Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is being given a hard time after bending over for a massive bikini thigh gap show-off on her Instagram. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist made headlines two days ago for a throwback bedroom selfie eyeing up summer 2021, with Nastia’s 1 million followers seemingly back to having their trolling hats on. Nastia, already trolled this year over her “gross skinny chicken legs,” now sees fans calling her shot distasteful. Check out the photo and reactions below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Nastia makes major headlines for having hosted the 12th annual Nastia Cup, this year held in Indianapolis, Indiana. Posting back home from Dallas, TX, the Russian-born star dropped her killer Olympian body while making it all tan, posing with parted legs, bending forward, and in a skimpy, unusual, and green spot bikini with matching long gloves. Basically a three-piece, the swimwear was doing wonders for Liukin’s figure, with the caption seeing her admit she’s back to the regular grind.
Looking confident with her wet hair slicked back and a gorgeous manicure upping the glam, Nastia took to her caption, writing: “Back to regular scheduled programming – which includes counting down the days till summer.”
The photo, which caught the attention of fellow gymnast MyKayla Skinner and has clocked over 33,000 likes, now also comes with a less-flattering response. A fan kicking things off wrote: “Well respected gymnastics idol one minute…so unfortunate!” The user also threw in a sad-face emoji. See the photo below.
While likes to the comment were left, Nastia’s followers were quick to back her up. The 2008 all-around champion’s army of fans are now replying: “Get outta here Karen!” with one fan stating: “Negativity and jealousy is so unfortunate.”
“Click unfollow. Then you don’t have to see her posts anymore. Simple,” another suggested, with a fourth finding the whole thing ridiculous as they asked: “Because she’s wearing a bathing suit?” Liukin does not appear to have responded to the backlash. See her bubble bath stretch below!
Nastia is fresh from a post seeing her address being canceled. Shortly before the Nastia Cup, the blonde shouted out 31-year-old singer Taylor Swift and her documentary, writing:
“While re-watching her documentary it reminded me yet once again that we really all can still inspire others while fighting and speaking for what we believe in – without getting cancelled.”
As The Blast reported, Nastia wound up slammed by right-wing followers. The beauty blogger also made 2020 headlines for an anorexia storm. If gymnast Simone Biles sounds familiar, see her removing her chest piercing in a bikini below.
