The 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is out. This year's edition features model Samantha Hoopes for the fifth straight 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.

Remember these? Of course you do.

The stunning model opted to go with a cutoff T-shirt for one of her shoots this year. It's...something.

The shirt features the words "DO MY NIPPLES OFFEND YOU." It's fairly straight to the point.

Haley Kalil, an SI Swimsuit rookie finalist, wrote "It’s bs that this part of a woman’s body is deemed offensive. My photo was flagged the second I put it up because someone decided this particular part of a woman’s (but not a man’s) body is offensive. SLAY @samanthahoopes SLAY."

Hoopes took to Instagram, too, writing "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!"

The photo can be seen below. WARNING: It's NSFW.
