Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas left London with two gold medals, and came back to the United States to public ridicule from the first lady of the United States.
When Douglas visited “The Tonight Show” Monday night alongside Michelle Obama, host Jay Leno asked the winning athlete what she did to celebrate her gold medals. Douglas replied that she “splurged on an Egg McMuffin at McDonald’s.”
Obama, who is known for her “Let’s Move” heathy eating and fitness campaign, scolded the athlete who is in peak physical condition: “Don’t encourage [Leno], I’m sure it was on a whole wheat McMuffin…You are settin’ me back, Gabby.”
We say let Douglas — and any American Olympian — enjoy their Egg McMuffins in peace.
