Mexicans were leading the pack.
The Olympics have been the topic of conversation for the past week and they still are! But we’re supposed to be talking about the talents and skills of all participating athletes. Well, that’s not the case here. So many people are focused on what the competitors are wearing, how their hair looks, and, now, how great or not-so-great their bodies are.
Mexican gymnast Alexa Moreno is a victim of harsh criticism following her gymnastics competition. It’s not about her stumbling or missing a step, it’s about her body. Her 99-pound body! After she competed in the Rio games, critics took to social media and comment on how she should lose weight. Well, there were more than a few people who came to her defense, and it wasn’t pretty.
Things got real when tweeters shamed the body-shamers.
