Suni Lee bans ‘hateful’ Instagram feedback on pic with boyfriend


Suni Lee has disabled feedback on an Instagram picture along with her boyfriend after receiving hateful messages about being in an interracial relationship with USC soccer participant Jaylin Smith.

Lee, a gold medalist on the 2020 Olympics and present gymnast at Auburn, said earlier this month that she obtained “so much hate” after the couple went public.

“We’re really happy. I don’t think there’s any more to it than that. I think it should just be normalized,” Lee told TMZ Sports.

Asked about disabling feedback on her Instagram, Lee mentioned, “I’ve gotten a lot of support. I’m really thankful.”

“Right now I’m just focusing on college gymnastics,” Lee mentioned, when requested if she is getting ready for future Olympics. “We compete every weekend so I’m really excited for that.”

Smith is a freshman security at USC who appeared in 5 video games and recorded one interception and one pressured fumble this previous season.
