Angela Andrews, a USA gymnastics coach and judge, gloated over Riley McCusker's failure to make the US Olympic team to Tokyo on Facebook.

"Ok...Elephant in The Room...Really Riley" wrote Angela Andrews. "God works in mysterious ways...Just Saying."

"Shout out all the girls that also busted their A.....to get to the Trials and the Olympics...God Bless Our Team."

When asked in a comment if her statement was suggesting that it was karma or payback for Riley leaving MG elites and suing her former coach Maggie Haney, Andrews responded that it was "her nasty instagram post that she blamed everyone but herself".

The Facebook status and Angela's reply were liked by Maggie Haney, who received eight years of suspension from gymnastics over repeated complaints of abuse.




This was not the first time for the USA gymnastics judge to attack Riley. Last May, she wrote in a post -that has since been deleted - "Karma is a gonna hit some of y'all real hard for breaking people who had nothing but good intentions for you, to which Haney replied to with "Wish I could like this 100x's".




Angela Andrews was one of the judges and coaches who wrote letters in support of Haney during her hearing on abuse allegation.

McCusker and 2016 Olympic champion Laurie Hernandez have alleged that they were abused by Haney, their then coach, with the first claiming that she faced emotional and physical abuse, including being forced to train through rhabdomyolysis, a breakdown of muscle tissue often caused by overtraining.

Last November, it was announced that Riley McCusker is suing Haney.

The 19 year old gymnast was the favorite for the second individual spot for Tokyo Olympics, nevertheless, Mykayla Skinner was named instead.
