Gabby Douglas’ Olympic Moment

Gabby Douglas: World-class athlete, gold medal winner in the Gymnastics All-Around final in London. All people can talk about is her hair.

But Gabby’s response was spot on:

“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. Nothing is going to change.”
