Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas victim blames teammate over abuse allegations

Simone Biles is calling out her former gymnastics teammate over a recent response to a post on sexual abuse.

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman has been a tremendous advocate for objectified women, and Friday morning she reaffirmed that advocacy.

Raisman went on to say that women have the right to dress however they please, and to feel "sexy and comfortable in their own skin". We were stunned to see such a mean comment from the gymnast, but it sounds like Simone Biles wasnt.

"Shocks me that I'm seeing this but it doesn't surprise me. honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her", Biles wrote to express her disgust at Douglas' words. Aly Raisman has had a rough month after bravely admitting she was sexually abused by Olympic team doctor Larry Nassar, and it got a little rougher on November 17. "I support you Aly & all the other women out there".

Aly Raisman, above at the 2016 Rio Olympics, describes her sexual abuse claims in her recently published memoir "Fierce: How Competing for Myself Changed Everything".

"I am deeply sorry for coming off like I don't stand alongside my teammates", she wrote.

Women's gymnastics was revealed to have a culture of sexual abuse after the actions of former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State team doctor Larry Nassar were made public in 2015.

During a 60 Minutes interview last week, 23-year-old Reisman accused former US gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar, of sexual abusing her when she was 15 years old.

"Stop victim shaming", she wrote.

"I didn't know anything differently", Raisman said on "60 Minutes" of the abuse.

Douglas later tried to rephrase her remarks to Raisman, but not before a torrent of abuse on social media.

After her initial interview, Raisman came to realize she herself was a victim, and tried to speak again with that agent.

'Shortly after she left, it hit me.

Nassar is now in jail after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.

Authorities revealed back in December of a year ago that they had discovered over 37,000 images and videos of child pornography featuring girls as young as six and a Go Pro video of Nassar molesting a group of young girls in a pool.
