Gabby Douglas, a member of the dominant "Final Five" in Rio, took to Twitter on Friday to share her thoughts on her teammate Aly Raisman’s claims that she had been sexually abused by former U.S. gymnastics team Doctor Larry Nassar, and her opinion shocked and left social media users with surprise, including a fellow teammate.

Raisman shared her own story of alleged sexual abuse on Friday morning and spoke out on Instagram about victim shaming that many women endure after coming forward about their own attacks.

“Just because a woman does a sexy photo shoot or wears a sexy outfit does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse,” Raisman wrote. “What is wrong with some of you? AND when a woman dresses sexy it does not give a man the right to sexually abuse her EVER.”

Douglas responded to Raisman's post saying “It is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy. Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd," in a now-deleted tweet. Fellow Olympic star and gymnast Simone Biles immediately came to her teammate Raisman’s defense and called out Douglas for her comments.

"Shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me... honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her," Biles wrote on Twitter to express her discontent at Douglas’ words.

Social media users on Twitter showed their support for Biles and slammed Douglas for victim blaming Raisman.

A couple hours after Biles' message on Twitter went viral, Douglas took back her earlier words and sent out an apology, where she said she agrees "abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable" and stands with her teammates.

While Douglas deleted her original tweet that created the outrage, she did defend herself against Twitter users who slammed her for what she had written earlier. "u misunderstood me," Douglas wrote to one of the users, according to People magazine. "Not blaming the victim at all. No man should look at any woman that way."

The user tweeted at Douglas again, writing, "So instead of calling on women to dress modestly you better be calling on MEN to RESPECT WOMEN."

To which, Douglas responded saying, "it goes both ways."

Raisman’s statement came Friday, just a week after she alleged in a CBS News’ “60 Minutes” interview that former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused her when she was a minor.

“I am angry. I'm really upset,” Raisman said in the interview. “I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is. … I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.”

Raisman also wrote about the ordeal in her new book, “Fierce,” explaining that she was only 15 years old when she was first treated by Nassar. She told People magazine that, for a long time, she could not understand that she was being abused.

“I didn’t think I was being molested. I didn’t know,” Raisman said. “He was a doctor. I would never have thought that a doctor would misuse his power so much.”

Raisman and her teammate Biles are among the most decorated gymnasts in American history. While Biles has four gold medals at the 2016 games to her name in Rio, Raisman has three golds, two silvers and a bronze from her two Olympic appearances.
