She continued, "I’m heartbroken as well. It’s completely out of my control. So I apologize. Have a golden night."
Many fans were quick to support the star. One person tweeted, "The GOAT stays classy and considerate. We love you!!" Another fan responded, "You are loved and respected by those who matter."
Per Essentially Sports, the event was called off in Oklahoma and Texas, and while some outlets have reported that this was due to a scheduling conflict, Athleta, the presenting sponsor, hasn't confirmed the reason behind these cancellations. However, it looks like the remaining shows are still a go.
After the official kickoff in Tucson, Arizona, earlier this month, Biles and her all-star team of gymnasts (including Jordan Chiles, Jade Carey and Laurie Hernandez) have been stopping at different cities to showcase their talent. Per the official website, the tour “is a celebration of powerful female athletes who, together, are a united force proudly representing the sport of women’s gymnastics and inspiring the next generation of athletes.”
Biles also revealed in an official statement, "I love the sport of gymnastics and wanted to help create a show that celebrates the pure joy of performing, I believe there is gold inside of us all and it’s time to let that gold shine.” And *cue round of applause.*
Clearly, no troll can dim Simone's shine.
