Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman blasts TSA agent for body shaming at airport
TSA says it reached out to the gymnast and is looking into the incident
Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman says she was body shamed by a TSA agent Wednesday, and took to Twitter to lash out about the situation.
Raisman did not identify the airport in question, but went on to say she works "very hard to be healthy & fit. The fact that a man thinks he can judge me and my arms pisses me off I am so sick of this judgmental generation." She was not finished.
TSA released a statement, saying it has reached out to the gymnast for more information.
"We conduct screening at security checkpoints when departing from a U.S. or U.S territory airport, and it appears that Ms. Raisman was traveling from a foreign airport," the statement said. "We have reached out to Ms. Raisman via Twitter, requesting more details of her experience. If the incident occurred at any of our security checkpoints in the U.S, we look forward to hearing from her to look into this further."
