Gabby Douglas' mom has a message to the critics: Stop bullying my daughter.
"She's had to deal with people criticizing her hair, or people accusing her of bleaching her skin. They said she had breast enhancements, they said she wasn't smiling enough, she's unpatriotic," Gabby's mom shared with Reuters. "Then it went to not supporting your teammates. Now you're ‘Crabby Gabby.' You name it and she got trampled. What did she ever do to anyone?"
Some viewers got upset with the gold medalist on August 9 when Gabby failed to place her hand over her heart as the national anthem played in the background. Despite a public apology, it wasn't enough for some fans to avoid voicing their frustrations.
