Zac Efron gave Team USA gymnast and super fan Simone Biles the surprise of a lifetime when he showed up at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Tuesday (August 16) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 28-year-old actor opened up about the experience and how he was able to keep it a secret from the girls while making an appearance on the Today Show.

Zac said that beforehand he was “kind of getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet.”

“They won gold medals, they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was like hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn’t know what to think,” Zac explained, who could be seen tearing up during the medal ceremony before meeting the girls.

He added, “Their story just blew my mind. When I found out Simone and this team were fans, I was like, ‘What kind of guy am I if I don’t show up?’”

Gabby Douglas Tearfully Responds to Internet Haters

Gabby Douglas has been facing criticism from Internet bullies during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics and she’s now speaking out about how it’s affecting her.

Early in the games, the 20-year-old gymnast issued an apology after not placing her hand on her heart during the national anthem but haters have also commented on her appearance, her support of fellow teammates and her patriotism.

“When they talk about my hair or me not putting my hand up on my heart or me being very salty in the stands, they’re really criticizing me, and it doesn’t really feel good. It was a little bit hurtful,” Gabby tearfully told the Washington Post.

She added, “Everything I’ve gone through has been a lot this time around and I apologize if [I seemed] really mad in the stands. I wasn’t. I was supporting Aly. And I always will support them and respect them in everything they do. I never want anyone to take it as I was jealous or I wanted attention. Never. I support them, and I’m sorry that I wasn’t showing it. I’ve been through a lot. I still love them. I still love the people who love me. Still love them who hate me. I’m just going to stand on that.”

Gabby Douglas Is Being 'Tormented' By Internet Bullies, Her Mom Says

Internet bullies are seeming to find everything wrong with Gabby Douglas at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

The 20-year-old gymnast and Final Five team member has been attacked online following the Team Finals, according to her mom Natalie.

“She’s had to deal with people criticizing her hair, or people accusing her of bleaching her skin. They said she had breast enhancements, they said she wasn’t smiling enough, she’s unpatriotic. Then it went to not supporting your team mates. Now you’re “Crabby Gabby”,” Natalie said in an interview, via Reuters.

She added, “We’ve been brought to many tears because I don’t know what she’s done to warrant such an attack. To me it looks like she is being bullied…They keep attacking her about not smiling but they don’t know what she is dealing with. If they did, this would not be a conversation. They would (understand). But this is not the time or place to tell that story.”

Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis tweeted her support to Gabby after hearing of the news. Read it below:
