Olumpic medalist Louis Smith has been slammed
for posting a provocative photo of a 16-year-old
gymnast online. Louis, 27, shared a close-up of
US gymnast Carly Patterson’s bum cheeks in a
red leotard before gushing, “My sport has its
moments,” on Instagram.
The image of Carly Patterson, now 28, was
taken at the Athens Olympic Games when she
was just 16 – something the Great Britain star
claimed he was unaware of.
It didn’t take long for fans to claim the photo
was sexist, and slam him but despite that he
refused to apologize, saying he won’t apologize
unless Carly Patterson finds it offensive. Carly
tweeted that she was okay with the post later
