Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman said on Twitter that she was body-shamed by a male TSA employee, Daily Mail reports.

Aly Raisman is not interested in your judgment of her body. Making her wonder whether the incident had anything to do with the fact she didn't look "strong enough" for him.

"It's a really great feeling of accomplishment when you leave the gym everyday and you're just exhausted, she says".

"I work very hard to be healthy & fit", she wrote.

"If u are a man who can't compliment a girls you are sexist. It's 2017. When will this change?" she wrote.

This is not the first time Raisman has spoken out about being judged.

Aly Raisman at a gymnastics event previous year. Get over yourself. Are you kidding me?

Following the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Raisman has been a model of body positivity.

"In fifth grade, all the boys in my class told me that I looked like I was on steroids or that I was anorexic", she explained. Her arms and legs propel her into the air, where she spins and twists with surgical precision; they launch her off beams of various sizes, and catch her when she comes slamming back down to earth.

What's even more annoying is that Raisman has also had to deal with criticism for people saying she's " too strong." "I did the issue because I love my body". Don't ever let anybody tell you how you should or shouldn't look. "There is no such thing as a flawless body type", she wrote in the post.
