Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman has taken to Twitter to share her experience dealing with a "judgmental" and "sexist" TSA agent.

According to the New York Post, the 22-year-old gymnast was going through security when a female TSA agent asked if she was a gymnast, saying she recognized Raisman by her biceps. A male agent then allegedly inserted himself in the conversation (typical), saying he "didn't see any muscles," while staring at her uncomfortably.

In response to some followers calling her response "entitled," Raisman had this to say: "I'm not entitled just stating he hurt my feelings,' she tweeted. "He didn't have 2 say anything at all. I'm allowed 2 be upset if someone is mean."

Very fair. Also, it's clapback season.
