Tess Holliday criticizes TikTok troll for feeling ‘adorned’ by fat bodies

In a recently posted TikTok videofashion model Tess Holiday commented on one commenter who says they follow “fat” people for their motivation to lose weight because it “outsmarts” them.

“I can guarantee that many of the bigger bodies and individuals you follow have happy, full lives, not despite being fat, but they just are,” Holliday began in her video.

“You’re looking for bigger person content as a way to make yourself feel better — which is a little weird to do,” she said.

The TikTok video lasts two and a half minutes, but instead of attacking the troll, Holliday calmly reasoned with their logic, pointing out the hatred and misinformation that fat people are targeted every day.

“I’m used to people using me as their photos and inspiration,” she said in the video, which was filmed while she was in bed. “But the one thing I’ve kept in all of this is my joy. And I’m fatter now than I’ve been in a while. But I’m also happier.”

“There are so many people who have commented lately saying that they can see my joy glowing. And that’s how other people see me,” she said with a smile.

The model further explained that if people perceive themselves as rude, they are likely to be perceived as such by others.

“If you’re putting out to the world that you’ve been extrapolated yourself, that’s more than likely how you’re perceived,” Holliday added.

She ended the video on a cheeky note: “And heaven forbid you gain all that weight back. What are you going to do then?”

This isn’t the first time Holliday has hit back at trolls, both online and in real life. Earlier this year she took to Instagram to speak out to a woman who made her fat At the doctor.

The model and blogger also started the Eff Your Beauty Standards movement, which aims to show women that they don’t have to be a certain size to love their bodies (large or small) and that their size shouldn’t dictate their fashion choices. .

In May 2021, Holliday announced that she had been diagnosed with anorexia and spoke of ‘going back’ in her recovery in an essay for Today

“I didn’t know it was what it was until last year – but for over 10 years I’ve had food restrictions. That means I don’t eat – or if I eat, it’s very little. Or sometimes it’s one big meal a day ,” she said in the essay.

“My dietitian, Anna Sweeney, first brought it to my attention. She told me, ‘I’m not licensed to diagnose you, but if I could, I’d diagnose you with anorexia nervosa.’”

“When she said anorexia, I laughed. I thought, ‘See how fat I am? There’s no way that word could ever be associated with someone my size,’” she said.
