You have to be a special kind of idiot to body shame an Olympian. Their bodies, for years, have been stretched and developed and pushed to the limits of the human anatomy for them to be the best at what they do.
But because the internet is full of people who like to sit back and say that they could do something better than a f*cking OLYMPIC ATHLETE, we’re treated to wonderful tweets like this.
Alexa Moreno, otro ejemplo de pseudo “Atletas” que no debe de mandar la CONADE solo por llenar la cuota.

Which translates to:
“Alexa Moreno, another example of pseudo athletes sent by the CONADE [Mexico’s National Commission for Physical Culture and Sport] just to fullfill the quota.”
Alexa Moreno, a Mexican gymnast, is getting hated on by people like the moron above, for being “fat” and “out of shape.”
Despite the fact that she’s able to perform amazing feats of athleticism like this:
…bullies are still being total jerk faces.
“Exclusive pictures of Alexa Moreno at the end of her gymnastic routine.”
However, the internet wasn’t going to let a bunch of jabronis roast an elite, professional athlete.
I’d love to see anyone body-shaming Alexa Moreno do that badass floor routine she pulled off. She’s a tremendous athlete and cute as can be.
