Every time I see a celebrity post a photo on instagram I always decided to have a nose on the comments. I can actually say that they make me feel physically sick.
Every time Kim K posts a picture the comments are full of ‘fake’ or ‘photoshop’ or ‘your body is disgusting’. Honestly, why!? I am not a Kim K fan but i would never call her disgusting or ugly. At the end of the day she is still a human being and we should be empowering each other instead of bringing each other down.
Everybody has unrealistic expectations of what a body should look like and what the perfect body should be. Some believe you should have a thigh gap. Whereas some believe you should have chunky thighs. Some believe you should have petite boobs. Whereas some believe you should have dd+ boobs. Some believe you should be 6ft tall. Whereas some believe you should be 5ft4.
You will always find that you believe the opposite of your body type is the definition of perfect. It takes a long time for people to become comfortable in their own skin and realise that our body’s were not made to be one shape or size.
So why is it that we find millions of people following the trends celebrities are setting. Yet everybody soon jumps onto the band wagon of body shaming them. For example, British reality star Scarlett Moffatt was harshly hit by comments on social media when making an appearance on tv. It got to the extend where Scarlett released a statement saying:
‘Hard to pretend I’m ok and be a good role model to others about how it’s ok to just you when the comments from grown adults on here have resulted in me crying my eyes out! I hope you’re very proud of yourselves’
When Scarlett released a fitness dvd she was hit with backlash claims that she had lost too much weight and had taken it too far. Scarlett then decided that she was comfortable in her own skin and put some weight back on. Whilst most, like myself, thought that Scarlett now looks better and healthier in her new size she was still hit with criticism. But why!?
Why do people think it is okay to judge how other people look? When did it become okay to become virtual bullies towards people they do not know. Bullying is something that is no longer happening by children and teens in schools but bullying is now done by adults who think they are brave behind a keyboard!
