While it's difficult to look at Biles and imagine someone offering up anything other than admiration for the athletic physique that helped her win four gold medals in Rio over the summer, some on social media inexplicably responded to recent pics she shared with words like "fat" and "ugly."

Well, she has some words for them, too.
