She wrote: "No wonder so many people have eating disorders [as a result of] body shaming. Put abit of weight on over Xmas while on holiday (we're all guilty of it) come back to work, wear a typical McQueen dress & get tweets asking if you're pregnant or just fat when it airs in April.To set that straight no I'm not. Certain camera angles can make you look abit bigger sometimes or maybe you're just having a bit of a bad time in your personal life so can't go to the gym as much. When did it become okay to comment constantly on people's appearances so negatively?"I'm healthy happy and I exercise regularly & I'm sorry I didn't fit into my dress as well as people seem to want me to. I was brought up on if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.In this day and age you'd think people would have learned how important it is to celebrate each other rather than think of ways to bring them down. I'm okay though ta. Just an idea [sic]."

SLAYYYYY.

If everybody could share the same body positive attitude then women, men and the general human race alike would be a better place. It's not down to other people to judge you by what shape you are, and whether you're short, tall, fat, thin, shaped like a triangle with fluffy bits on - other people do NOT have the right to shame you for being you.
