Although many of the local Montana residents were excited for Nastia Liukin and her family to be hanging out in Big Sky Country, the trip wasn’t without a bit of controversy. One person lashed out at the Olympic gymnast and accused her of exploiting the great state of Montana for her own Instagram gain … but got a solid clap back from the star.
“It’s pretty disappointing to see Californian celebrities come to our beautiful state only to do a western/country/cowgirl/cowboy photo shoot in western hats and boots. Jussayin,” the harsh critic wrote.
Not backing down from the shade, Liukin personally answered the “fan” in her own Instagram comments:
“not a Californian 🙂 we actually own a home here in your / our beautiful state that we love so much.”
Liukin’s response was met with tons of likes from her true fans.
