Gabby Douglas doesn’t care what you think about her hair

Fourth-Place Medal

A bit of an (incredibly silly) kerfuffle erupted over Gabrielle Douglas' hair after she won gold, as she was criticized for the state of her hair as she competed in the most important athletic event of her life. Tweets linked to here called her hair undone and said it was too much on camera. Like Fourth-Place Medal, Douglas found the discussion silly.

"I don't know where this is coming from. What's wrong with my hair?" said Douglas, the first U.S. gymnast to win gold in team and all-around competition. "I'm like, `I just made history and people are focused on my hair?' It can be bald or short, it doesn't matter about (my) hair."

Here is how she did her hair for the all-around final.

And here is how she wore her hair during the uneven bars final.

That's right, she didn't change it at all. She doesn't care what you think about her hair.

"Nothing is going to change," she said. "I'm going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it."

Well said, Gabby.
