In a series of tweet, Aly Raisman urged people to stop shaming others and accusing women of being attention seekers.



The American gymnast uploaded a video of herself working out on the sidewalk and some pointed out that she is doing it for attention.




The comments drove Raisman to take a stand and demand the society to change.

"It is absurd that by posting a video of myself working out outside I am told by some I am asking for attention. Society needs 2 stop shaming"




"I ❤ working out outside for fresh air. I don't workout for approval of others. I workout 2 feel good. 2 feel mentally strong & 2 be healthy"




"I think it's time that society stops shaming others. We are entitled 2 do what makes us feel happy & good, right? Change must start with us."




 "It pisses me off that women are constantly told they are asking for attention. We all need to stand together and help create change."




"Not trying to focus on negatives BTW I am constantly inspired by all the strong followers I have. It is amazing how empowering many of u r."




 "& also remember everyone you follow, no matter the amount of followers they have is human, with FEELINGS. When you are rude it hurts."




 Raisman, who competed at 2012 and 2016 Olympics, is the winner of six Olympic medals - three of which are gold. She has expressed desire to compete at Tokyo Olympics.

  1. So now that Aly is retired she decides to speak up. Looking for attention much. Ooops accused her of doing exactly what she didn't want done.

    Sadly too many woman like Aly are making it harder for woman to deal with these situations and they are not smart enough to understand they are setting woman back, years.
