While Gold Medal gymnast Gabby Douglas was busy making history, a few people on twitter were more focused on her hair. This became a big topic last week on the blogs and now the 16 year-old has finally spoke about her hair critics. Check out what she 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.”
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. 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.” [ SOURCE ]
