Nassar is the school's former sports doctor who is accused of sexually assaulting at least 144 female athletes both there and with USA Gymnastics, according to MLive.

She went on to name gymnasts Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber, two members of the 2012 Olympics. In her blog post titled, "To The Gymnastics Community", Nastia shared her support for other women including McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, and many others following the issuing of their victim-impact statements in court. Numerous women are also condemning USA Gymnastics and MSU for their poor handling of the allegations against Nassar.

The NCAA is now launching an investigation of Michigan State University's handling of the case, and three top leaders at USA Gymnastics have resigned as well.

Lynn Raisman wrote Saturday on her Twitter social media account, "Dear Tom Izzo, I'm sorry it's been a hard week for you".

Simon is under intense pressure to resign, with calls for her to step down coming from students, some faculty members and at least one board member.
