Gabby Douglas Says Her Hair Won’t Change

gabby douglas responds to hair controversy

Have you been following the controversy surrounding Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas? Gabby says after she won, she googled herself (something she’s probably going to learn NOT to do!) What did Gabby find after her historic win? Criticism of her HAIR, of all things!

“I don’t know where this is coming from. What’s wrong with my hair? I’m like, ‘I just made history and people are focused on my hair?’ It can be bald or short, it doesn’t matter about (my) hair.”

I completely agree. When you’re an athlete competing in the Olympics, the only goal with your hair is to keep it Out Of Your Way! Gabby said she’s not going to focus on her hair, either.

“Nothing is going to change. I’m going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it. I don’t think people should be worried about that. We’re all champions and we’re all winners. I just say that it’s kind of a stupid and crazy thought to think about my hair.”

GO Gabby! Can’t WAIT to see her compete in some of the individual events tonight and tomorrow night.
