Gabby Douglas Responds To Hair Controversy

Submitted by on August 7, 2012 – 9:37 am5 Comments

Just like many of you who’ve been following the Olympics, I was truly disgusted when some people chose to focus on gymnast Gabby Douglas‘ hair rather than her history making achievement of becoming the first African American to earn a gold medal as the women’s gymnastics all-around champion. Finally, the Virginia Beach native is speaking out on the controversy. On Sunday while speaking to several media outlets, Gabby said:

“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.”

“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.”

So for everyone who’s criticized the condition of her hair, the question remains: how fabulous did your hair look the last time you were making history? Don’t worry, I’ll wait…
