People Dragged NBC For Not Giving Enough Coverage to Gymnast Star Trinity Thomas

"NBC, you're missing one Ms. Trinity Thomas."

Published August 21, 2017

Fans of rising gymnast star Trinity Thomas aren't having it. They jumped on Twitter over the weekend to blast NBC for not providing enough coverage of the 16-year-old sensation during the U.S. gymnastics championships.

Thomas finished a strong third in each of the balance beam and floor exercise events and fourth in the all-around competition, but for some inexplicable reason, NBC skipped many of her performances. And when they did finally put some cameras on her, it was during the vault — her weakest event.

Here are some no-chill tweets that people fired off at the network followed by footage of the teen superstar in the making doing her thing.

  1. People started out strongly urging NBC to air coverage of Trinity Thomas

    Hello ... is this thing on?

  2. And tweet by tweet, people got more and more annoyed

    Slacking on the job.

  3. That's when this fan lost it, evoking the names of other great gymnasts such as Simone Biles and Gabby Douglas

    Just do it!

  4. Others couldn't fathom how the network didn't show much of Trinity, but did show ...

    Explain yourself.

  5. When NBC did "finally" show Trinity, it wasn't during her best event

    DAMN!

  6. Fans did miss out on Trinity's brilliant floor and balance beam routines

    We're happy to see your performances now, Trinity, and look forward to seeing your progress.
