Don’t mess with Aly Raisman.

The Olympic gymnast and Needham native ripped a male TSA agent, who she says body-shamed her as she was passing through security one day this week. Raisman sent out a series of tweets condemning the individual and his apparent sexism.

Raisman, 22, took home the gold at the London and Rio Olympics. She participated earlier this year in Sports Illustrated’s “What I Model” campaign, explaining how it makes her feel proud of her physique.

“I also model because when I was younger I used to get made fun of by the boys in my class,” she said. “They told me that I was too strong, that I looked manly, and that I was anorexic and looked like I was on steroids. Of course, that really bothered me, and I used to hate the way that I looked, which, looking back, it makes me feel really sad. But that’s why I’m so proud to be in the SI Swim 2017 issue because at 22 years old I feel strong and beautiful in my own way and there is no perfect body type.”

Bill Simmons expressed interest in the vacant Bucks general manager job in 2008, writing he could take over an NBA team. With the Bucks once again searching for a GM after dismissing John Hammond, Simmons is making his pitch again.

Except this time, it seems like it’s fallen on deaf ears.

The “Book of Basketball” author tweeted Wednesday at the owner’s daughter, Mallory Edens. She didn’t seem impressed.

Ouch. Shockingly, maybe Simmons’ idea of trading Giannis Antetokounmpo to the Celtics for Jae Crowder and cash isn’t the direction Milwaukee wants to go in.
