Black Radio Host Criticizes Gabby Douglass’ Outfit

U.S. Gold Medalist can't seem to catch a break from critics

The Gabby Douglas critics continue to pile up.

A black conservative radio host is the latest to criticize the Olympic Gold Medalist.

David Webb appeared on Fox News last week and criticized Douglas for not draping the American flag over her body or wearing an American flag printed leotard.

“What we’re seeing is this kind of soft anti-American feeling, that Americans can’t show our exceptionalism,” said Webb. “And frankly, if they are offended about us showing our exceptionalism, then they have that right and I don’t care. And neither do most Americans. That’s a fact.”

      Education, skills and better talent will get the job you are looking for. Not Obama’s fault if the work force is not competitive. May we need to keep some of the programs in place that offers people extended education and skill development. The job issue is technology related as well as skills. And when did a republican cared about that?

      Who’s omney ? YOU, please stay away from the polls. Thank you.

    This guy webb needs to crawl back under his rock! Her outfits did have some semblance of red,white and blue! What’s the freaking problem? She knows she an AMERICAN!

    He thought, “All I have to do to get my name out there is make a stupid comment about one of America’s favorite sweethearts that will get everyone worked up.” & I’ll be da%*ed, it worked! Surprise, surprise!

    Webb is a usually a rare voice of reason, but this makes absolutely no sense. In almost every event the US female gymnasts have NOT worn the colors of the flag. Maroney, Raisman, and the same has often been true of the men. And what about the US swimmers? The suits were all over the place. I would like a little more consistency myself but why on earth single out Gabby Douglass?

    • http://www.facebook.com/terry.miller.549 Terry Miller

      I can’t see how webb can be a voice of reasoning……he needs to be even more rare if you ask me…..he’s a creep and a bunch of other expletives

  • Terry

    Why?!,why?!,why do we (my people) find something negative to say about our athletes that has nothing to do with the accomplishment they just achieved?!!!….I don’t get it….she represented the US and performed well…..I just dont get it

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eva-Bishop/100000794877248 Eva Bishop

    I do wish our athletes had bigger flags on their outfits, but I would not single out Gabby, I noticed it on all of the outfits. Gabby rocks, and deserves everything she gets from this. She is a great role model for girls and don’t even get me started about her hair, who cares, she performed great and won the gold, that’s what counts. Go Gabby!!!!!

    UR A FUCCC IDIOT DAMN SHAME JU MAMA COUDLT SPELL CONDOM D.A

  • gg

    Black on Black hate, negativity out of control on social media sites! Why can’t we celebrate our accomplishments without the hate? Too much emphasis on outward appearance.

  • An American with soul

    Mr Webb is obviously is part of the problem, not the solution as it relates to dividing our country. Is this the best reporting he can do, I question his skills and talent as a reporter. But again, we are talking about FOX.

  • Divadan

    he needs to STFU! he is a grown ass man having something to say about this 16 year old girl. WTF? she is the first african american girl to achieve gold in the gymnastics overall events?!?!?! is he talking about when she was wearing the pink leotard or the silver one? what young girl doesn’t wear pink or silver with sparkles on it? all girls do that no matter what color they are? what is his daughter doing besides bouncin her ass to rap music and laying on her back? this pisses me off and its ridiculous, YOU need to take yo grown ass some where and get a F*uckin Life!

      Learn some manners and for that matter, some standard English mechanics, or no one will take you seriously.

    Who the hell is this ugly CULERO BSTRD Webb) anyway? He wanted a few minutes under the spot light, now he got it thanks to this forum. Until this article, I had never heard of his dumb ass.

    LET’S BOYCOTT HIS DUMB ARSE !

  • davedave11

    Maybe she should have worn shackles to demonstrate America’s legacy — over 150 yrs of slavery less than 150 years of freedom

  • TyroneMD

    Mr. Webb is right, and unlike many of those here, he’s not racist enough to ignore little Gabby’s lack of patriotism.

    • Karl

      lack of patriotism? SHE REPRESENTED THE UNITED STATES AT THE OLYMPICS and she won a gold medal for her country! She has done it with class and maturity and a huge smile on her face. And in a myriad of interviews has expressed what an honor it is to represent the US of A. You’re going to say she has a lack of patriotism because she wouldn’t wear something? That’s like saying a soldier who fights for our country is a traitor for cheering for another country in the Olympics. Grow up.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ralphr3 Ralph Russell

    Gabby showed her patriotism through hard work, having pride in her family, and winning the gold medal for her country; and that’s good enough for me.

  • AMAZED

    WHAT I FIND SO AMAZING IS HOW WE AMERICANS CAN ALWAYS FIND FAULT OR SEE WHAT WRONG WITH SOMEONE ELSE BUT WE NEVER SEE OUR SELVES. GABBY DOUGLAS IS A 16 YEAR OLD YOUNG GIRL THAT DID HER JOB AND DID IT WELL SHE WON THE GOLD SHE BEAT THE WORLD BUT WHATS MOST IMPORTANT IS THAT SHE IS FOCUS AND REALIZES THAT ALL THE NEG. PRESS IS JUST LIKE A-HOLES EVERYONE HAS ONE. LOOK IN THE MIRROR WHAT DO YOU SEE?

  • daniel

    well, if you noticed the Gray warmup suits that the gymnasts and the swimmers wore on the podium and DIDN”T question it, why not?

  • http://www.facebook.com/james.a.staten James A Staten

    Is he even aware that the athletes don’t pick the uniform they wear? Plus they wore different colored uniforms for each event. A red one , a blue one and a white one.

  • MajeztyRene’

    He needs to criticize his hair line ! Loser. I can’t believe he’s using the airways to disrespect this young lady ! She’s an olympic champion !! He’s a lame radio programmer who pushes a button. There are no such people as DJ’s anymore !
