Gymnastics Star McKayla Maroney Denies She Was Hacked After Posting Racy Instagram Video

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney has social media flipping out again — and not for her athletic abilities.

The 21-year-old took over the Internet with her “not impressed” face at the 2012 London Games. Now, Maroney has people talking over a racy video she shared on her Instagram Saturday.

In the clip, the former gymnast poses for the camera in a thong, showing off her curvy figure.

“Another world premiere,” the Fierce Five member captioned the video.

When people accused her account of being hacked, Maroney took to Twitter and confirmed she posted the video herself  — and wasn’t making any apologies about it.

“I didn’t get hacked. unfollow if u need to. all love,” she wrote on Twitter, adding, “hey, im just doing me. if u want me to be a role model so bad, get inspired by how i give 0 f and go do u.”

She later added, “Not everyone’s gona like u, but if u stay true to yourself they might just respect you.”

Maroney has previously denied rumors that she had lip injections, telling Seventeen her new look isn’t due to cosmetic surgery.

“Makeup and a camera can really make you look like a different person,” she said.

“I think it freaks people out to see somebody change just a little bit,” the California native explained. “I don’t mean to freak anybody out. At the end of the day, I have changed. I can’t blame anybody for saying, ‘Oh, she changed!’ You know, because I have. And that’s okay.”

“Growing up in the social media world, it’s tough,” she said. “Your face changes, you get older, your face fills out, and you fall into liking makeup and different stuff like that. And for people saying that, for the most part – it would kind of hurt my feelings when you haven’t done anything.”
