Simone Biles has responded to the people who are trolling her over her wedding hair.

Biles, 26, is an American artistic gymnast who has won 32 Olympic and World Championship medals, which includes a staggering 23 gold.

Widely recognised as one of the greatest gymnasts in history – she’s set records and achieved feats that were once thought impossible.

But it’s Biles’ wedding, rather than her remarkable talent, that has recently been attracting attention.

Biles – now Biles Owens – tied the knot with her partner, Jonathan Owens, an American football safety for the Houston Texans, on April 22.

While many people have taken to social media and congratulated the sportswoman, others have taken to the comments and blasted her wedding hair.

Some trolls have criticised the styling of her hair being in a high ponytail and not ‘laying her edges’, reports MailOnline.

One of the negative comments reads: “I was like Simone Biles’ hair could not have been that bad, then I saw the pics.”

Biles has now responded to the criticism and defended her wedding hair look.

The 26-year-old said: “I think they also forget I live in Houston, Texas, and I sweat those out as soon as we stepped outside for pics.

“But they can keep complaining idc idc idc.”

Many of Biles’ fans have taken to the comments and rushed to support her, while encouraging her to ignore the negativity.

One fan writes: “You looked beautiful! Don’t listen to any of that noise.

“Continue to be the amazing woman and amazing role model you are to the younger generation following in your footsteps. Congratulations, beautiful!”

Another adds: “Congratulations to you and your husband. Ignore the noise and enjoy your life.”

While a third person pens: “Simone Biles is one of the top gymnasts we’ve ever seen, has overcome situations of abuse and other obstacles in her childhood, has defined her own success and found love and is now happily married… And y’all worried about her hair?!

“And not to make it about a man, but y’all be doing all that judging of her hair, and she’s found someone who loves her, as she is. Hairstyle and all.

“Can you say the same for you? Y’all put way too much emphasis on appearance for me.”

Many people are also praising Biles for having an affordable wedding.

The Olympic gold medallist wore a white ruffled gown for her special day and she revealed on social media that she actually picked it out just days before.

When answering questions about her nuptials, Biles said she had purchased the dress from an online clothing store called Selfie Leslie for just $120.

The sports star added that her shoes were from Amazon, however, she did admit they were ‘not comfy at all’.
