Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles has a no-nonsense approach to dealing with online critics.
The 20 -year-old gymnast retweeted a comment on Friday made by a viewer after she posted photographs of herself vacationing in Hawaii.
The person wrote, Seems like u have partied non stop for a year #trash #unfollow #suckyarolemodel.
Biles answered, Talk to me when you civilize for 14 years and pay 5 Olympic medals. I guess children would say otherwise. My time off is well deserved! Take a couple seats.
Fans instantly came to Biles justification 😛 TAGEND
After contesting in the Rio Olympics with Team USA in 2016, Biles appeared on ABCs Dancing With the Stars for season 24 where she finished in fourth home. In late 2016, she also exhausted a memoir, named Fortitude to Fly where she described what it was really like training for the Olympics.
I trained for six hours a day: three in the morning, three in the afternoon, she told Fox News earlier this year. So yeah, my days were a bit longer, but I still fit in school and everything.
She too credited faith in playing a vital role in her spirit to compete.
I go to church every Sunday, she mentioned. My mom, sister, and I would illuminate a candle and pray. I would pray to St. Sebastian, patron of athletes. I would pray to him so he can maintain me safe. I only felt like he was always there for me to cry and talk to. And you can always pray. I could be walking down wall street and no one may know it, but I could be praying. Its just super supportive for me.
