Simone Biles gets a picture with her friend and posts it with a hilarious caption

In an Instagram post dated 4th July 2016, Simone Biles posted a picture of her beside her guy friend, American Footballer Reese Mason. But, this seemingly normal picture evolved into something funny all thanks to Simone’s caption. Her caption read, “sometimes you just need a tall friend with a big truck”. But, to further clarify the height differences between the two buddies Simone decided to perch up on the vehicle’s footrest. And, still, she was not at the same height as him!

Both the athletes have major height differences. Reese is an American football payer and stands at around 1.90m while our petite gymnast is only 1.42 m. The commenters on the post wasted no time speaking about this contrast.

One comment read, “When you are so short you need to stand on a truck”. And,  another one said, “Look how small compared to the truck!

Simone is a powerhouse in every sense

In 2017 she stood up against her body shamers, her naysayers. In 2021, she proved to the world that taking time off for mental health is not a weakness.
