Tex Hollywood - November 11, 2022
Olivia Dunne was just included in a NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE about college athletes getting paid, thanks to the new Name and Likeness rule change where college athletes are allowed to monetize.
She is rumored to have made over 2 million dollars a year, not necessarily because of her gymnastics ability or her elite level in the sports, but because of her TikTok and social media following, which are largely there because she's a babe who can do gymnastics.
What I find interesting is that the NY Times wrote "Dunne, a petite blonde with a bright smile and a gymnast’s toned physique" reducing her to her body like a titty blog of the mid 00s, yet no one is cancelling them for objectifying or reducing the babe to her body.
The truth is that her gymnastics aren't that present on her feed, it's more influencer crap, so today she posted some training on the uneven bars, which is her specialty as her friends, team, or fans, cheered her on.
I find it impressive!
It turns out that even Paige Spiranac, another college athlete making 7 figures a year, came to the defense of people criticizing Olivia Dunne for being a babe and only making money for being. a babe, in a similar way that Paige Spiranac has done with golf. I don't know what there are so many haters, let babes be rewarded for being babes, and when if you can make millions so easily by just being yourself, why wouldn't you.
I’m so sick of women belittling accomplishments of other women because it’s done differently than they would. @livvydunne is getting hate for making 2 million a year. She’s built a successful business (at 20) all while being a student-athlete. That’s badass.
