Can A Clap Back Win You A Gold Medal? Simone Biles Deserves One!

Simone Biles just may deserve a medal for her response to why she had the resting bitch face on Monday’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’ (as if she didn’t have enough medals, awards, and recognitions already).

According to the HuffPost, during the judges’ comments, Biles seemed to exhibit a lack of enthusiasm as Carrie Ann Inaba critiqued her Paso Doble performance, comparing her dancing to a ‘metronome.’

Then host, Tom Bergeron, chimed in saying, “I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments, you didn’t.”

Since he tried to bring this to everyone’s attention including hers, the Olympic Gold Medalist decided to give him one little tip.

“Smiling doesn’t win you gold medals,” Biles said.


Even Bergeron knew he messed up after tweeting about Biles’ ‘crisp response’ to what he called a ‘clumsy question.’

Of course the reply was followed by a range of responses from audience members, viewers at home, and last but not least, a load of GIFs and memes in support of this gymnast’s ‘black girl magic.’

The medalist said she had tears in her eyes but pulled it together, in a comment to Entertainment Tonight.

“I am trying and I am being honest. But if they don’t see that, I don’t know what else more I can do,” Biles said.

Catch the Olympian in the semifinals of ‘DWTS’ at 8p.m. ET on ABC.
