When former Bachelorette Georgia Love hit out at body shammers who labelled her as having “thunder thighs” we applauded. In an attempt to highlight the cruel comments women in the spotlight have to endure on a daily basis, the bubbly brunette took to Instagram to share just a taste of what she’s endured over the last few months.
Love shared a picture of her working out, alongside vicious comments which were posted about her to a website. Trolls not only hit at her appearance but also her relationship with Lee Elliot.
This is a photo of me and nine of the best friends to have ever existed. They know this time of year is going to be extremely tough for me so they threw me a surprise Christmas party!!! 😱😍🎄I might not have my Mum this year but gosh I have a lot of beautiful people around me and so much love in my life ❤️ #appreciationpost #bestfriends #surpriseparty #luckygirl #BASTFRANDS
“The guys who didn’t get a rose actually went home in relief, she’s no prize!” one wrote.
“Congrats to Lee to score an old lookin’ cat lady with thunder thighs. I bet he keeps blonde sugar candies on the side.”
The stunning journalist hit back writing: “No I’m not a size 6 and I will never apologise for that. I am a happy, fit, active, NORMAL person and that is all any of us should strive to be,” she wrote.
No wonder negative body image and mental health issues are becoming more and more prevalent in our society, the internet can be a disgusting place. @dailymail posted an article about me exercising (not sitting on the couch gorging on a burger. Exercising) and every single comment is body shaming me. One even suggests I’m so unattractive my boyfriend simply must be cheating on me! This is not a “woe is me” post, this is to highlight just a snippet of what these trolls do and shame them right back. Girls (and guys), if anyone tells you you’re not good enough, not pretty enough, not skinny enough; they’re wrong. No I’m not a size 6 and I will never apologise for that. I am a happy, fit, active, NORMAL person and that is all any of us should strive to be 👊🏻 #hatersgonnahate #rantover
Love received a barrage of support with thousands of comments and likes applauding her actions. This weekend in true witty Georgia Love style she hit out again. This time posting a candid snap of her and boyfriend Lee Elliott checking in at the airport.
“Checking in my thunder thighs for the flight,” she wrote with an image she shared on her Instagram Story.
Georgia Love: 1, Haters: 0.
