Gabrielle Douglas has done America proud in winning her second Olympic gold medal so it comes as some surprise that a debate has broken out on Twitter over her hair.

Though she may have more important things on her mind, the Twittersphere is abuzz with discussion over the 16-year-old's slightly-tousled ponytail.

Critics have argued that her dark locks should in fact mimic the tight, ballerina-style bun that gymnasts usually tuck their hair into.

I can remember when Venus and Serena Williams came on the professional tennis scene, they were ridiculed, including by Black people, about their hair which, at that time, they wore cornrowed with beads.

I don't even tweet but, when I heard about this, I just couldn't get over the mentality of Us and our fascination with trying to get our hair to look like europeans!!! We should aplaud the young lady for her accomplishments and be proud that she is a positive role model instead of that OLD "house negro vs field negro" argument of who hair looks the most like yt's!!!!! What's next, her lips are too big or she doesn't have the same shape as Beyonce?!?!
