Olivia Dunne accused of being created by artificial intelligence after posting pictures from LSU pre-season gymnastics as the internet proves once again, they are the worst people ever
Man, people just can’t seem to leave LSU Gymnast Olivia Dunne alone on the internet.
Dunne made headlines again this week after posting new pictures during pre-season gymnastics training at LSU and was met with. a bunch of trolls stating that she wasn’t even real and likely computer generated, created by artificial intelligence.
The Sun – Louisiana State University gymnast Olivia Dunne has turned heads during pre-season gym training. The stunning influencer, 20, became a teenage millionaire on the back of her online fame. The 20-year-old from LSU is worth $2.3m and has taken college gymnastics by storm.
Her latest set of snaps has sent fans wild – with some accusing her of being created by artificial intelligence. Dunne is seen back in the gym, standing by the balance beams as she begins her pre-season routine.
Rocking a black leotard, she captioned the pics: “‘tis the pre-szn :)”
One fan wrote: “You’re not real. Deadass computer generated.”
And she’s recently had to defend her right to post whatever images she likes after a college basketball coach bemoaned her approach as a ‘step back’ for women.
Look, I love a good “this human is actually a robot” conspiracy theory. We (jokingly) danced with the devil when talking about Russell Wilson and Justin Herbert earlier this season making claims that they were in fact, both robots.
However with Olivia Dunne, I would just chalk this up as the haters being out in full force. This girl can’t catch a break, whether it’s other female athletes and coaches trying to diminish her, to publications like the New York Times completely ripping her apart for being an incredibly good looking and successful female athlete.
I don’t like any of it and will get into why, with examples of how great Dunne has been for women’s college sports and other female athletes looking to make money with the new NIL rules.
Olivia Dunne – LSU Gymnastics
Dunne is a trailblazer for women’s collegiate sports and has made an insane amount of money utilizing the new NIL rules for college athletes to perfection.
I guess people are jealous that she’s wildly successful and arguably the best looking woman on the planet who is also now a multi-millionaire? That seems extremely childish and makes no sense to me. Dunne is the embodiment of what should be celebrated in women’s sports. The narrative of someone who “brings women in sports down and sets them back” should never be mentioned in the same conversation.
The only thing bringing women in sports down and “setting them back” is other women, media outlets, and internet trolls diminishing women like Dunne who again, turned her collegiate gymnastics career at LSU into a multi-million dollar marketing machine.
Dunne has amassed over 8 million followers across social media platforms which has easily made her the top dog among college athletes benefitting from the NIL program. She has made over $2.3 million as a college student. That’s absolutely insane and should be celebrated by everyone and be used as THE perfect case study for college athletes of the future.
But no, we already had national media outlets blasting her because she’s good looking and one hell of a business woman and now, we have the dorks on the internet claiming she’s a robot created by artificial intelligence.
Luckily, it seems like other female athletes are on their way to following in Dunne’s footsteps, which proves yet again, how influential Dunne can be for women in college sports. Andreea Dragoi, a sophomore swimmer from Romania and currently on the women’s swim team at San Jose State University, has gone viral several times over the past few weeks.

The Spun – They’re calling her the next Olivia Dunne.
Andreea Dragoi, a sophomore swimmer from Romania, is building quite a following on social media..
Andreea went viral on social media on Thursday morning, thanks to some national posts.
She a personal best in the 100 fly (56.95) at the CSCAA Nationals last year. In high school, she attended International School of Bucharest and has competed in World and European Junior Championships.
When was the last time ANYONE was talking about Women’s College Swimming and Gymnastics? Why is it so hard for people realize how great this is for women’s sports? It’s fucking awesome and these women are total icons.
On Dragoi specifically, as someone who won the Club Championship in both butterfly and backstroke, I can say from experience they are the two hardest strokes in swimming.
Okay Fine: I won the Club Championship in Butterfly because the the guy in the lane next to me was disqualified for finishing with one hand. Regardless, a win is a win and the history books didn’t have me taking home the ship with an asterisk. Backstroke though? Please. I still got it too. Don’t even step my way.
Regardless, I hope Dunne and Dragoi continue to dominate their respective collegiate sports while making a shit ton of money and pissing off every jealous, stuck-up, fraud along the way.
People ask why I write about these stories and the answer is pretty simple: No one is is defending these girls and I’m tired of people trashing marketing geniuses and women in sports. That is not how progress is made and I’ll always stand on the athlete’s side over losers on the internet, fake feminists, and media publications like The New York Times.
