Robbed! Twitter Erupts After Laurie Hernandez Gets a Silver After Near-Perfect Beam Routine

By: Maria Mercedes Lara

Laurie Hernandez took home the silver in the individual beam finals at the Rio Olympics, and a lot of people are not happy.

The 16-year-old gymnast delivered a stellar routine on Monday but got a score of 15.333, pretty much on-par with her qualifier score from last Sunday. Sanne Wevers from the Netherlands held out at the top spot with a score of 15.466, but many fans thought that Hernandez deserved to be in the top spot. In fact, Hernandez's coaches submitted a request for an inquiry into the score – a process that involves the judges going back at their scores and showing what deductions they made and why.

Sadly, the inquiry was rejected, holding Hernandez's score at 15.333. By the end of the competition, she was firmly in the silver spot, but fans on Twitter were not having it.

Read on for some of the shocked (and angry) reactions to Hernandez's score.
