Aly Raisman Shows Her Mettle In Blasting Airport Body-Shamer

Uncategorized

Aly Raisman, a three-time Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics, just slammed a judge.

And with good reason.

This judge wasn?t officiating a competition. He was some guy at the airport apparently making unsolicited negative comments about her body.

Raisman recounted the incident on Twitter Wednesday, saying it all started when a female TSA agent said she recognized Raisman was a gymnast by her biceps. That?s when the man broke into the conversation, rudely proclaiming he didn?t see any muscles and proceeding to stare at her, according to the London and Rio Olympics hero.

?I am so sick of this judgmental generation,? she wrote.

We?ll let Raisman take it away from here:

Raisman spoke out in January about maintaining a positive body image before she appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

?I of course like everyone else have my days where I feel insecure and not at my best,? she wrote on Instagram with one of her S.I. photos released as a preview. ?BUT I think it is that much more important we love our bodies and support each other.?
