Six time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman firmly responded to compatriot Terin Humphrey's tone deaf tweet.

Humphrey, who is USAG athlete representative and former Olympic medalist, posted a tweet about how proud she is of getting the chance to represent the United States of America at the 2004 Olympics amid Maroney sexual assault revelation.

The retired American gymnast was accused of being tone deaf. With several Twitter users pointing out that she is the athlete representative who is supposed to be in charge of "making sure the athletes were okay and protected", to which she responded "Unfortunately I don't travel to the competitions".

Replying to her response, Raisman wrote "Still important for you and everyone at USAG to show sincere support".



Four time Olympic medalist Simone Biles liked Raisman's response on Twitter.

Raisman's mother, Lynn, quoted a tweet that blasted Humphrey adding "Wondering the same..."






Yesterday, 2012 Olympic gold medalist Maroney became the latest gymnast who alleged that disgraced team doctor Larry Nassar sexually assaulted her when she was on the national team.
