On Saturday night, gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney posted what can only be described as an incredibly racy Instagram video in which she shows off much of her rotund backside.

Just in case you thought she might regret being so revealing on Instagram, she bounced back Monday with two more revealing photos.

An image of her silver medal reaction on the medal podium went viral with the "McKayla is not impressed" meme becoming a popular social media image.

When people accused her of being hacked, the 21-year-old confirmed she posted the video herself. She later wrote in another tweet, "not everyone's gona like u, but if u stay true to yourself they might just respect you".

It's not the first time Maroney has dealt with controversy since London.

The former athlete further denied altering her lips, saying she had grown from 16-year-old girl that everyone knew about the 2012 Olympics.
