16-year-old Gabby Douglas is already wise beyond her years. Instead of letting the negativity of the new social media world bring her down, she took the mature route that many athletes lack in today’s sports. Douglas has faced criticism from certain people in the social media world regarding her hair. This coming despite winning an array of gold medals, while setting American records in the process.
“I don’t know where this is coming from. What’s wrong with my hair? I just simply gelled it back, put some clips it and put it in a bun. Are you kidding me? I just made history. And you’re focusing on my hair? I just want to say, we’re all beautiful inside out. I don’t think people should be worried about that. Nothing is going to change,” she said.
“So you might as well stop with all the comments,” she added.
