After Gabby Douglas’s teammate Aly Raisman revealed that USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar had sexual abused her, Douglas responded with some insensitive comments.

“However it is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy. Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd.”

Simon Biles blasted Douglas for her comments saying the following:

“Shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me… honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her.”
