Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens are two of the most elite athletes to have ever graced the world of sports. If Biles is standing at the pinnacle of Gymnastics, then Owens is one of the most staunch NFL players. Mr. and Mrs. Owens are indeed a force to be reckoned with. However, with glory and success comes constant social media scrutiny. Along similar lines, the power couple recently became the subject of internet perusal.
Gymnastics G.O.A.T. Simone Biles has clinched a multitude of awards in her vocation. From 7 Olympic medals to a Presidential Medal of Freedom, the gymnast framed a hoard full of accolades on her wall of fame. On the other hand, NFL safety quarterback Jonathan Owens has catapulted to success with his incredible prowess and is one of the most well-known names. However, now it became quite often that social media cult draws parallels between the fame that both athletes garnered in their respective arenas.
On Friday 12th May, Owens switched from his home team, Houston Texans, and signed a new contract with the Green Bay Packers. Taking to its Instagram handle, NHL’s official account posted Mr. and Mrs. Owens’ picture with the snapshot of Biles’ tweet on it. The tweet says, “GO PACK GO”.
Following this, many flocked to the comment section and left a series of gainsay comments. While one penned, “only know of him because of his girlfriend”, another wrote, “who tf is Jonathan Owens”. One even added, “Should I know who this is”.
With his years of dedication and unquantifiable passion, Owens made it to the NFL arena and is now garnering recognition from all directions. So, is it apt to pour in a series of negative comments for a stalwart athlete?
Nonetheless, amidst all the disregard, Owens’ fans brimmed the comment section with a hoard full of praises for him.
