Gabby Douglas comments on national anthem controversy
Gabby Douglas has a new gold medal and few choice words for her critics.
The athlete is hitting back at detractors following the U.S. women’s gymnastics squad taking first place in the overall team competition in Rio — the first time a U.S. women’s team has won gold at two consecutive Olympics. Douglas found herself at the center of controversy after being the only member of the Olympic team’s “Final Five” who didn’t place a hand over her heart as the national anthem played during Tuesday’s medal ceremony. She later cleared the air, tweeting a response to the incident on Wednesday morning.
