Quick Quotes: Gabby Douglas Doesn’t Care What You Think About Her Hair — Thanks!

gabby1 Quick Quotes: Gabby Douglas Doesnt Care What You Think About Her Hair    Thanks!

Days after becoming the first African American gymnast to win her sport’s biggest prize Gabby Douglas tells the Associated Press that she was left confused when she discovered people online were debating her hair. Girl, I am too.

“I don’t know where this is coming from. What’s wrong with my hair? 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. Nothing is going to change. I’m going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it. I don’t think people should be worried about that. We’re all champions and we’re all winners. I just say that it’s kind of, a stupid and crazy thought to think about my hair.”

And in that order!

    I saw something about this somewhere else too, some nonsense about her hair, who f*cking cares? That’s so damn tacky, to talk about such things when she should be congratulated….TMZ has a post up about her mother filing for bankruptcy and it literally lists off who she owes money to and how much…the f*ck is that about? Now I like gossip as much as the next person, if not more, but damn, why can’t people just be proud of her and keep their negative comments to themselves?

    I honestly don’t remember anyone saying anything about her hair. All of a sudden it’s getting media coverage. I’ve seen all types of ratchet hair on folks on tv. Sounds like some ole okey doke news for distraction.

  • Mrz_M

    So… Bring me up to speed. Who decides what will make the leap from “Black Twitter” to mainstream media? Oh… Ok. Is it possible that Black ppl were far more proud of Gabby’s success than were critical of her hair? I’d like receipts and analytics, thanks.

    Chris Hansen called. All the jealous hoes need to take a seat and answer what the fuck where they thinking?

    These hoes would praise Nicki and her fix a flat ass, Beyonce and her desire being white and New York’s lamb chop ass before praising a black girl who achieved her dreams of being an Olympic gymnast. They are just as bad as those mo’fuccas who talk shit about the First Lady Micky O. 

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/ZUFKWPOVKYCV5HZJIZH3WMX5VU Lady Tee

      Based on the statement above…I nominate Micron for president.

    This had me so mad the other day because I’m frustrated that instead of talking about her accomplishments and basking in her victory, I, as a failed gymnast (Man, I got too tall too fast and to this day I’m clumsy as all get-out) was sitting up mad and frustrated at these simpletons talking about her hair. I didn’t even NOTICE it until someone said something ignorant on Twitter.
    Then there was someone on Facebook whining about her nickname being “Flying Squirrel”. I’m like “That’s been her nickname for years and if she didn’t like it we would have never heard it.” which apparently doesn’t matter.
    Then someone complaining that the news referred to her host mother as her “second mom”. I’m like “BUT HER OWN MOTHER SAID IT FIRST!”

    It seems like no matter what side you’re on, you’re distracting from what actually happened-I’m guilty too because I respond to the madness. It’s so frustrating to FINALLY have an American woman-a black one at that-who won gold medals in both team and individual all-around competition at the gahdamn OLYMPICS who is so mired in fake controversy.

    The same chicks that worry about their hair are the same chicks that will become obese with high blood pressure and diabetes from not working out, so that they won’t sweat out their hair. They need to go to the nearest stadium and have ALL the seats!!

    Leave it to mainstream media to chose to pay attention to “black twitter” during the fucking Olympics. Well…let’s just feel blessed that otherwise our ignorant cousins are generall ignored.

    • http://www.twitter.com/iamnotablogger Marissa

      Right?! I’m glad someone else felt this way.

    This is why we can’t get anywhere as a sisterhood….I bet most of the sistas emphasizing on the wrong issue has a Vivica Fox Wig with Naomi Campbell hairline….damn history,right?Not surprised,somewhat,though…Remember when Florence Griffin Joyner was chastised for being “too fly” with her colorful long acrylic nails,fancy running attire and epic weaves and she shut them haters down too.

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/BZDNEISLLWZMHFFPLM4GUIUHKM bohemia

      My oops…Griffith.

    “I am not my hair” game proper.

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/ZUFKWPOVKYCV5HZJIZH3WMX5VU Lady Tee

    The more she talks, the more iLove her (youngings like her give me hope for our future).

