skinny shaming

Vogue Williams is a well-known DJ, model, fitness and food guru who promotes a healthy lifestyle whenever she can, and yet is still bombarded with online comments about her weight.

Commenting on a person's body, whether you feel they're overweight or underweight, is always a toxic habit to feed.

The TV personality welcomed her first child with her husband Spencer Matthews eight months ago, and has been open about getting back into fitness since the arrival of baby Theodore.

Sharing a message which was written to her via Instagram, Vogue wrote; "I can't tell you how annoying these messages are."

The star blacked out the name of the person who wrote the skinny-shaming note, which bluntly said; "You are way too thin."

The fitness guru emphasises a nutrition based diet and exercise, rather than unhealthy habits, so her frustration at receiving such harsh messages is deeply understandable.

Sharing her BMI on her Instagram Story, she wrote; "There you go, I'm in the VERY healthy range of BMI for my weight and height."

The image displayed a BMI of 19.7, with the calculator app recommending that Vogue maintains her weight.

Slamming her online bullies, the DJ then wrote a paragraph venting her feelings at the bombardment of weight-based trolls;  

"I keep getting messages like that. It's starting to get annoying especially because I want to show a healthy lifestyle."

She continued; "I'm 64kgs and 5'11. That is 4kgs lighter than I used to sit before I had Theodore. I can't explain why but that's where my weight comfortably sits."

"I train four times a week and try to eat healthily 80 percent of the time. Please don't send messages about my weight anymore!"

Despite having a baby just eight months ago, Vogue is firmly in control of her own body and clearly values the energy which her fitness routine and diet offer her.

New mums are especially targeted with online hate following the birth of their child and the pressure to get their 'pre-baby body' back. 

Nobody deserves to be targeted about their appearance, so let's hope these messages are firmly put to a halt after Vogue spoke out so eloquently against them.

Herself and Spencer Matthews, known for his role in Made in Chelsea, have only just celebrated baby Theodore's christening over the weekend, which looked like a lovely occasion.

Khloé Kardashian, Christian Bale and Taylor Swift – they're just some of the people Amy Schumer has been poking fun at of late, but one jibe in particular didn't go down too well.

The comedienne and actress has forged her career on taking the idea of female beauty and femininity and turning it on its head, and she attempted to do just that with a recent Instagram post directed at Taylor. Now though, she's been forced to apologise for it.

Amy's brand of humour didn't go down too well with the legions of Swift fans who accused her of "skinny shaming" the singer with a photo captioned, "Taylor that's not a thigh gap. This is a thigh gap," posted on Monday night.

The photo, which shows Amy and fellow comedy star Bridget Everett in their bikinis, seems to have been a dig at Taylor's Grammy ensemble, a two-piece dress with a thigh-high slit.

Taking to Instagram again today, Amy made an attempt at an apology, though she certainly didn't seem too happy to be doing it.

"That's not a beard this is a beard," she wrote alongside a snap of herself with a blonde wig and a face full of fake stubble. 

"So sorry to anyone with a beard this may offend. I am a comic and should never make fun of myself at the expense of anyone else that I wasn't making fun of in the first place #relax #beard."

She referenced the drama again later on, posting a meme showing the famous Simpsons "That's not a knife, this is a knife," quote with the caption, "So sorry to anyone with a different size knife too."

As for Taylor, she's been dealing with drama from several different sources this week – in her Grammys Album Of The Year acceptance speech she made a thinly veiled dig at Kanye West for his claim that he "made that b*tch [Taylor] famous."

Speaking to the audience on Monday night, Taylor said, "There are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame… you'll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there."


She sparked waves of envy when her new husband posted a stunning bikini-clad image of her to Instagram.

Honeymooning in the Maldives, Michelle Keegan’s tiny waist and toned bum were on full display.

Certainly, there could be no doubt that the actress’s pre-wedding fitness regime had really paid off.

However, it seems that some fans were less than impressed – calling the 28-year-old out for being too thin.

Indeed, the star took to Facebook to express her anger at the insinuation.

In the post, which has now been deleted, she said: “Calling me ‘anorexic’ and ‘too skinny’ is just as bad as someone being called ‘fat’ and ‘obese,'" she wrote. 

She also insists that despite her incredible body, she doesn't diet. 

“I personally do not believe in dieting… and think that you should just eat everything in moderation.

“For example if I have an unhealthy lunch, I’ll have a healthy dinner and vice versa.”

She furthermore revealed that she ate three burgers this weekend, although she did highlight that ordinarily, she makes sure she gets to the gym three times a week. 

Previously, E! News presenter Giuliana Ranic has also spoken about the criticism she faces for her size 6 figure. In March, she said she’s “sick of being bullied” over her appearance.

And actress Tara Reid has declared: “I’m just a small-boned girl. I eat, I eat, I eat. Some people that eat too much, you yell at them that they’re fat.

"You want to get mad at me because I’m skinny? Great, get mad at me. I am what I am.”
