McKayla Maroney accuses former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse

Two-time Olympic medalist McKayla Maroney has accused former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar of molesting her for several years, starting when she was 13.

Maroney, 21, made the allegation early Wednesday morning in a Twitter post with the hashtag #MeToo, which women have been using recently to share stories of being sexually abused and harassed in the wake of multiple allegations against powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

“Everyone’s words over the past few days have been so inspiring to me,” Maroney wrote. “I know how hard it is to speak publicly about something so horrible, and so personal, because it’s happened to me too.
