(Washington, DC) – This is what happens when your star athletes stand together against something. Just four days after Congresswoman Mary Bono announced that she would be taking over as interim president for USA gymnastics, she is now announcing that she is resigning.
The departure comes after a tweet from Bono about Nike garnered strong disapproval from gymnastics’ superstars Simone Biles and Aly Raisman.
Olympic champion Simone Biles’ reaction to a tweet in which Bono expressed that she was happy she had a black sharpie in her bag to mark out the Nike logo on her shoes after the athletic wear and shoe company made Colin Kaepernick its spokesperson, summoned an immediate response from those in charge and it looks like they agreed with Simone.
Simone, who is also a Larry Nassar survivor, reacted writing “mouth drop (asterisk) don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything.”
