Health Controversy: Kate Upton Responds to Pro-Skinny Haters Who Called Her “Lardy”
Model Kate Upton was recently blasted by “pro-skinny” bloggers who tore into her for being too “fat” (eye roll), but, she’s speaking out now, and I love what she had to say…
Ever since landing on the cover of Sports Illustrated in her bikini, 20-year-old Kate Upton has experienced recent worldwide fame. Many admire the beauty’s healthy figure, and yet others … not so much. Sadly, a so-called “pro-skinny” web site called Upton “lazy”, “lardy”, and “fat,” and shamed her for not being a size zero.
But, she’s not staying silent. Here’s what she had to say on the matter:
“I’m not going to starve just to be thin,” she said in a statement. “I want to enjoy life and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.”
Her rep added: “It’s [the comments in the blogosphere are] absurd. Kate is gorgeous and very healthy.”
It baffles me how people can be so mean.
Thoughts on this?
P.S. Where do you fall on the global “fat scale” and she’s obsessed with tanning–even skin cancer won’t get her to stop…
