That's messed up! Why would you make fun of someone who performed so beautifully and represented our country so well? She doesn't look like the rat anyway. Shame on you!

you should take this down tmz.
i love your sight but shes a 16 year old girl who didn't put herself in the public eye to be ridiculed. shes worked hard to compete for her country and shouldn't have to put up with being compared to a mouse on a website that most of her peers probably log onto.
my two cents

TMZ you have BAD habits. Why are you putting down a USA medalist? Instead of praising her for her accomplishments you compare her to a rat. No wonder the young girls in this country have self esteem problems, TMZ definitely contributes to eating disorders, etc.,

SHAME ON YOU!

Isn't there some sort of law against rooting against and making fun of someone under the age of 16? This girl has devoted her time talent and energy to winning on behalf of every American and you want to put her down?

Whats next? I know I know......why not put pictures of the troops that are serving for our freedom in Iraq picture up when they come home disfigured. All so you have the freedom to do this crap!

REALLY DISTASTEFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, TMZ. That was certainly unnecessary and rude. This young woman has performed exceptionally well, has behaved in a way to make America proud and she is rewarded by you in such a low fashion.

Again, unnecessary and rude.

You're making fun of a girl who has performed great, carried herself with class and made her country proud... yet, you parade Spencer and Heidi around on here like they are heroes? Stop trying to be outrageous Harvey, you self-hating media wh*re!
