Simone Biles Has a Savage Comeback After Being Asked Why She’s Not Smiling
Olympic gold medalist, Zac Efron enthusiast, and all-around superstar Simone Biles is currently crushing it on Dancing With the Stars, and after her second performance on Monday night’s show, Simone made the horrible mistake of not smiling during her critiques. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba gave the 20-year-old some mixed reviews, after which host Tom Bergeron said, “I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments . . . you didn’t.” In a moment of sheer brilliance and feminist badassery, Simone shrugged and remarked, “Smiling doesn’t win you gold medals.” A QUEEN.
Simone later addressed her savage comment — which won her tons of support from fans on social media — telling ET, “I feel like everyone has their own opinion, clearly, and I feel it’s just how you take it,” adding, “I feel like I am trying, I am being honest, but if they don’t see that, I don’t know what more I can do.” Simone is no stranger to clapping back at haters, but this really seems like a win for any woman who has been told to smile by a clueless guy.
