(MEREDITH) -- America's most decorated gymnast, Simone Biles, gets a gold medal for handling Twitter trolls. Biles has been tweeting vacation pictures to her 959,000 followers, showing the gymnast relaxing on the beach or drinking a smoothie.

One follower wasn't happy seeing Biles taking some time off. In a reply to Biles' tweet, she wrote, "Seems like u have partied non stop for a year #trash #unfollow"

Biles' response had her fans going crazy. She replied to the tweet, saying "Talk to me when you train for 14 years and earn 5 Olympic Medals. I think kids would say otherwise. My year off is well deserved! Take a couple seats." Then Biles tweeted screenshots of the conversation.

Her followers were quick to show their support for the athlete, praising Biles accomplishments, and chastising the Twitter trolls.
