Simone Biles has hit back at those dissing her hair in a recent photo. The Olympic gymnast and five-time medalist made her cheering debut with the Houston Texans Sunday, Dec. 10 as the first honorary member of the team, according to the cheer team’s official Instagram page. While her hair was primped for the showing, it was sweated out from being styled in a bun during a four-hour practice the day before.

Instead of focusing on Biles’ excitement for her game, many chimed in on her tresses being out of place, echoing talk about her teammate Gabrielle Douglas during the 2016 Olympic Games.

But Biles didn’t stand for the criticism for long.
