When it comes to cyber bullying, no one is off limits. Take Olympic Gymnist Simone Biles for example. While, the 20-year-old holds 5 Olympic medals (four of which are gold) and prides herself on being a body positive role model for children around the world. She often becomes a target for body shaming and harsh critics.

Most recently, the athlete shared a selfie of herself holding a cup with “Hawaii” written on the outside. “Resting beach face,” Biles quipped.

While the caption seemed innocent enough, one user used the opportunity to attack Biles, labeling her a poor role model.

In response Biles wrote: “Talk to me when you train for 14 years and earn 5 Olympic medals. I think kids would say otherwise. My year off is well deserved!  Take a couple seats.”

““Comments like this have me shook. I really wanted to blur her name out so she doesn’t get attention. but it is what it is. #BLOCK,” she added via Twitter.
