Twitterstorm as Piers Morgan Calls US Gymnast Simone Biles 'Selfish' Over Olympic Event Pullout
So, to sum up today’s big Simone Biles debate, snowflake Twitter is 100% adamant that walking out on teammates at work is brave, strong, inspiring and iconic - and anyone who does it should be celebrated as one of the world’s great heroes….— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 28, 2021
Good to know. 👇 pic.twitter.com/HclTrBbfY3
You can either listen to snowflake Twitter, @Simone_Biles - or listen to me. You're a great champion, & great champions get back on their feet when they get knocked down. So, re-engage in these Games, win Gold, & inspire with the power of resilience not resignation. Go for it. 👊 pic.twitter.com/RFmV37PX1F— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 28, 2021
Are ‘mental health issues’ now the go-to excuse for any poor performance in elite sport? What a joke.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 27, 2021
Just admit you did badly, made mistakes, and will strive to do better next time.
Kids need strong role models not this nonsense.
Between @aaron_reitz & @piersmorgan I don't know whose worst... a national embarrassment is grown men targeting a young OUTSTANDING athlete then cowardly back track what they "really meant." How about @tedcruz fleeing to mexico in the midst of a freeze being a true embarrassment?— MsRenee (@MsReneeBeingMe) July 28, 2021
Hi @PiersMorgan, I'm on #Prozac for #anxiety. I'm a single woman. I'm white so not your usual target... If you run out of black women to abuse feel free to take a pop. #SimoneBiles is a hero who knows and speaks her truth. You could learn from her. Sadly, you won't. #PiersMorgan— Felicity Baumflough (not my real name) (@Baumflough) July 28, 2021
The best thing we can all do with Piers Morgan’s inevitable article on Simone Biles is to ignore it.— Adam Fare 💙 (@adamfare1996) July 28, 2021
Don’t share it, don’t click on the link, don’t comment on it.
We already know what it’s going to be like, he wants us to be outraged & share it around.
If we ignore it, he loses.
.@piersmorgan on behalf of Black America: F%&K YOU and keep #SimoneBiles name out racist raggedy a$% mouth. You should take mental health cues from these far SUPERIOR Black women who trigger you so much and go see a therapist about your anger, resentment & feelings of inadequacy. pic.twitter.com/haF6oOS5W9— BlackWomenViews Media (@blackwomenviews) July 28, 2021
"When you call yourself the GOAT in sport, you can't then quit the moment things get tough or you make a mistake. Something that I'm sure Simone Biles, in her heart, must realise because she's a great champion and great champions just don't do that".
"Head star… hmmm, there's that GOAT ego rearing its head again. But if you're going to call yourself the Greatest of All Time and 'head star' then you're putting a lot of that pressure on yourself, aren't you?"
"I feel like I'm also not having as much fun. This Olympic Games, I wanted it to be for myself, but I came in and I felt like I was still doing it for other people. It hurts my heart that doing what I love has been kind of taken away from me to please other people", she added.
