Simone Biles Claps Back At DWTS: 'Smiling Doesn't Win You Gold Medals'
Many women don't like being told to smile, and might appreciate Simone Biles' response in the face of such an expectation.
When the judges started offering their critiques of the gymnast's performance Monday night on Dancing With the Stars, host Tom Bergeron interjected to note, "I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments—you didn't."
At that point Biles did smile, but she did so while replying, "Smiling doesn't win you gold medals." Mashable calls the response "perfect," while USA Today notes that the phrase should be put on a T-shirt.
