The fallout from the New York Times hit piece about Olivia Dunne continues.
The LSU gymnast clapped back at critical comments made in a New York Times article that took shots at how she made money off name, image and likeness deals. Dunne has millions of followers on TikTok and Instagram and posts about her moves on the uneven bars as well as other social posts in her day-to-day life.
The author took issue with how Dunne created a brand that pays her over $2 million per year.
In a video she posted to TikTok, Dunne could be seen in a LSU leotard and delivered a fiery new message to the article.
“Um, if you don’t like me that’s fine. But just, um, you know, watch your mouth,” the voiceover said.
Dunne made it clear she doesn’t feel bad for how she grew her brand.
“Seven figures,” she said, per NYT. “That is something I’m proud of. Especially since I’m a woman in college sports… There are no professional leagues for most women’s sports after college.”
Dunne, a junior going into the 2023 season, is also signed to one of the biggest agencies in WME Sports.
