Gabby Douglas has recently received loads of backlash on twitter for absolutely no reason at all.  Critics are voicing their opinions saying she needs to smile more, and even wear her hair differently.

Social media can be used for such horrible things like bullying, but it can also be used to spread a little love.  #LOVE4GABBYUSA started trending on Twitter yesterday after horrible tweets about the 20-year-old Olympian started to surface.

Comedian and actress Leslie Jones knows exactly how Douglass feels, as she was too recently bullied on twitter.  Soon after negative tweets about Jones surfaced, #LoveForLeslieJ started trending on Twitter to she Jones she was loved.  Jones took to twitter yesterday and tweeted the following message to Douglas:

It didn’t take long for the hashtag to trend on twitter with other celebrities and fans tweeting to show her love.  Gabby’s haters quickly learned what’s up.

Shonda Rhimes tweeted, “True story: Yesterday my 3 yr old announced that her name is now GabbyDouglas Rhimes.

 

Gabby later responded on Twitter, thanking Leslie Jones and fans for the love.  Now hopefully we are done hearing about people saying negative things about Douglas, and see more stories about her inspiring others.  We most definately have #LOVE4GABBYUSA!
