Gymnast Nastia Liukin Snacks In Underwear In Anorexia Clap-Back

By Rebecca Cukier

Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is snacking in her undies to address comments about her weight. The 31-year-old five-time Olympic medalist, making 2020 headlines for a massive anorexia storm, this week revisited the issue of what she feeds herself, with last night bringing a Q&A for the blonde's 1 million Instagram followers. Nastia, who has already defended her "gross skinny chicken legs" this year, highlighted one question from a fan asking how she deals with comments suggesting her eating is disordered. See the response below.

Don't Say She Doesn't Eat

Scroll for the photo and clap-back. Nastia, who celebrated her 31st birthday last year with both sprinkle donuts and a burger trip to fast-food chain Shake Shack, chose not to post a photo of herself eating junk food, but she was eating. The 2008 all-around champion shared a throwback of herself in a skimpy, sporty-strapped Dior bralette in black, with the star seen chowing down on a green apple and with many more beside her in a white bowl. Big crunch, big reveal.

The confident munch came with text. "How u respond to comments about weight? I'm very thin and everyone thinks it's a disorder," the fan had written.

"Story of my life," Nastia replied. She added that "it used to bother me a lot," even saying she'd be "lying" if she said it didn't bother her. The Volition partner continued "because I get comments and messages on a daily - but it certainly doesn't bother me like it used to." See the photo below.

Thick Skin

Nastia, whose October 2020 storm came with a massive clap-back, concluded with a mention of the Shake Shack burger she enjoyed on her birthday, writing that "between a little thicker skin + just understanding that the people who make these comments don't know me - or know or see what I eat on a daily."

The Olympian, who has admitted she's always been "thin," also admitted to having been blessed with a good gene set as she shouted out her Olympic gymnast parents. More photos below.

2020 Anorexia Storm

Last year, Nastia was asked how she feels about "promoting borderline anorexia looking bodies" in a fan DM, one the star reposted while in a scoop-neck dress as she fired back:

"If taking pictures of my OWN body — a body that won me many Olympic 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."
