Pro-Anorexia Website Slams Model Kate Upton: "She Looks Thick, Vulgar ..."
Dangerous site offers “Starving Tips of the Day” to Young Girls
There's been a lot of media attention lately over the trend of "fat shaming," but have you ever hear of "thin shaming?" A new website called SkinnyGossip.com is calling out celebrities who - by society's standards - have fantastic bodies, but according to the editors of the site, just aren't thin enough.
Their latest target? Model Kate Upton, whose killer curves recently landed her on the cover of Sports Illustrated and launched her career as one of the most celebrated female bodies in the business.
But critics on SkinnyGossip.com aren't fans and they've been merciless in ripping Kate apart for her appearance in new Carl's Jr. commercial.
Among the criticism? "She looks thick, vulgar, almost pornographic...and she's a solid 30 lbs too heavy for this outfit." Writes another commenter: "Huge thighs, no waist and floppy boobs." They also refer to her as a "cannibal" - not-so-subtly implying that by munching on the hamburger she's a cow eating another cow. Nice.
Shockingly, SkinnyGossip.com claims it doesn't promote anorexia, it just celebrates skinniness. Sorry, but with site full of "Starving Tips of the Day" and helpful ways to ignore hunger pains, we're just not buying it.
Here's hoping SkinnyGossip.com wastes away and disappears soon.
