Livvy Dunne Posed For Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition & The Reactions Were Just As Creepy As You’d Expect

Welp, should have seen that one coming.

Olivia Dunne, the gymnastics star from LSU, has made quite a name for herself off of NIL deals for…well, obvious reasons.

The 21-year-old has racked up a massive following over the past few years, boasting nearly eight million followers on TikTok, and 4.4 million on Instagram. She’s the highest paid female NIL athlete in college sports, setting herself up for a lucrative career outside of gymnastics.

Livvy has gotten so popular that LSU actually had to hire a security guard to travel with the team due to crazed Livvy Dunne fans, and even when the team travels to opposing schools, the crowds pack the gymnasiums for the TikTok star.

But things took a serious turn when Livvy was forced to switch to online classes after getting death threats from stalkers:

“I had a scare once with a message that I got about a class I was going to, and I was like ‘you know what, it’s not worth it.’

It was a threat. It seemed like they knew where I was at and what class, and I just decided better safe than sorry.”

All this for a college athlete. Insane.

While Livvy graduated from LSU this year, she’s still eligible to return for one more year due to the extra year of eligibility granted to athletes because of COVID. And Livvy said she’s made her decision, but hasn’t announced yet whether she’s going to be returning.

In the meantime though, she’s been staying plenty busy. Her boyfriend, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Paul Skenes, recently made his MLB debut with Livvy in the crowd looking on.

And for her latest venture, Livvy made an appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, posing in a white bikini for some pictures that set the internet on fire.

Of course the response to the SI swimsuit photos was totally respectful and tasteful, right?

That was a rhetorical question. You know it was absolutely creepy as f*ck.

What in the actual…

Honestly, I would include more tweets but most of them are way too inappropriate to even embed here. That’s just a sample of the more “tame” comments from the fine folks on the internet.

Keep it classy, y’all.
