Olympian Gabby Douglas says team doctor abused her, says women should dress more modestly

By Tracy Connor,

Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas revealed in an Instagram post on Tuesday that she was abused by former team doctor Larry Nassar, who is expected to plead guilty to criminal charges on Wednesday.

The disclosure came in a new apology for a tweet last week in which Douglas said women have a responsibility to dress modestly because “dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd.”

“I didn’t view my comments as victim shaming because I know that no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you,” she wrote in her Instagram statement.
