Simone Biles confused by the cancellation

The tour saw their events in Oklahoma City and Antonio Tx being canceled due to reasons which the public is not aware of. As the events were called off, it left many people helpless as they were not getting refunds for their tickets. Thus, fans were angry at this situation.

Moreover, Biles spoke about not knowing the situation; while knowing it only when the fans knew as well. Being the chief leader of the event, she would be disappointed to know that the event was called off.

Biles seems to be in the news in recent times for different reasons. Her withdrawal from the Tokyo Olympics gymnastics events made her face a lot of criticism. However, this tour helped her to relax after a strenuous schedule.
