Simone Biles has become all too familiar with Internet trolls, but the good news is, the Olympian has mastered putting the haters in their place.
Over the weekend, a social media user had the nerve to question Biles’ ability to be a role model for young kids around the world. “It seems like you have partied non stop for a year,” the critic tweeted. “#trash #unfollow #suckyassrolemodel.”
The comment did not sit well with the athlete, who quickly fired back with this response. “Talk to me when you train for 14 years and earn 5 Olympic Medals. I think kids would say otherwise. My year off is well deserved! Take a couple seats.”
Biles then shared a screenshot of the comment and posted this response:
Throughout Bile’s career in the spotlight, the 20-year-old has been hit with critics from every angle. Back in December 2016, the athlete blasted haters making negative comments about her muscular physique. “You all can judge my body all you want, but at the end of the day it’s MY body. I love it & I’m comfortable in my skin,” she wrote.
