Heavy A DWTS alum is speaking out after people criticized her wedding look.

Season 24 semi-finalist Simone Biles has entered the chat.

The Olympic gold medalist and former “Dancing With the Stars” competitor spoke out after receiving criticism about how she wore her hair on her wedding day.

While dozens of people commented on Biles’ social media posts, sending their congratulatory messages and telling her that she looked beautiful, there was at least one person who didn’t approve of how Biles was wearing her hair — and the bride had something to say about it.

“Simone Biles is one of THEE top gymnasts we’ve ever seen, has overcame 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…..?!” someone wrote, defending Biles.

“I think they also forget i live in HOUSTON TEXAS & I sweat those out!! soon as we stepped outside for pics. But they can keep complaining idc idc idc,” Biles responded. The original tweet appears to have been deleted.
