US gymnast Ashton Locklear has found herself in hot water following an Instagram post she made regarding the 2016 US presidential election.

Locklear, who was named as alternate for 2016 Olympic team, posted a photo of herself along with teammate Madison Kocian and former gymnasts Jordyn Wieber and Shawn Johnson at Pentagon with caption "what a day to be in Washington D.C. #election2016 #trump".

The post sparked anger among her followers who bashed her for publicly supporting Donald Trump at the day of the elections.

"You are NA and voted for trump? He hates who you are" said one of her followers.

"That's a great way of showing you don't give a shit about other minorities or poor people!" said another.

While others jumped to her defense " Come on guys Ashton had a right to vote who she felt was right you all should be ashamed for knocking her down like that Ashton is a glorious girl and I will always respect the great girl she is.please support her and this country.keep rocking Ashton."
