Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is flaunting her insane body and the haters can hate. The 30-year-old five-time Olympic medalist and fashionista updated her Instagram stories ahead of the weekend with a little outdoor action as she soaked up Dallas, TX's continuing sunshine – if you don't live inside Nastia's Instagram, the 2008 all-around Olympic champion is fresh fro both eyeing up a 98-degree heatwave and, way bigger, clapping back over an anorexia comment that saw her skinny-shamed. Check out the latest, plus the anorexia storm below.

Shutting Down The 'Anorexia' Shamers

Scroll for the latest photo. Nastia, who can easily make a headline for her massive thigh gap, now sees her slender figure turning into a giant storm after a fan DM asked her how she felt about "promoting borderline anorexia looking" bodies. The Russian-born star, admitting that she has always been "thin," hasn't ignored the comment.

Today's story was a quick snapshot showing Nastia outdoors amid trellis greenery and bushes. The blonde, stylish outfitted in tight jeans and a white shirt, was flaunting her hyper-extended legs, also snapped from behind to show off a rear dubbed her "Gold Medal Butt" this month.

Nastia, followed by 1 million on Instagram, might spend her days flogging her $55 Celery Green Cream and influencing for everything from clothing brand Revolve to Kim Kardashian's 2019-founded SKIMS line, but the hot topic this week has been that anorexia clapback.

Nastia initially addressed the remark on her stories, then returning for a permanent post. Seen in selfie mode from her home and in a bronze, scoop-neck dress, Nastia said that she'd been "triggered" and left "p-ssed" by the hurtful remark.

'It's My Body'

A lengthy caption from Nastia continued:

"If taking pictures of my OWN body—a body that won me many olympics medals, a body that I push each day to get stronger, a body that God gave me—is inherently promoting anorexia, then honestly, we’ve gotten to a place in the world where just BEING is offensive. This is ME. This is my body."

Nastia has since shown off her glamorous, beautifully-organized pantry, with it stacked with Oreo cookies, flour, nuts jars, plus organic Annie's packaged goods.

Admits Always Been 'Thin'

Nastia, who retired from professional gymnastics aged just 22 back in 2012, took a moment in her anorexia clap-back to address her body size. The star, who in 2016 told The Cut that her mom had always raised her to "have a cookie" if she wants one, added:

"While I’ve always been thin, I’ve not always been strong. I’m proud to say that I am truly stronger now than I’ve ever been. I’m sorry if my body is triggering to you. "
