You might recognize McKayla Maroney’s name for a number of different reasons.
After all, the 21-year-old has accomplished a great deal in a remarkably short period of time.
Following her success at the 2012 Olympics, McKayla became a meme thanks to her famously “unimpressed’ reaction to taking home the silver.
McKayla wisely decided to that it’s easier to cash in on Internet fame than on pommel horse skills, so she skipped the 2016 games and has been focusing on a career as a pop singer/social media starlet.
She might not be a household name just yet, but Maroney has demonstrated that she has a firm grasp on what makes the Internet go ’round.
Her knack for self-promotion is downright Kardashian-esque, and that’s not the only way in which McKayla’s rise to stardom can be likened to Kim K’s.
Yes, the Internet has recently developed a fascination with McKayla Maroney’s butt, and she’s not doing much to discourage that sudden interest:
The video above, posted earlier this week, prompted rumors that McKayla had received butt implants, and she’s handling the speculation in true Kard clan fashion:
By posting more photos of her ass!
Demonstrating again that she has a blindingly bright future in the world of social media stardom, McKayla’s approach to the butt rumors is to offer up more butt.
Were it not for the fact that she’s already demonstrated considerable talent, we’d say she’s perfectly reminiscent of a young Kim.
Were not totally sure what McKayla is trying to prove here, but we’re definitely not complaining.
The pics definitely serve as further evidence that she wasn’t hacked, as was rumored in the hours after her hugely popular thong video appeared online.
But they don’t really prove much with regard to the implant rumors.
Unless she’s pointing out that those rumors were ridiculous to begin with, as her ass really isn’t that big.
It may be perfectly sculpted, but we’re guessing that has more to do with McKayla being a 21-year-old gymnast than with any surgical enhancements.
In short, it looks like McKayla’s butt is real, and it also seems that we’ll be seeing much more of it in the years to come.
And for that, we thank her.
