Former UFC champ and WWE star, Ronda Rousey, is not having it with the social media users who are poking fun at veteran Team USA gymnast Simeone Biles. Biles withdrew from the team final citing mental health condition as her last vault showed that she was struggling with something. The agony was not physical, but it denied the 24-year-old a perfect landing.
Despite not having one of the best gymnasts of all time by their side, Team USA managed to win bronze. Russia won gold and that’s when the trolls began targeting Biles.
Ronda Rousey took to Twitter to school the critics. The veteran martial artist said that people cannot judge Biles since they are not in her shoes and are clueless about what is going on with her at Tokyo 2020. Rousey concluded: “She’s doing the absolute best she can given the situation she’s in.”
Everyone judging @Simone_Biles doesnt know their foot from their asshole when it comes to being in her position.Shes on the Olympic team while you’re on Twitter.Whatever is going on cannot be grasped from outside.She’s doing the absolute best she can given the situation she’s in.

Simeone Biles also opened up about her decision a few hours after the USA grabbed second spot in team gymnast.
“Physically, I feel good. Emotionally it varies on the time and moment. Coming to the Olympics and being head star isn’t an easy feat,” Biles said. “I’m OK, just super frustrated, but super proud of these girls and now we’re silver medalists,” Biles said. “Something we’ll cherish forever. We hope America still loves us.”
