Ashley Graham's dealt with her fair share of body shamers. In October she hit back at Instagram commenters who criticized her workout videos. Before that, she opened up about how boyfriends broke up with her out of fear she'd be "too fat" later in life. It's frustrating Graham can't just live her life without somebody making a snarky comment, but she handles the scrutiny in her stride.
And what happened this week is no exception to that. The supermodel took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 17) and shared a video of herself dancing to N.E.R.D. and Rihanna's "Lemon" while wearing a bikini on vacation. Graham, 30, looks like she's having a blast, but the good vibes were thwarted by an Instagram user who suggested Graham appears pregnant in the video.
“Good Morning… Ashley!!!!$ Looking good…. Baby bump…. :))))),” a user who goes by @magbody wrote in the comments section.
Of course, it didn't take long for Graham to clap back. “@magbody that’s just called fat," she replied. Check out Graham's original post and comment exchange below:
This is a good time to remind everyone that it's never OK to make comments or assumptions about another person's body. Full stop. Thankfully, Graham has a blank-you attitude when it comes to situations like this. "I kind of just give my middle finger to [haters], like, ‘Guess what? I’m really hot,’” she told GLAMOUR in 2016. "Every day I get at least 20 messages [saying I've helped them]. I hope they look in the mirror and say, ‘I am beautiful.' When you do that, it’s a whole other ball game—you start to understand that your words have power.”Ashley Graham on the daily affirmations that motivate her - and the skin-boosting oxygen facials she swears by
