Fox News: Gymnast Gabby Douglas’ uniform isn’t patriotic enough

Updated

Gabby Douglas may have won the U.S. two gold medals in London this year, but according to Fox News, she didn’t display the proper amount of patriotism. 

The proof: Hot pink leotards, instead of red white and blue.

“Gabby had that great moment and everybody’s so excited, and she’s in hot pink and that’s her prerogative” said Fox News’ Alisyn Camerota.

“Yeah, who cares if Gabby Douglas made history?” shot back msnbc’s Al Sharpton on Monday’s PoliticsNation. ”She wore pink! Pink!” 

In addition to helping her team win the team’s first gold medal since 1996, 16-year-old Douglas is also the first African-American to win the prestigious artistic gymnastics women’s individual all-around gold medal. President Obama even phoned Douglas to congratulate her on her wins.

The 16-year-old gymnast has already been criticized for her supposedly unkempt hair, which she ties back in a bun with clips. When asked about her ‘do, Douglas responded: “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.”
