Not all the comments were positive.
According to a statement from the Cleveland Division of Police and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office, Biles-Thomas, who is on active duty with the Army, was arrested at Fort Stewart, Ga., related to the Dec. 31 incident. Authorities claim an "uninvited group" entered the rented house and "an altercation ensued" between them and the invited guests, which led to gunfire.
Delvante Johnson, 19, Toshaun Banks, 21, and Devaughn Gibson, 23, were all killed. Biles-Thomas has been charged with six counts of murder, three counts of voluntary manslaughter, five counts of felonious assault and one count of perjury after an eight-month investigation.
According to CBS News, Biles and Biles-Thomas were both born in Columbus, Oh., but they grew up in separate households with different relatives. She was adopted by her grandparents and raised in Houston.
Biles, part of the gold-medal-winning team dubbed the "Final Five" at the 2016 Summer Olympics, has continued to break records in her sport since. Earlier this month, she became the first person in history to land a double twisting, double somersault in competition at the U.S. Gymnastics Championship.
In addition to many professional successes, Biles has also become a pop culture fixture, competing on Dancing With the Stars in 2017, appearing on Lip Sync Battle in 2016 and attending the 2017 Golden Globes.
