Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman slams 'sexist' TSA agent

Aly Raisman is a two-time Olympian, but apparently the medals aren’t enough to prove it.

The 22-year-old said she was body shamed by a TSA agent who allegedly mocked her muscles Wednesday and claimed not to have recognized her because of how she looked.

“If u are a man who can’t compliment a girls (muscle emoji) you are sexist. Get over yourself. Are u kidding me? It’s 2017. When will this change?” she wrote.

The six-time Olympic medal winner continued her rant, noting that the man was “very rude.”

“Staring at me shaking his head like it couldn’t be me because I didn’t look “strong enough” to him? Not cool,” Raisman wrote.

She added that the problem was a larger issue in this day and age.

“I work very hard to be healthy & fit. The fact that a man thinks he judge my arms pisses me off I am so sick of this judgmental generation,” she continued.
