Today Sky Sports in the UK hosted a live twitter Q&A with Beth Tweddle. Beth Tweddle was the first British gymnast to win a World Championship, in fact she was the first British gymnast to even win a medal at a World Champs, or a European Champs, she was also the first British woman to win an Olympic medal in Gymnastics.

But instead of the tweets directed at her being positive or asking informative questions she got asked about her looks, her sex life, her sexuality and after answering a question about when she started gymnastics, she got retweeted abusive messages about being a whore and a slut.
