So incredulous was Biles that she took to Instagram to post her account of the situation. Which is still very eligible for meme gold, we should add.
It’s the “No I’m good I’m 25” part that makes us ki-ki. Again, this is SIMONE BILES! Granted, she wasn’t wearing a leotard, nor was she draped in shiny medallions, but c’mon, fam.
Biles did circle back to say, “The other flight attendant gave me a mimosa so we’re in the clear,” although this attendant did ask if she was legal drinking age.
