Aly Raisman has no patience for haters.

The Olympic gymnast was waiting in line at airport security when a fan approached to say she recognized her because of her biceps. A man standing nearby then interjected, "I don't see any muscles."

Raisman has now taken to social media to respond to the "rude & uncomfortable" comments.

The 22-year-old gymnast recalled the man was "staring at me shaking his head like it couldn't be me because I didn't look 'strong enough' to him. Not cool."

She then continued, "I work very hard to be healthy and fit. The fact that a man thinks he [can] judge my arms pisses me off. I am so sick of this judgmental generation. If you are a man who can't compliment a girl's [arm muscles] you are sexist. Get over yourself. Are you kidding me? It's 2017. When will this change?"

This is not the first time Raisman has responded to body shamers.

After winning gold at the Rio Olympics, she took to Instagram to share some thoughts on self acceptance.


"Shoutout to all the boys from 5th-9th grade who made fun of me for being 'too strong.' Thanks for forcing me to learn to love myself and my body," she wrote. "My muscular arms that were considered weird and gross when I was younger have made me one of the best gymnasts on the planet. Don't ever let anyone tell you how you should or shouldn't look. There is no such thing as a perfect body type."
