Watch: Olivia Dunne Has Message for Her Fans

She's not afraid to speak her mind!

Olivia Dunne, the LSU gymnast, has become a household name in collegiate sports thanks to her impressive social media following. With nearly 7 million followers, she's one of the most-followed athletes in the game, and it's no surprise that she's also the highest-earning athlete in women's collegiate sports. But with fame and success, comes a downside. In a recent interview with the Today Show, Dunne was asked about the negative aspects of being a high-profile female athlete and if she's ever received any threatening comments from fans.

Dunne admitted that she has received "concerning" messages from some male followers and even spoke about an incident from last year that involved the police. Some have argued that the nature of her social media posts leads to such attention, but Dunne had a powerful response. "As a woman, you're not responsible for how a man looks at you and objectifies you. That's not a woman's responsibility," she said. Dunne's words are a reminder that women should not be held responsible for the actions of others, and it's a powerful message for young female athletes everywhere
