Olympian Gabby Douglas continues to be scrutinized time and time again — from her hair, to her makeup, and not putting her hand over her heart during the national anthem.

Who would've thought being an Olympic gold medalist would be so challenging?

"Ghostbusters" actress and now Olympic correspondent Leslie Jones is no stranger to being attacked by social media.

Jones expressed to her followers the importance of showing Douglas the support she deserves with the special hashtag #Love4GabbyUSA. 

Countless people agreed with Jones and are showing support by tweeting uplifting words to Douglas.
