Even if you’re a gorge model working for a huge brand like Aerie, you still have to deal with body shamers and rude comments online. Iskra Lawrence is super tired of it, and she’s fighting back in a really powerful way.
Some dude called Iskra a “fat cow” on Instagram, commenting that plus-size models promote obesity, that “everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s” and “people like her [eat] too many bags of crisps.” (FYI: What we call chips, Brits call crisps.) Ugh. So she decided to stage a photo shoot eating crisps (er, chips) and write how she really feels about being body shamed.
“This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT,” she writes. “Opinions are like arseholes — everyone’s got one.”
