On our minds: skinny shaming

"I may not be the curviest but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do." Model Bridget Malcolm shames the body shamers – and she's not first in line.

Models have taken to social media to reveal their exposure to body shaming a lot this year. Though mostly in critique of industry colleagues dismissing them for being too big, we have also seen models hitting back on the public for calling them too skinny. One example is Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm’s recent Instagram comeback shaming her shamers for repeatedly calling her anorexic and telling her to gain weight. Malcolm posted another skin-revealing selfie meaning that people needs to stop the skinny shaming, that she is fit and healthy – not anorexic – and though she is not the curviest person out there, she is a woman with the right to look the way she wants. Dazed reflected further on the post here.
