Simone Biles sure does know how to clap back.

Following the Olympian’s performance on Dancing with the Stars on Monday night, the judges had a few things to say about the star’s facial expressions. Biles, however, had one hell of a comeback.

First, Julianne Hough commented, “I don’t know if the smile is authentic. I want to see rawness come out.”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba then said, “You let out your signature smile after you did your trick, which was great… [but] I felt you uncertain a little bit. Be careful. Sometimes you dance like a metronome, you’re so on the beat. I want to see if you can play a little bit, holding and extending.”

While being criticized, the Columbus native kept a stoic look on her face, but lost her control once host Tom Bergeron said, “I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments but you didn’t.”

That’s when that athlete fired back, “Smiling doesn’t win you gold medals.”

Following the show, Simone addressed the now-viral comment and revealed to Entertainment Tonight, “I feel like everyone has their own opinion, clearly, and I feel it’s just how you take it. I feel like I am trying, I am being honest, but if they don’t see that, I don’t know what more I can do.”

Simone then admitted that while being criticized by the judges, she almost started crying. “I had tears in my eyes,” she told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “I almost ran to the bathroom at one point, but I pulled it together.”

Following the onstage controversy, fans took to Twitter to not only praise the gymnast for speaking up, but to slam the judges for being so harsh.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
