The video was posted leading up to the balance beam final, where Simone won the third place spot.
Taylor is overheard saying that “throughout the last week, her voice has been as significant as her talents. Her honesty as beautiful as the perfection that had long been her signature.”
“But don’t you see, she is perfectly human,” she continues. “And that is what makes it so easy to call her a hero.”
After seeing the clip on social media, Simone reacted to it on her twitter, tagging Taylor; and Taylor reciprocated.
“I’m crying. how special. I love you @taylorswift13,” Simone shared.
Taylor then replied, “I cried watching YOU. I feel so lucky to have gotten to watch you all these years, but this week was a lesson in emotional intelligence and resilience. We all learned from you. Thank you.”
