Young Olympian , Gabby Douglas, received some heavy backlash because of something she didn’t do while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. After Team USA women’s gymnastics team snagged gold at this year’s Olympic Games, Gabby Douglas and her four teammates lined up to recite the pledge…. only problem was, Gabby’s hands remained by her side.
Many people were unhappy to see this, and called the gesture “un-olympic.” The fact that Gabby is also a military kid may have added fuel to the fire.
As classy as Gabby is, she decided to take to social network and explain her side, stating that she always stands at attention out of respect for our country whenever the National Anthem is played.
