I have not read this article yet so I don’t know what the issue is but I’m going to say right now just
because unless she is somehow using her hair to swing from the uneven bars this is NOT A FUCKING ISSUE
From the article:
“I love how she’s doing her thing and winning,’’ says 22-year-old Latisha Jenkins of Detroit told The Daily Beast. “But I just hate the way her hair looks with all those pins and gel. I wish someone could have helped her make it look better since she’s being seen all over the world. She representing for black women everywhere.’’
I don’t really see how the way her hair looks is relevant to all this. Not everyone looks like a super model. What gymnasts do isn’t easy and I’m sure having a bunch of make-up and hair product in doesn’t make it easier. Let these girls be comfortable in their sport. I think her hair looks fine just the way it is. Wasn’t even paying attention to it. Too distracted by her awesomeness.
I’ve only barely glanced through the olympics posts but her story… wow. I can’t believe the judges let the other girl win, even though it was a clear mistake on their part. I guess they were to embarrassed to go back on their answer and instead chose to ruin this woman’s chance at the gold.
