!!!TRIGGER WARNING: EATING DISORDER/BODY IMAGE!!!
When Alexa Chung posts a photo of herself on Instagram, I always run into a significant amount of cruel comments underneath said photo. People seem to believe that she has no feelings, she never checks the comments, or she is too wealthy/famous to care what people say — thus no one should defend her.
Of course, there are plenty of individuals who stand up for Alexa and condemn body-shaming!
Here are some examples of the cruel comments Alexa receives:
As if the purpose of a woman’s body is to be a role model for others. And how exactly does this total stranger know what Alexa’s “natural weight” is?
"I’m not body-shaming, I’m just body-shaming"
Insinuating that Alexa has an eating disorder just because of a picture. Anorexic is not a synonym for slim/skinny. Anorexia is a mental illness.
When I found this in amoeba I almost died.
