McKayla Maroney Has The Support Of Her Fierce Five Teammates After She Opened Up About Alleged Sexual Abuse





mckayla maroneyMcKayla Maroney has the support of her former Fierce Five teammates in wake of her recent allegations of sexual abuse against a former USA Gymnastics doctor.


In a letter shared on social media early Wednesday, inspired by the #MeToo Twitter campaign, the 21-year-old Olympic gymnast accused Dr. Larry Nassar of molesting her when she was a young teen while he served as a physician for the U.S. Women’s National Gymnastics Team and Olympic Team. He has not responded to Maroney’s claims but does face separate sexual assault charges, which he has denied.

More than 100 women, namely female athletes, have sued Nasser for alleged sexual assault. He has denied abuse.

Like many of them, Maroney accused him in her tweets of carrying out the abuse under the guise of performing medical examinations. In February, he was charged with sexually assaulting nine girls. He awaits trial in December.
