Gold medalist Simone Biles won’t take crap from anyone, and we love it.
We, of course, think it is ridiculous that people make unnecessary comments towards her in the first place, but she always seems to have the perfect response.
The particular comment that sparked Biles’ reaction was from a user who accused her of partying too much. Just because she is taking some time from gymnastics? Why do people have to be so critical of everything?
Here’s what Simone had to say about the situation.

You tell her, Simone!
Simone also had a really fantastic clapback during this past season of Dancing with the Stars. When host Tom Bergeron asked her why she wasn’t smiling, she responded
“Smiling doesn’t win you gold medals.”
The US Olympic girls have pretty amazing strength on and off the floor. Simone’s teammate Aly Raisman has become a body positivity activist, ever since a TSA agent told her she didn’t look muscular enough to be a gymnast.
We love the strength and wisdom that these girls possess, and yearn for the day when they won’t have to defend every single action!
