This was not the 1st egregious act by the Women’s Technical Committee

Apparently. Liu Xuan was also "Simone Bile'd" by the Technical Committee before. This is taken from her Wikipedia article:

Liu was the first female gymnast to perform a one-arm giant swing on the uneven bars; she also performed this skill into a Geinger release move. The skill is named after her in the Code of Points, but because it was considered too risky for women, it was given a low difficulty rating to discourage gymnasts from attempting it. As a result, Liu stopped performing it after the 1996 Olympics.

This is a clip of that move, which is rated B. The skills is just the 1 arm to handstand, the Geinger wasn't included as part of the skill.
