Aly Raisman had zero tolerance for a body-shaming airport encounter

Olympic gymnasts have to put up with some ridiculous stuff from strangers.

But Aly Raisman would not stay silent after a body-shaming encounter while going through airport security.

The three-time gold medal winner took to Twitter on Wednesday to share her story.

Raisman has been outspoken before about body-image issues, as has her Team USA partner Simone Biles, who posted this tweet in December.

Just goes to show that even women of unfathomable accomplishment still have to put up with unfair societal pressures in 2017.

Good on Raisman for speaking out.
