I was just scrolling through your posts and came upon the one awhile back about Sophie from Anastasia, and how her fatness is never made the butt of the joke and she's presented as attractive. Well, it pains me to say that Sophie is played by a thin actress in the Broadway musical version of Anastasia. Look it up (her character's name is now Lily, btw, but that's beside the point). The musical is pretty different from the movie, sure, but that's no excuse to not use a fat actress! I'm so pissed!
It is called fat erasure in the media. And they also just did that on the new Marvel series The Runaways.
It is inexcusable and plain and simple fatphobia.
