If you don’t have anything nice to say, best not to say anything at all. One troll learned this the hard way after criticizing the ladies from the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team.
Over the weekend, Simone Biles, Aly Raisman and Madison Kocian hit the beach in Rio. Biles shared a photo on Instagram Saturday of her and her girls in their bikinis.
For some inexplicable reason, trolls on Twitter decided to make disparaging remarks about their bodies even though they’re, you know, gold medal-winning Olympians.
Crystal McDuffy, a student at the University of Florida, shut down one particular hater who wrote “y’all find this attractive?” And she did it all in less than 140 characters.
“Everything women do is not for male consumption or approval,” she told BuzzFeed. “Be it in sports, politics, business and more, women continually seem to be evaluated based upon whether they’re attractive in a man’s eyes.”
