The issues of fat-shaming and the shutting down of said shamers have been roaming the internet as of late. On the other side of the scale, women are also shamed for being “too skinny” and setting an unhealthy example for the public.
Victoria’s Secret model Bridge Malcolm was recently the victim of such body shaming after the recent Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Malcolm took to Instagram to express a rarely heard opinion from the fashion industry.
She captioned the photo, “Can we STOP with the skinny shaming please? I am extremely fit and healthy and am not in the slightest way anorexic. I have worked hard to look like this and am proud of my body. I may not be the curviest but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do. Maybe today take a look inside yourself and wonder why you feel the need to shame strangers over the Internet about their bodies. Peace and love to you all – let’s change the conversation ❤️”
