US gymnast Gabby Douglas came under fire when she victim blamed and shamed sexual abuse survivors, on Twitter, including her teammate Aly Raisman who recently revealed that she was one of the many gymnasts who were sexually abused by disgraced team doctor Larry Nassar.

Teammate and the most decorated US Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, who took a screenshot of Gabby's now deleted tweet, called her out on the social networking service for turning her back on her teammate adding that it doesn't surprise her.

"shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me... honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you &  to support her.   I support you Aly ๐Ÿ’• & all the other women out there! STAY STRONG," Simone tweeted.



This is not the first time for Biles to stand up for Raisman. Last week, she publicly supported her after the latter came out as a sexual abuse survivor.



Biles competed alongside Douglas at 2015 Worlds and 2016 Olympic Games.
