Paige Spiranac has Olivia Dunne’s back.

Earlier this week, the NY Times ran a critical story featuring the 20-year-old LSU gymnast in which she revealed that she makes seven figures from NIL deals.

The Times wrote about how there is some worry female college athletes making so much money in NIL deals could be seen as “regressive” to women’s sports.

“Female college athletes are making millions thanks to their large social media followings. But some who have fought for equity in women’s sports worry that their brand building is regressive,

Spiranac, who has made a name for herself in the female sports/influencer space, fired back at the Times and other critics of Dunne.

“I’m so sick of women belittling accomplishments of other women because it’s done differently than they would. @livvydunne
is getting hate for making 2 million a year. She’s built a successful business (at 20) all while being a student-athlete. That’s badass.”

Dunne, for her part, doesn’t seem too bothered by the Times story, and hit back at the publication yesterday.

Considering Dunne’s NIL value is estimated at over $2 million/year, according to, she probably doesn’t care what the NY Times has to say.
