Simone Biles

Simone Biles could hardly believe that things would return to her coincidentally. Things that she feared most. It is the kangaroo court on social media that keeps judging her, irrespective of the situation. Just a few weeks ago, Simone spoke on it at length in the Call Her Daddy podcast. She explained, “It’s like praise everyone, get everything for everyone, and just like sacrifice my body at all costs. And you land on the mat and you’re thinking, what is Twitter saying? Yeah.” Apart from the pressure of not being able to fulfill expectations, that statement distinctly revealed her bitter memories of social media. But her latest post shows, it remains as bitter.

Simone Biles came up on the X again, but not just talking about her mind this time. Rather, she was disgusted apparently at the way people put forward unwarranted opinions or comments.

On May 1, Simone Biles penned, “X is a scary a** place” to flaunt her emotions publicly. It could be the outburst because of the public scrutiny the couple has been going through after Jonathan Owens’ Pivot podcast. Allegedly, his ‘catch’ comment invited flak for being not respectful to his wife. However, Simone didn’t pay heed to such allegations for a duration. Rather, she counted the conversation as JO’s way to ‘be himself’. But things touched the upper ceiling when the Olympian realized what her ’boo’ had been going through all this while.

Opening about her emotional stance on such an attack, Simone Biles claimed, “One night I broke down, and I’m like, why are you guys talking about my husband like this? Yeah. Like you don’t know him.” Believing Jonathan the ‘nicest guy’, Mrs. Owens put a public post on her IG handle, alerting the haters. All these she carried out despite her manager’s prohibition.

The fear was that entering such a blame game could tarnish Simone’s minutely maintained public image. But things may not have shown any positive direction, and that forced the Olympian to take a stand again. However, as Simone mentioned in her Call Her Daddy podcast, this is not the first time she has been subjected to public scrutiny. And that was much before her mental health crisis during the Tokyo Olympics.

Simone Biles was slammed for her time off the mat
The Rio Olympics cemented Simone Biles’ name along with the legends. Her five medals-victory in the Brazilian capital was a tale that seemed to be a dream to anyone. However, while enjoying such fame, Simone Biles came under a public backlash because of one of her IG posts she made seven years back. To several followers, her ‘resting beach face’ did not sit well. Rather, they termed it in bad taste. One such comment went as, “Seems like u have partied non stop for a year #trash #unfollow #suckya**rolemodel.” Simone Biles did her best by maintaining her sanity despite facing such a harsh attack.

“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.” She stood firm in front of the attack. But the damage was already done. Her subsequent post on X read, “Comments like this have me shook. I really wanted to blur her name out so she doesn’t get attention. but it is what it is… #BLOCK”. Again, she went through a similar experience. Even seven years later, things still seem to be unchanged.
