Throughout the Olympics there were a lot of sofa experts, criticising the talent of the world's athletes.
One man, who goes by the handle 'Angry Hippy', was quick to 'body shame' three of America's prime athletes, Simone Biles, Madison Kocian and Aly Raisman, who are gymnasts.
The trio posted a picture of them on the beach, showing off their ripped bodies.
Obviously, their abs, which are reminiscent of a cheese grater, had people impressed. That is except for 'Angry Hippy'.
He took to Twitter to insinuate that they weren't attractive, in a tweet which has since been deleted.
Unfortunately for him, the togetherness and solidarity that the Olympic creates was in full flow, as many people rushed to the support of the gymnasts.
Do you think they did years of training to get to the olympics to hear your opinion Daniel? https://t.co/CPnpdpnQZV

The gymnasts are yet to see the support they've received after the body shaming, but while he's sat at home on his parent's couch, wanking into a dirty sock and eating shite food, I presume they don't care for his opinion.
