After Simone Biles announced she was pulling out of the Olympics this year due to mental health.
For some reason a large group of people with ZERO gold medals watching the Olympics on their couch felt like they had a right to call her unpatriotic and weak.
Well at least we got to see who the real pathetic ones were.
Luckily others came out and supported Simone to the point where she was able to tweet this:
the outpouring love & support I’ve received has made me realize I’m more than my accomplishments and gymnastics which I never truly believed before. 🤍

Celebrities came out in support of Simone as well:
When you win the USA 5 Gold Medals and 1 Silver Medal, you deserve to take some time for yourself. @Simone_Biles, WE LOVE YOU ❤️✨

I can’t imagine the pressure Simone has been feeling. Sending her SO much love. It easy to forget she’s still human. WE LOVE YOU.
