Gabby Douglas has had enough of ya’ll dragging her on social media. Since the 2012 Olympic Gymnastics champion has been competing in the 2016 Rio games, it’s been one critique after another about her hair, lack of patriotism, being a poor sport, and more.
The 20-year-old literally broke down after talking to reporters on Sunday night after placing 7th in the uneven bars finals. When asked about all of the backlash she’s received during her time in Rio she said: “When they talk about my hair or me not putting my hand on my heart or me being very salty in the stands, they’re really criticizing me. It doesn’t really feel good. It was a little bit hurtful.”
When asked about her performance at this year’s games, and failing to place in the individual all-around finals as she did in 2012, she said: “In my head, I pictured it a little bit differently. You want to picture yourself being on top and doing amazing gymnastics.”
Last week, the two-time Olympian was called “unpatriotic” by some online critics after she didn’t place her hand over her heart when the “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played after Team USA won the all-around finals. And, if that wasn’t enough, she was also accused of being “a poor sport” and “looking salty” after placing third behind her teammates Aly Raisman and Simone Biles in the individual all around semi-finals.
“Everything I’ve gone through has been a lot this time around,” Douglas said, “and I apologize if [I seemed] really mad in the stands. I wasn’t. I was supporting Aly. And I always will support them and respect them in everything they do. I never want anyone to take it as I was jealous or I wanted attention. Never. I support them, and I’m sorry that I wasn’t showing it.”
“I’ve been through a lot,” she added. “I still love them. I still love the people who love me. Still love them who hate me. I’m just going to stand on that.”
Following the interview, Douglas could be seen sitting alone scrolling through her phone. A member of the team’s staff and a fellow gymnast both stopped to console her, and to offer a hug. Eventually, she was seen grabbing a tissue, dabbing her eyes and wiping her nose as she exited the gym.
Third Times A Charm? Looks Like Ayesha & Steph Curry Are Having A BOY!
We at HH do our due diligence when it comes to breaking news and advancing stories. So, we report this news with the caveat … Ayesha ain’t told us ish! But, with that being said, our super sleuth skills are on point and we know a thing or two about pregnancy and birthing babies. So, here’s why we
know think Ayesha and Steph will be welcoming a boy this time around…
Just a few weeks ago Mrs. Curry announced baby number three is on the way! The mommy/wife/entrepreneur is also documenting this pregnancy on her new site GoInspo.com and the little nuggets that she’s revealed so far are BIG clues as to why a Steph Jr. is a strong possibility.
“I still have nausea, I can’t sleep, I pee every 5 seconds and am just so darn tired. I have what docs call Hyperemesis. This basically means the nausea, incessant sickness and exhaustion probably won’t go away. The only silver linings here are that my itty bitty baby is healthy and Princess Kate has suffered from the same condition during her pregnancies. Not feeling super royal though.”
This description of her pregnancy was our first clue — super sick = baby boy. #issafact #fightus
Ayesha also mentioned that this pregnancy has been far different from her first two times with daughters, Riley and Ryan. Second clue — different symptoms = different gender.
And our third and final clue? When Ayesha spoke of being down about the fact that although cooking was her passion, but her aversion to food made it impossible to be in the kitchen she stated, “This all has got me in a funk that. I can’t seem to shake. I don’t want to say I’m depressed because I take mental health very seriously but I am truly very very sad. When you can’t do what you love all of a sudden because of an uncontrollable situation, it sucks.” Sorry to say, but boys make you blue.
Clearly, this is a bit of presumption mixed with a bit of old wives tale, but we’d bet our money on a baby boy for the Curry family. How about you?
