Shawn Johnson is PISSED.
And they are not even a little bit diplomatic.
On the subject of how the organization could fail to protect so many girls, Johnson says:
“Knowing that USA Gymnastics has failed their athletes so terribly, disappoints me and makes me so incredibly angry. I think the fact that any of this has ever happened shows that USA Gymnastics has failed as a governing body to protect the athletes that it supports and claims to care about. I don’t know. This video is so hard for me to make. We’ve tried to shoot this countless times and I have ended up in tears, I’ve been angry, I’ve been confused. Just because there are so many words and so many experiences that I have gone through.”
