Gold medalist, Gabby Douglas is the first African-American gymnast to win in team and all-around competition. Despite her great accomplishments, some people are more concerned with her hair. After all the negative criticism about her hair, Gabby finally reponds to the haters.
"I don't know where this is coming from. What's wrong with my hair?" said Douglas, the first U.S. gymnast to win gold in team and all-around competition. "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."
Douglas uses gel, clips and a ponytail holder to keep things in place while she competes, a style she's worn for years.
"Nothing is going to change," she said. "I'm going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it."
The bubbly teenager is the first African-American gymnast to win her sport's biggest prize. She had no idea she was lighting up social media until she Googled herself hours after winning her gold medal.
"I don't think people should be worried about that," she said. "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."
Yes, it is girl!!! You go head and keep winning the gold! Watch her compete this Monday on the uneven bars and Tuesday on the balance beam.
