AceShowbiz - Having a lot of people criticizing her appearance in the past surely makes Ashley Graham know how to respond when someone does it again to her. The plus-size model recently shut down an Instagram user who thought she was pregnant.
It all started after Ashley shared on the photo-sharing site a video of her dancing in a pink bikini. She used a butterfly filter and wore chic aviators, giving off chill summer vibes. Ashley totally looked like she was having a blast, but the good vibes were thwarted when the user suggested she appeared pregnant in the video.
"Good Morning... Ashley!!!$ Looking good... Baby bump... :)))," so the user wrote in the comment section, and the former "America's Next Top Model" judge was not having it. In response to the user, she simply said, "That's just called fat."
Several fans then came to her defense by saying that she didn't even look fat in the video. "That's so not even fat," one fan wrote, while another one noted, "What fat?? All I see is a banging body! Strut your stuff!" A third fan even called her "gorgeous," adding, "Thank you for giving us curvy girls the confidence to love our bodies and flaunt them."
Ashley has been vocal about body positivity over the years and she is never afraid to hit back at anyone who body shames her. Back in 2016, she wrote an open letter which was directed to people who like to comment on her body, reminding them that she could do whatever she wanted with her own body.
"To some I'm too curvy. To others I'm too tall, too busty, too loud, and now, too small too much, but at the same time not enough," she said. "When I post a photo from a 'good angle,' I received criticism for looking smaller and selling out. When I post photos showing my cellulite, stretch marks and rolls, I'm accused of promoting obesity. They cycle of body-shaming need to end. I'm over it."
