Gabby Douglas is calling out her haters again — and it’s doubtful they listen, because as you know… haters gonna hate.
The Olympic gymnast took to social media on Thursday to clap back at all the negativity she’s reading throughout the comments on her accounts.
OK this needs to be addressed, I’m fed up and shutting this down,” Gabby writes. “The people that want to be petty EXIT STAGE LEFT PLEASE. Honestly if you’re gonna be foul just to be nasty or vile to comment I can help you find better ways to pass the time.”
Aly Raisman, Gabby‘s teammate, is sticking up for her too. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it. Simple as that. We love you Gabby. See you in a few hours :)” she writes on her own Instagram.

Back in August, her mother spoke to Reuters about the bullies attacking Gabby’s appearance, accusing her of being unpatriotic, and mocking her with the mean-spirited nickname, “Crabby Gabby”, on social media.
Her mother, Natalie Hawkins, spoke of her daughter’s heartbreak over the criticism.
“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. Then it went to not supporting your team mates. Now you’re “Crabby Gabby”,” Hawkins said in an interview. “You name it and she got trampled. What did she ever do to anyone?”
