See ya never.

Three execs of the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors have resigned amid Larry Nassar's ongoing sexual abuse scandal. As you know, the longtime USA Gymnastics team doctor is facing sentencing this week after pleading guilty to molesting his patients under the guise of medical treatment. What a fucking monster.

Thing is — like survivors Aly Raisman and Emma Ann Miller so bravely pointed out — institutions like USAG, MSU, and the United Stated Olympic Committee should also be held responsible for allowing Nassar to abuse these young women, unchecked, for so many years. There are cases dating back all the way to 1997 proving the organizations and individuals were aware of assault allegations. Nassar has "treated" HUNDREDS of more female athletes since then. SHAME.

According to a statement posted by USA Gymnastics CEO Kerry Perry on Monday, Chairman Paul Parilla, vice-chairman Jay Binder, and treasurer Bitsy Kelley all tendered their resignations over the weekend.

Perry's announcement reads:

"We support their decisions to resign at this time. We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organization."

Let's hope that extremely necessary change happens.

The six-time Olympic medalist took the stand to address her abuser, where she ripped into him for the pain he's caused to the hundreds of victims and their families:

"You are so sick. You took advantage of our passions and our dreams. I am here to face you, Larry, so you can see I have regained my strength. That I am no longer a victim, I am a survivor. I am no longer that little girl you met in Australia, where you first began grooming and manipulating. You caused me a great deal of physical, mental, and emotional pain. You never healed me."

She went on to acknowledge his plea for victim impact statements to stop:

Disgraced Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar Begs Judge To Stop Victim Impact Stories — As McKayla Maroney SLAMS U.S. Olympics For Ignoring 'Red Flags'!

Deplorable convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar would rather not hear about all the times he sexually assaulted his patients.

The former Team USA gymnastics doctor wrote a letter to the court begging to end the witness statements, saying the unsettling stories about his abusive actions are bad for his mental health. We shit you not.

As we reported, 100 women are set to give victim impact statements to the court before Nassar is sentenced for his conviction of seven felony sexual assault charges.

50 women have shared their stories so far, detailing how Nassar broke them emotionally and, in some cases, made them consider suicide. But with 51 allegedly abused women still on deck, Nassar doesn't think he can take anymore.

The man actually wrote a letter to court officials, pleading to make it all stop — calling the court case a "media circus" that was "detrimental to his mental health."

Thankfully, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina silenced his pathetic ass in open court. Reminding Nassar he agreed to hear the witness statements as part of his plea deal, she said:
