The US gymnastics team fangirled hard when Taylor Swift tweeted at them
Everyone is obsessed with the US women's gymnastics team (aka the Final Five) - including Taylor Swift.
Not even the ongoing Kanye-Kardashian, Calvin Harris, and Hiddleswift controversies could bar Taylor from sending out a congratulatory tweet when Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez, Gabby Douglas, and Madison Kocian dominated the competition by a massive 8-point margin in the gymnastics team final this week.
When the gymnasts found out about the tweet, they were floored, BuzzFeed reports. Coach Aimee Boorman replied to Taylor, writing, "I just showed the girls and they about passed out from excitement. Thanks for your support!" She also shared an adorable photo of Biles' and Raisman's reactions:
The gymnasts themselves also took to Twitter to thank the pop star for her kind words. Raisman even invited Swift on a shopping trip.
Woohoo! Thank you!?????? https://t.co/Wm0mjt9guw- Laurie Hernandez ? (@lzhernandez02) August 10, 2016
