Simone Biles Responds to USA Gymnastics' Birthday Greeting with Clap Back Demanding Nassar Scandal Investigation

Simone Biles demanded an “independent investigation” for the Nassar scandal as a response to USA Gymnastics’ warm birthday greeting on Twitter.

Gymnast Simone Biles may be celebrating her birthday, but she hasn’t forgotten about the Nassar scandal that is yet to be investigated.

BILES RESPONDS TO HER BIRTHDAY GREETING

Last March 14, USA Gymnastics’ Twitter account posted a birthday greeting for Biles, calling her “the most decorated gymnast of all time” alongside a video of the athlete’s performance.

The post read: “We know you will only continue to amaze us.” However, Biles was not impressed and clapped back:

“How about you amaze me and do the right thing.” 

Biles celebrated her birthday with an Instagram photo that featured her in a peach-colored blouse, ripped jeans, and black heels while sitting on a brick wall.

She also reposted several Instagram stories that were uploaded by her friends, in honor of her special day.

NASSAR INCIDENT

Biles is not just a strong and talented gymnast, but also a brave and outspoken individual who went up against her peers.

She spoke about the abuse she experienced with Larry Nassar, who was convicted of sexual misconduct among children and older girls.

The Olympic athlete called out USA Gymnastics to investigate and take necessary steps, but instead, the organization offered a $215 settlement for the accused’s victims.

USAG reportedly put investigations regarding the case on hold despite knowing that Biles was among the athletes assaulted by Nassar in 2015.

The Olympics is set to happen despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has affected over 85 countries and thousands of people.

In 2019, the gymnast tweeted about the “pain” she felt since the incident and how much an investigation on the matter was needed.

President and CEO of USAG Li Li Leung said that he was “surprised, deeply saddened, and outraged” after knowing Biles was among those who were part of the 2015 notification.

2020 OLYMPICS

Biles is in the middle of training for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where she is set to represent the country after her record-breaking performance in the US Championships.

When asked about a new vault stunt performance at the Olympics, Biles said “no” and discussed risk against reward.

She said:

“In gymnastics, there is a risk factor -- risk vs. reward. Gymnastics can be a dangerous sport so you have to be smart.”

The Olympics is set to happen despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has affected over 85 countries and thousands of people.
