Simone Biles appeared to take aim at critics again after comments from her NFL husband Jonathan Owens sparked massive backlash online.
Owens, a safety for the Packers, said in a joint interview with 'The twistpodcast that he didn't know who gymnast Biles was before the pair started dating in 2020, and that he was the “catch” in their relationship.
Those comments led to heavy criticism of Owens as fans urged him to be more like Travis Kelce, and Biles has now addressed the naysayers on her X account.
“Are you ready yet?” she wrote on Saturday.
She previously posted a cheerful photo of her and Owens dancing on Instagram, captioning it “mood.” '

The couple started dating in 2020, got engaged in 2022 and married last spring in Mexico

The 28-year-old's comments came after co-host Channing Crowder asked, “How the hell did you pull Simone Biles,” to which the five-year veteran replied, “It's really how she pulled me.”
The couple started dating in 2020 after meeting on the dating app Raya while Owens was still a member of the Texans practice squad.
“I was literally on the app for a couple days, man, and it's like she shows up and I'm like, show me who this is,” Owens said. “She messaged me and this seems like a Tuesday and we texted back and forth and then we hung out on Friday….”
“She came over, she lived in the suburbs, so she had to drive about 45 minutes to get to me, and then the rest is history….”
Owens had claimed he was the 'catch' in his relationship with the gymnastics legend
When co-host Ryan Clark suggested that Owens was in fact the catch, rather than his four-time gold-winning wife, he agreed.
'I always say we, the men [are] the catchman,” Owens said. “I always say that.”
Biles added, “I know what I like, and I know what I want. Period of time.'
Owens' Packers improved to 7-8 on the season with a win over the Panthers on Sunday.
