"First I want to say thank you everyone for all your support," Douglas shared on Twitter. "It's a huge honor for me to be able to represent #TeamUSA."
"In response to a few tweets I saw tonight, I always stand at attention out of respect for our country whenever the national anthem is played," she added. "I never meant any disrespect and apologize if I offended anyone."
"I'm so overwhelmed at what our team accomplished today," Douglas continued, "and overjoyed that we were able to bring home another gold for our country!"
"The Final Five" U.S. women's gymnastics team -- Douglas, Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez -- took home the gold in the team final competition on Tuesday by a commanding margin of nearly eight points (a record in the era of the open-ended scoring system), with a total score of 184.897.
