Aly Raisman: TSA agent was 'sexist'
NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman says she was body-shamed by a male Transportation Security Administration agent when he said he didn't "see any muscles" on her.
On Wednesday, the 23-year-old who has won six Olympic medals as a member of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, took to Twitter to say she had been made to feel "uncomfortable" at a security checkpoint by the agent's comments and that she was "sick of this judgmental generation."
"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"
Raisman had apparently been vacationing in Turks & Caicos in recent days based on photos and posts to her Twitter feed. The incident presumably occurred in an airport.
"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."
"If u are a man who can't compliment a girls 💪🏻 you are sexist. Get over yourself. Are u kidding me? It's 2017. When will this change?"
"He 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."