    There are some adults that can take a lesson from Gabby on how to respond to hate and jealousy (looking at you the entire cast of RHOA, BBW, Love &HipHop).

    What I found infuriating was the fact she had to take time out of her day from being an awesome Olympic athlete to respond to this fuckery.  Bad enough that NBC refuses to give her the proper respect due during their coverage of gymnastics.  Even worse, you have a tea party MFer claiming she wasnt’ “patriotic enough.”  She also has to add self-hating negroes to the ”wide world of haters” to her list.

    Gabby, be blessed and let your haters stay pressed!

  • OB

    Yes, her hair was a topic of conversation on twitter by broke ass, untalented, out of shape heffas on stolen wi-fi. I’m glad she checked them with a very polite, “fuck ya’ll”.

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/3UGTYKZOKFM65ATQQCQEHBBHKI Mz.

    She really should have finished that statement with “Nevermind the fact that IM RICH BITCH!”

    (See that’s exactly why God wont let me come across that kind of money)

    • http://www.twitter.com/HostileNegress NattyFemme

      I vote for the more seasonally appropriate “Bitch I got money!” (And I’m sorry – but that slewfooted ponytail DID stick out to me when I first saw the child. Not enough to tweet – but enough to say an extra Jaysus or four…)

  • lsong

    Gabby since you to classy I will tell all the haters to kiss yo beautiful talented ass!!

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/3UGTYKZOKFM65ATQQCQEHBBHKI Mz.

      people all over the world, join hands, and kiss my entire nappy headed ass!

  • AlWell

    Love her and so happy she wasn’t phased. 

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/O6DCULTG7Y5JBPKZCO6TIITLQE Dianna

    I’m glad i’m not the only one who was confused by this whole topic. It made absolutely no sense to comment negatively on her hair. But then again, when have basic heffa ass heffas on Twitter /FB made ANY sense?

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/M6RQBLLVQXXVQJKKLAXTH6BONQ Dutch Apple Pie

    Hold on…this was a topic of conversation? Not that she was the first black woman to get a gold medal in her area? Not that she was a young positive role model? Not that she on a cereal box? That she was a healthy, happy, normal young woman that is a great gymnast?

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/7YUKEYQ656P5IO7QD37JO4OSDM Mook

      Not that she was the first black woman to get a gold medal in her area?” 

      Dominique Dawes game proper

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/M6RQBLLVQXXVQJKKLAXTH6BONQ Dutch Apple Pie

        True but Gabby is the first to win a gold for individual all-around champion. Nice to see that Dominique is still active and working with the youth to be healthier

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/CBJU3JDYZQTM3RFRR2MAVVTUTM peppermint

      why accentuate the positive when the haters are in full force?

      People are absolutely fucking ridiculous. She’s made history and assholes are commenting on her hair. Fucking stupid. and her hair is FINE she rocking it like ANY.OTHER.GYMNAST.WITH.GEL.IN.IT. So stupid!

      • lsong

        I’m ready to whoop the hater asses myself – exhaling

  • SPLACKEVELLIE

    She’s so cute!

  • oc

    they must have edited the part where she said .. “no excuse me as i deposit this 90 million dollar check from kellogg’s.”

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/7YUKEYQ656P5IO7QD37JO4OSDM Mook

      I just read somewhere that her momma filed for chapter 11 before Gabby went to London for the Olympics. now she can pay all the creditors! 

      • De

        stop it! Thats Gabby’s money 

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/CBJU3JDYZQTM3RFRR2MAVVTUTM peppermint

    RIGHT!?! Get yours Gabby, ignore the haters. The fk is wrong with her hair on the reals?? Because I saw some chick from some Eastern European country whose hair needed a prayer and some conditioner and Iownt hear nobody talking shit about that badly dyed skunk job.

    • lsong

      It might be Wendy man lookin Williams  talkin shit-self hatin ass, with her fuk up wig wearin self. These chicks with the weaves can’t even break out in a sweat.  Like to see them or their hair recover from that wonderful young lady’s gym routine.
