Simone Biles Blasts Instagram User Who Called Her a Bad Role Model: ‘My Year Off Is Well Deserved'

Tough break! Simone Biles blasted an Instagram user who criticized her for posting a photo of herself on vacation holding a beverage.

The Olympian, 20, shared a picture of herself on Saturday, July 8, pursing her lips and showing off a colorful cup with “Hawaii” written on it. Biles captioned the photo: “Resting beach face.”

One user commented to let the gymnast know they took issue with her vacation. “Seems like u have partied non stop for a year,” the Instagram user wrote. "#trash #unfollow #suckya—role model.”

Biles quickly responded to the comment, explaining that she has every right to take time to unwind. “Talk to me when you train for 14 years and earn 5 Olympic medals,” she wrote. "I think kids would say otherwise. My year off is well deserved! Take a couple seats.”
