Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman fired off a series of angry tweets complaining about the behavior of a male TSA worker who, she says, body-shamed her as she passed through security.
The Needham native doesn’t identify the airport, but said the worker was rude and insulting, and she didn’t appreciate it, tweeting:
“Lady at TSA: “Gymnast? I recognized u by ur biceps”
Man at TSA: “I don’t see any muscles” & continues 2 stare at me
How rude & uncomfortable”
The 22-year-old gymnast ,whose muscles were sufficient to win a gold medal at the London and Rio Olympics, wasn’t done chastising the clod.
“I work very hard to be healthy & fit,” she tweeted. “The fact that a man thinks he judge my arms pisses me off I am so sick of this judgmental generation.”
Wait, there’s more:
“If u are a man who can’t compliment a girls, you are sexist,” she tweeted. “Get over yourself. Are u kidding me? It’s 2017. When will this change?”
And, finally, this:
“He was very rude,” she tweeted. “Staring at me shaking his head like it couldn’t be me because I didn’t look “strong enough” to him? Not cool.”
Raisman’s followers — she has over 933,000 of them on Twitter — were quick to back her, saying she doesn’t have anything to prove to anyone.
Replied one of her fans: “Ask him where he keeps his Olympic Gold Medals.”
