Famed gymnast Gabby Douglas was looking forward to make her second run at the Olympics, but things haven’t been so great this time around.

For one thing, Gabby has been in several controversies.

She was called out for not placing her hand on her heart as the national anthem played during the team medal ceremony, and days later she was dragged for not being “happy enough” while Simone Biles and Aly Raisman competed for individual medals.

And frankly put, Gabby’s mom is tired of her daughter being criticized.

  1. Gabby and her mother would be better off not even addressing any of this. This is what these racists want. They want to know they broke her and they live off of knowing that. Gabby is going to have to be strong and focus on the games. Win more medals and make them seethe. She should call Serena and get some tips. The best revenge is success. Always.

  2. Sadly with this country, they only allow one black woman on top at once. That’s why having Beyonce and Rihanna doing well at the same time is a sucg a great thing. Simone is who they want right now, so they are tearing down Gabby any way possible. I just hope Simone is smart enough to understand her day to be torn down may very well come too. So she should be showing Gabby a lot of support right now.

  3. When they started making it all about Simone, I knew they were going to throw Gabby under the bus. Lord forbid we have two well loved black gymnasts slaying.

  4. People just want to hate this girl because she’s very pretty and it makes a lot of them salty. When you’re successful, pretty and black they will try their hardest to destroy you. That’s why it’s sad to see some black people jumping on the hate Gabby bandwagon too.

  5. Imma b real and say that she did seem salty in the stands while Simone and Aly were doing their thing. She didn’t even look excited after they killed it. I seen a lot of comradery from the other ladies whether it was fake or not they looked genuine…..she looked unimpressed. And she does look like she’s bleaching. No hate or shade just observations….she’s a great gymnast not taking that away.

  6. People gotta remember Gabby was getting dragged while Simone and Aly were competing so that’s why she seemed salty. You can’t expect someone to be all happy and smiles when they are getting dragged for something as silly as not putting her hand over her heart during the anthem.

  7. I think we won’t get the real story about all of this until the Olympics is over. Methinks Gabby’s teammates haven’t been all that nice to her when the cameras weren’t around. I mean Aly is the same person who made gag motions when Gabby made it to the team for the last Olympics. That was caught on camera. Gabby is not the sidekick black chick Aly wants. Gabby is drop dead gorgeous and she’s proud of her blackness. She also isn’t a butt kisser. Passive aggressive white chicks can’t stand the Gabbys of the world. Simone is a better gymnast than Aly but she has a follower mentality and she follows Aly around like a lost puppy dog. And that’s why Aly likes her. It’s actually embarrassing.

  8. At the end of the day, Gabby and her black girl magic has done more in a week than the people who are criticizing her have done in a lifetime. She’s already won. Nothing will ever change that.

  9. it’s really something else that the media thought it was so cute when McKayla looked “disappointed” when she lost at the last olympics, but Gabby not smiling and being visibly upset with herself makes her bitter, hateful and disgraceful. Sadly a lot of our own don’t even see the bias in all of this.
