming a cyberbullying champion.
The Olympic gymnast is teaming up with Hack Harassment and will be their first Change Ambassador.
In her new role, she’ll continue her own, and the organization’s efforts to decrease the frequency and severity of online harassment and will help to ensure the campaign remains focused on addressing the experiences of those who face such treatment.
Earlier this year, Gabby was under fire for several things during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics — most famously for not putting her hand over her heart while the national anthem was playing and again, about her hair.
“OKK this needs to be addressed, I’m fed up and shutting this down,” Gabby wrote on her Instagram recently, tackling her haters. “The people that want to be petty EXIT STAGE LEFT PLEASE. Honestly if you’re gonna be foul just to be nasty or vile to comment I can help you find better ways to pass the time.”
Gabby Douglas is calling out her haters again — and it’s time they listen!
The Olympic gymnast took to social media on Thursday (November 10), clapping back at all the negativity she’s seeing throughout the comments on her accounts.
“OKK this needs to be addressed, I’m fed up and shutting this down,” Gabby writes. “The people that want to be petty EXIT STAGE LEFT PLEASE. Honestly if you’re gonna be foul just to be nasty or vile to comment I can help you find better ways to pass the time.”
Yes, Gabby! Tell them!
Aly Raisman, Gabby‘s teammate, is sticking by her side too. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it. Simple as that. We love you Gabby. See you in a few hours :)” she writes on her own Instagram.
The 20-year-old Olympian and her sister are featured in the photo series as well as other celebs and their mentors including Chloe Moretz and her mom Teri, Gabourey Sidibe and producer Lisa Cortes and Iman and activist Bethann Hardison.
“I attribute so much of my growth, both personally and professionally, to strong guidance from my mentors. I couldn’t be more pleased to honor that special relationship by joining forces with #ActuallySheCan Mentorship, helping young women realize the value of the counsel mentors can provide,” Gabby explained.
