Last week, Hunter McGrady excitedly announced she was named an official rookie in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

"You guys, I have been bursting to tell you all the exciting news that I am an official Rookie in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit," McGrady, who was featured in the magazine last year, wrote. "Here I am, a size 16 at nearly 6 feet tall and am yet again in what is considered the sexiest magazine to come out every year!"

Unfortunately, not everyone was happy to learn McGrady will once again grace the pages of Sports Illustrated.

While *most* people were thrilled for McGrady and her major accomplishment, the model received a slew of negative coverage. She shared the body-shaming headlines on her Instagram story. 

"Sports Illustrated Has A New Plus-sized Model — When Will The Madness End?" one headline read. 

But rather than let these headlines affect her, McGrady decided to reclaim the words used to insult her.

"Oops! Madness is never ending," she cheekily wrote in response to the headlines. "Here to stay! Sorry!!!!!"

She continued to post photos of her "madness"-causing body on Instagram.

“When I see that, it is confirmation that, yes, the body positive movement is here, but we have a long way to go still," McGrady noted. "That lights a fire under me to continue this narrative"

"Things are gonna change," she insisted. "The people who haven’t gotten onboard yet, they’ll just have to catch up because it’s not stopping now. It’s only the beginning.” 

Tell 'em, McGrady.
