Shawn Johnson is PISSED.
The 2008 Olympic gold medalist posted her thoughts on the USA Gymnastics scandal, in which dozens of young women were molested by team doctor Larry Nassar, on YouTube Monday.
And they are not even a little bit diplomatic.

On the subject of how the organization could fail to protect so many girls, Johnson says:

“Knowing that USA Gymnastics has failed their athletes so terribly, disappoints me and makes me so incredibly angry. I think the fact that any of this has ever happened shows that USA Gymnastics has failed as a governing body to protect the athletes that it supports and claims to care about. I don’t know. This video is so hard for me to make. We’ve tried to shoot this countless times and I have ended up in tears, I’ve been angry, I’ve been confused. Just because there are so many words and so many experiences that I have gone through.”

Damn. See Shawn’s full message to the athletes AND the program (below):
