Olympic gymnast Simone Biles is weekend or GTFO right now. The 23-year-old gymnast, now the world’s most-decorated, marked the end of the working week with a giant tequila shout-out on her Instagram today, with those 3.9 million followers getting a reminder – Simone might work hard, but the 30-time Olympic and World medalist is play hard, too. On Friday, Simone updated already tequila-in-hand as she hit up a colorful bar spot with cosmetologist pal Britaani Powe. Check out the alcohol action below.
Scroll for the drinks. Simone, who has been big-time making night-out headlines with NFL player boyfriend Jonathan Owens this month, kept her “boo” out of it. This was a girl’s night out and a stylish one, too.
The photo, taken amid multicolor painted brick walls and likewise-colorful tables, showed Simone and her pal celebrating the weekend and both holding up their drinks. Simone, in a tight black top and wearing shredded jeans flashing her toned thighs, threw out her biggest smile, plus a caption – witty as usual.
Simone, clearly only eyeing up the booze, wrote: “But first, Tequila!” Over 16,000 likes poured in before the post was 30 minutes old, but Biles was faced with something she’s had to put with a fair amount recently. The COVID police, noticing Simone’s many unmasked group interactions of late, was quick to drag the gymnast out. This, as the U.S. death told for COVID reaches its highest levels ever, topping 3,000 a day.
“But first, COVID,” a fan replied, with another replying: “But first, social distancing.”
Simone likewise faced backlash with a Texas WAGS group shot posted in late November. The fun snap now sees over 100 users liking a comment reading: “Wear a mask please. Thank you. ?”
“So, Covid is over in Texas?” another popular reply read. Simone does not, however, see her headline-making limited to mask-wearing. The star has been in the news for her LGBTQ-friendly Uber Eats ad, backlash she faced over it, plus being a plucky girl and clapping back to right-wing Christian groups.
Simone has been powering up and with all the right people. On December 9, the Ohio native took to Twitter to shout out her attendance with prestigious Forbes magazine, writing:
“So happy to be a part of this year’s
Power Women’s Summit along with so many other amazing women. It airs virtually today, starting at 11am ET. Register and watch at http://Forbes.com.”
Biles, who admitted she “cried” when she found out the 2020 Tokyo Olympics had been canceled, has not, however, stopped the wowing. Scroll for the mind-blowing Handstand Challenge.
