AceShowbiz - Ashley Graham won't let body-shamers get away after criticizing her physique. After catching wind of an online troll who often compares her to "real models" and calls her a "fat model," she took to Instagram Stories to slam the troll who fat-shamed her.
"I know I'm being a little petty by posting these stupid photos of somebody who wrote 'real model and fat model' but I will let you know nothing defines what a real model or a fat model or fake model is," she said in the black-and-white clip, getting glammed up.
She went on saying, "Your weight, your skin, your hair, your religious background, none of that determines whether you're a real model or not. So all those girls out there who have dreams and hopes keep fighting for them."
This was not the first time the "America's Next Top Model" judge spoke up against body-shamers. Last year, she hit back at critics who slammed her for appearing slimmer in one of her Instagram posts. She wrote in an open letter that she could do whatever she wanted with her own body.
"To some I'm too curvy. To others I'm too tall, too busty, too loud, and, now, too small too much, but at the same time not enough," she said. "When I post a photo from a 'good angle,' I receive criticism for looking smaller and selling out. When I post photos showing my cellulite, stretch marks and rolls, I'm accused of promoting obesity, The cycle of body-shaming need to end. I'm over it."
She concluded her letter by urging women to support each other and let her decide what she wanted to do with her body. "Why waste time and energy spewing negativity? Let's worry about our own bodies. My body is MY body. I'll call the shots," she said.
