(Newser) – McKayla Maroney is still not impressed. The Olympic gymnast posted an Instagram video Saturday showing her dancing in skimpy underwear, leading many to question whether her account was hacked—and, if not, criticizing her for posting the video. Her simple response, posted to Instagram later Saturday: "i didn't get hacked. unfollow if u need to. all love." On Twitter, she added, "hey, im just doing me. if u want me to be a role model so bad, get inspired by how i give 0 f---s and go do u." TMZ notes that Maroney is now an aspiring pop singer. (And she's posted other sultry pics in the past.)
