My love for McKayla will never stop, as a gymnast and as a person she’ll always be my favorite.

Catching you up on McKayla, Gymnastike and the gymternet being awesome.

Good Morning! 

So if you weren’t around last night, this is an explanation of last nights drama. If you were around, feel free to send this link to the 9000 people who will inevitably ask you what the fuck happened. 

On Saturday afternoon a “master list” of celebrities nude photos was released on 4chan. Big names like Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Victoria Justice and nearly 100 others, including McKayla Maroney, were on this list. USAG has commented to journalists that Maroney’s pictures are indeed fake, but regardless, the pictures are dated before her 18th birthday. This means that if these pictures weren’t altered, that they would be considered child pornography. 

Around 8 PM last night, Gymnastike posted an article entitled “Maroney Victim of Nude Photo Leak”. Not only did Gymnastike draw attention to this to their readers (many of whom are young girls), but they LINKED to the original, potentially illegal photos. Gymnastike makes no mention that these pictures are fake. (You can read this article, which has been screenshotted to avoid giving Gymnastike ad revenue here.) 

The gymternet stepped up to the plate and called Gymnastike on their shit by tweeting them, their parent company Flocasts and USA Gymnastics. The hashtag #BoycottGymnastike was all over twitter with fans expressing their objections to this posting. After this, Gymnastike deleted the link to the original pictures from their article and deleted the link to their article from twitter. However, even now the article itself remains on Gymnastike’s website. 

Several fans and members of the gymnastics community spoke with USA Gymnastics officials about Gymnastike’s posting. Leslie King, USAG’s Communication director has issued a similar response to at least 2 different individuals. She stated :
Thank you for contacting me. We also are disappointed and disgusted with Gymnastike’s decision and lack of good judgment regarding this, and we are going to re-evaluate our previous decision to grant them access to our events. We share the concerns that you outlined below. Regards, Leslie 
(You can read her correspondence with another fan here)

If you feel like you should do something, here are some things that you can do to show Gymnastike that you are not okay with this. Drops in their numbers will speak to them. 
1. Choose not to read or frequent Gymnastike and instead use the many other sites out there for gymnastics news and features. 
2. Unfollow Gymnastike on Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr. 
3. Unsubscribe from Gymnastike Gold. 
4. Tweet @gymnastike, @flocasts and use the hashtag #BoycottGymnastike to share your feelings on this.
5. Support McKayla by tweeting her or using the #supportmack

So I sent Leslie King who is the head of Media Services at USAG who’s email can be found on USAG’s website and was also given to me by my-bff-nastia and this was the email I sent as well as the response I got. I also sent the same email to Steve Penny, I don’t know if he will get back to me but I saw his email and I figured he should do something considering his track record. 

bless you :)

MAKE THEM CRY

we should all email them until they revoke or at least suspend gymnastike’s privileges.

well, people power is one of the strongest powers on this planet!

Anonymous sent: (I don't have a tumblr and don't know where better to mention this. Repost at your discretion.) Can I just clear something up for the gymternet? I don't know what people have seen or are assuming but there are no nudes of mckayla. There were two legit pictures leaked but none show more than what would be revealed in a bikini. There is a topless photo going around proported to be Mac but its an old fake not part of the leak. Source: I'm from 4chan.

my-bff-nastia:

Yeah, I have confirmation from someone within the USA Gymnastics organization stating that the topless photo is NOT Maroney. But the issue is that people THINK it is Maroney. So even though it is not her, it is still damaging to her reputation, especially when it’s being posted on a website with a demographic of 10-18 year olds who look up to her.
