The 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is out, and despite the emergence of several star rookies, it's a veteran who's dominating the news over the past week. Samantha Hoopes was in the issue for the fifth consecutive year.

Hoopes, 27, is a Pennsylvania native. She's probably best known for her work in the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's Most American Thickburger commercials - which caused quite the uproar in recent years.

Now she's making headlines for what she posted on Instagram just a few days ago. In a recent photo shoot, she opted to go with a cutoff T-shirt that read "DO MY NIPPLES OFFEND YOU."

She posted the image of her in a very see-through shirt with the following caption. You can view the image here.

"Every year @si_swimsuit always amazes me & takes leaps in the industry! This year & this group of amazingly strong women who band together are seriously so inspiring! Doesn’t matter your age weight height or anything no one deserves to be treated poorly touched or abused for the way the look or for what other people view you as! Always do you and know that there’s options and people here to help you!"

Meet her below.
