Gabby Douglas has made America proud by helping the USA women's gymnastic team bring home the gold for the first time since 1996. But, along with giving Gabby her due praise, the debate over Black hair once again raises its head, as many have taken to social media to discuss the 16 year old's hairstyles.

After Gabby's big win, an onslaught of people took to Twitter to broadcast their thoughts on her infamous 'do.

From @misDOScentavos (C. Renée): "On another note, Gabby Douglas gotta do something with this hair! These clips and this brown gel residue ain't it!"

Fortunately, these tactless criticisms received immediate pushback, including this tweet from Amanda Marcotte:

"If you want to ride Gabby Douglas for her hair, you should be open to her coming over to critique your muscle tone."
