If u are a man who can t compliment a girls [muscles] 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.
Fans were quick to praise Aly for speaking out. One said: Ask him where he keeps his Olympic Gold Medals. Another added: He probably DID see your muscles and felt threatened by them, so he had to put you down to make himself feel better.
A third added: He represents the TSA, you represent the USA now who s better?
Raisman is a two-time Olympian with three gold medals
Aly is a two-time Olympian and three-time gold medal winner who has also competed in Dancing With the Stars.
A spokesman for the American Transportation Security Administration said: We conduct screening at security checkpoints when departing from a U.S. or U.S. territory airport, and it appears that Ms. Raisman was travelling from a foreign airport.
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.

This was one day Paul Lo Duca will never forget: the day a Dodgers security guard nearly overdosed on amphetamines. It was early in a game, when a well-known starting pitcher told the catcher he was needed in the clubhouse. One of the team s security guards face had turned beat-red. He had drank a full cup of the Dodgers loaded coffee full of amphetamines, also known as greenies. Most players would take a shot of the coffee to get going. The security guard was unaware it was filled with drugs.
I thought he was a goner, Lo Duca, a Dodger from 1998-2004, said on Barstool s Pardon My Take podcast.
They had to take him to the hospital. I literally had my shin guards on, I m looking up at the TV because I have to catch next inning, and [I m saying], We need to call the paramedics right now. It s no joke. The security guard fortunately would be OK after drinking a cup full of what Lo Duca, a former Met, referred to as liquid cocaine but needed muscle relaxers just to get to sleep. Greenies were outlawed by baseball in 2005.
If you ask guys in that area, or ask guys now, would they rather have steroids or greenies, I guarantee it would be 80-20 greenies, he said.

A Maryland high school security chief a one-time NYPD cop allegedly continued to have sex with a 17-year-old student after he was released from jail and ordered to stay away from her, court records show. Mark Yantsos who remains on administrative leave from his job as security team leader at Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville was arrested again last Friday after prosecutors said he had several meetings with the girl, including one encounter in which they had sex and Yantsos gave her $100, NBC4 Washington reported. Yantsos had the girl at his home in Rockville for five consecutive days between April 28 and May 2 weeks after he was released on bond on the condition of having no contact with the alleged victim, Bethesda Magazine reports.
The 57-year-old was collared last month after detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department s Special Victims Unit learned that he had an ongoing sexual relationship with the student. The alleged victim told police Yantsos befriended her in 2016, buying her multiple gifts since that time including a cellphone he got her in March to communicate with her during and after school hours. Yantsos was initially booked on charges that include sexual abuse of a minor and fourth-degree sexual offense involving the girl, Montgomery County police said. It wasn t clear what new charges he may face since his latest arrest. Yantsos is now undergoing a mental evaluation, sources told NBC4 Washington. His attorney, Donald Knepper, declined to comment.
One student at the school characterized the charges against Yantsos as horrific.
This guy was entrusted with our security, and he was the head of security, and to think he s capable of doing something like that is really horrific, senior Michelle Dubovitsky told NBC4 Washington. Police have said that Yantsos was a sergeant with the NYPD until he left the department after he was busted for allegedly menacing a waitress with a gun at a topless bar in 1994. The deposition of the reported arrest was not clear, but school officials learned of it only after he was cuffed for allegedly having sex with the teen girl, the local NBC affiliate reported. Yantsos has a long history of working with teens in several states, including Maryland and New York. He was also listed as the 2016 program director for a girls basketball travel team called the Maryland Lightning, WTOP reported. He also coached the girls basketball team at Richard Montgomery High School for two seasons and at the Academy of Holy Cross in Kensington, according to his online bio.
In 2015, Yantsos told the high school s student newspaper that keeping students safe was the most vital aspect of his job, according to WTOP.com.
That s our main objective, so that you go home at the end of the day to your parents, he told The Tide.
Yantsos trial is scheduled to begin on June 2.
