After earning five medals at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, Simone Biles is taking a well-deserved year off, and when a commenter took issue with how she’s choosing to spend her time Biles was having none of it.
During a vacation in Hawaii, the gymnast posted a cheeky photo on Instagram Saturday, July 8, with the caption “resting beach face.”
User Sarah Nicole took issue with the post, writing an accusatory comment that included the hashtags, “#trash” and “#suckyassrolemodel.”
Biles clapped back on Instagram…
And publicly put the woman on blast in a tweet declaring the former follower was blocked.

You do you, girl! Take as much time off as you want, I think you’ve done MORE than enough to deserve it
