«My most viral TikTok got 35.7 million views, which is crazy. I can’t even understand it, but I’m just showing off my gymnastics skills,» she added.
Dunne also spoke to SI about how to navigate the hate and bullying that comes with his popularity. The New Jersey native received some of the criticism in a New York Times article last year. She responded with another leotard photo.
«I think it’s important to defend yourself,» he told the outlet in April. «Maybe it’s the Jersey girl in me, but I think girls needed to know that it wasn’t okay, especially posting things that any other college student would post: a leotard, which is the required uniform to be a gymnast. It’s ridiculous. «
