Aly Raisman Slams USA Gymnastics For ‘Shaming’ Sexual Assault Victims

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman firmly criticized USA Gymnastics on Wednesday for its response to another gymnast who alleged of being sexually abused by former team doctor Larry Nassar.

On Tuesday, former gymnast Maggie Nichols came forward to say that she was the first athlete to alert USA Gymnastics of Nassar’s improper behavior after being allegedly sexually abused during one of his “examinations” when she was just 15.

After USA Gymnastics released a statement in response denying Maggie’ claim that the organizing body “covered up” their internal investigation to avoid negative publicity before the 2016 Rio Olympics, Aly wrote a series of tweets blasting the organization.

Aly, who recently addressed herself was one of Nassar’s victims when she was 13, wrote,

STOP VICTIM SHAMING. Your statements are hurtful. If you did not believe that I & others were abused than why pressure & manipulate us? WE WERE MOLESTED BY A MONSTER U ENABLED 2 THRIVE FOR DECADES. You are 100% responsible. It was mandatory to get ‘treatment’ by Nassar.

The three-time gold medal winner continued,

We must investigate to figure out the many flaws in system. We must understand how this happened to make sure it never occurs again. This problem is bigger than [former USA Gymnastics president Steve] Penny and Nassar. The system has to change so that athletes are safe. Enablers need to be held accountable.

Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison last year on child pornography charges. More than 100 women have accused him of sexually assaulting them.
