Is being fat a crime? In order to call out for and promote body positivity and diversity, Georgia Gibbs recently posted a sexy photo of herself and her good friend Katie Wasley on Instagram while on holiday, which received shocking reactions from netizens – condemnation of Georgia – because it was quite obvious that her figure was much slimmer than her curvier friend’s. Netizens falsely believed that Georgia deliberately chose to take a photo with a rounder Katie to emphasize her slimness. Some even thought that Georgia had Photoshopped herself to be even thinner, to make Katie appear fatter.
Georgia and Katie both stated that this was not the reaction they were expecting. Their original intention was to arouse everyone’s acceptance of body diversity and to counteract body shaming. Their aim was to let people know that they shouldn’t blindly lose weight or purposefully make themselves look sexy. As long as you’re healthy, it’s fine.
