Trainer and fitness blogger Cassey Ho has made a successful business out of her healthy diet and active lifestyle, but in a recent video she showed that she isn’t immune to cruel online comments about her weight.
In the video, Cassey imagines exactly what would happen if she took every piece of negative feedback on board. In the end she might end up with a body that will please everyone, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be any happier in herself.
Cassey’s not the only one who has been taking a stand against cruel weight shamers of late. Here are a few other inspirational celebs who have spoken out against their haters…
Selena might have been having the time of her life on her holidays in Mexico last week, but that didn’t stop online trolls from making hurtful comments about her weight. The singer refused to stand for the negativity, and responded on Instagram by saying, “I love being happy with me y’all #theresmoretolove.”
E! presenter Giuliana has been the subject of endless criticism in recent months for being “too skinny”. She finally spoke out last month to set the record straight about her low weight, which is the result of ongoing cancer treatment. “I’m doing the best I can… I refuse to be broken,” she told People magazine.
The American Idol singer has had to defend herself and her weight numerous times, most notably after Katie Hopkins asked if she had “eaten all her backing singers.” Kelly’s epic response? “I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will.”
Fierce as always, Pink was having none of it when some cruel comments began appearing online after she attended a red carpet event recently. In an open letter to her haters, Pink wrote, “I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off.”
