Gymnastics: US team doctor abused me too, says Douglas

Gabby Douglas said gymnastic team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused her, too, along with other athletes participating on the USA team, breaking her silence Tuesday on social media.

McKayla Maroney, who competed alongside Raisman and Douglas at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, wrote on Twitter in October that she was also abused by Nassar.

Her latest comments come after she apologized for a tweet about Olympic teammate Aly Raisman's stance on sexual assault victims.?

She noted that she does not view her comments made toward Raisman as victim shaming because "I know that no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you".

Speaking about the risks of the flight, Hughes said: "It's scary as hell, but none of us are getting out of this world alive". The webshow host said the campaign needed someone not compromised by the government, "and you could be that man".

A publicist for Douglas later confirmed that the gymnast's post was confirmation that she was a victim of Nassar.

After deleting her original post, which caused outrage on social media, and issuing an immediate apology, Douglas expanded on her intentions Tuesday.

Douglas, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, said she didn't disclose his abuse earlier because "for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were very painful". Nasser is also facing civil suits from more than 125 women and girls. "It would be like saying because of the leotards we wore, it was our fault we were abused by Larry Nassar".

Nassaar remains in prison and awaits sentencing in MI.

As well as Raisman and Douglas, fellow United States gymnast McKayla Maroney, 21, has also revealed she too had been molested by Nassar under the guise of medical treatment. "I wholeheartedly support my teammates for coming forward with what happened to them". "Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd", Douglas wrote in a tweet that she later deleted.

Simone Biles, the Olympic gymnast and former teammate of Ms. Douglas, was among those who publicly criticized Ms. Douglas and expressed support for Ms. Raisman.

Douglas addressed the controversy in Tuesday's statement.

Nassar, 54, is accused of molesting several girls while working for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University.
