Gabby Douglas interview


Gabby Douglas sits down for a one on one interview with Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter.

I was getting racist jokes. I was being isolated from the group. I’d come home at night and cry my eyes out because What did I do to deserve this? Gabrielle confessed to Oprah. She shared one of the ugliest jokes made to her face. One of my teammates was like. Can you scrape the bar? and they were like Well why doesn’t Gabby do it? She’s our slave.
