In a statement posted to Instagram on Tuesday, gymnast Gaby Douglas apologized to teammate Aly Raisman for her initial response to Raisman's sexual abuse story.
Dr. Larry Nassar is charged with molesting seven girls under the guise of treatment at his home and a campus clinic.
London 2012 champion Douglas said: "I didn't publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and some things were extremely painful". Other charges were dismissed or reduced as part of a plea agreement Larry Nasser made with MI prosecutors.
"I didn't view my comments as victim shaming because I know that no matter what you wear it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you".
"It is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy".
Raisman offered the following thoughts to Nassar's guilty plead today.
Douglas has apologized repeatedly since calling out Raisman, her former teammate, on Twitter after Raisman addressed those who have criticized her for doing a "sexy photoshoot" with Sports Illustrated earlier this year.

The night after the Tate murders, members of the family randomly murdered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca . That was later changed to life in prison after California abolished the death penalty.
In an interview with CBS' 60 Minutes that aired November 12, Raisman alleged she was one of the gymnasts who was sexually abused by Nassar.
The post drew ire from her 2016 teammate Simone Biles, who captured the tweet in a screenshot.
"Larry is disgusting. Larry is a MONSTER not a doctor", she wrote.
"I don't believe there was anything honest in what Larry said, other than his desire to refocus the attention on the good that he believed he did today". Regardless of what you wear, abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable. i am WITH you.
The Associated Press left messages seeking comment from MSU, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee. The organization called Nassar's conduct " appalling and we are very sorry that any athlete has been harmed during her or his gymnastics career".
The former USA Gymnastics team doctor at the center of a sexual assault scandal, pleaded guilty Wednesday to multiple counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in a MI court.
Nassar plead guilty to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County Circuit Court, according to Detroit News, and is expected to face at least 25 years in prison.
