Samoan coach Jerry Wallwork controversially criticised the worldwide weightlifting committee for allowing Hubbard to compete ahead of the Games.
Hubbard crushed rivals at the Australian International weightlifting competition in Melbourne in March 2017, making four new records.
Feagaiga Stowers took full advantage of Hubbard's misfortune, earning her nation a second gold medal of the day following Sanele Mao's triumph in the men's 105kg.
"A man is a person and a girl is actually a lady and I understand a lot of modifications have gone in the past Laurel Hubbard used to be male champion weightlifter", he said. "I wanted to give them something that reflected the best I could do and my only real regret today was that I was unable to show them", she said.
The Samoan coaches protested the presence of a biological male competing as a woman weightlifter, suggesting that despite his/her chosen gender identity he/she still has the anatomy and strength of a male.
Described as an "introverted character" by New Zealand's weightlifting high-performance director Simon Kent, Hubbard admitted she had anxious about the crowd's reaction prior to competition.
"At this stage we don't know the exact details of the injury", she told reporters.

It seems we won't have too long to wait now! Kate and William have chosen not to find out the sex of their baby before its birth. The announcement would only be made when William and Kate have informed Queen Elizabeth and other members of their families.
"Look, it would be untrue to say that the thought never crossed my mind", she said when asked if she was anxious about the crowds not applauding for her because she's trans.
Hubbard was seeking a Commonwealth Games record of 132kg.
Hubbard defended the decision to try to lift more weight than necessary, saying: "I think you have to be true to yourself, and I hope in this case that's what I've done".
Meanwhile, Australian Weightlifting Federation CEO Michael Keelan wrote to a number of governing bodies to express his concerns. "But there's no indication at all that they were anything other than absolutely fantastic".
Commentators have been shocked by the damage with Kiwi sporting identities pushing for Hubbard to hold the Kiwi flag into the closing ceremony earlier within the week.
"This is something that members have various opinions on and it's something the weightlifting community needs to have some robust debate, discussion, on", he said.
