Okay, people need to stop talking about Lucy Watson’s weight.
The reality star, who is currently in Bali with boyfriend James Dunmore, has tweeted in defence of her beach body.
The Made in Chelsea star decided that enough was enough after she received some hurtful comments on an Instagram video, which showed her flicking her hair in a white bikini.
The comments included: ‘She is way too skinny’ and ‘does she even eat?’
Another even wrote, ‘It’s posts like this that give people a complex. You look unhealthy and posting ridiculously posey videos is just cringeworthy.’
These comments led Lucy to speak out to her 869,000 followers on Twitter.
She wrote, ‘I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been, the body shaming needs to stop…’
Some of her fans spoke out on her behalf, with one saying, ‘Doesn’t matter if people say too fat or too thin… it’s all a form of body shaming! Just because @imlucywatson is on t.v doesn’t mean she doesn’t have feelings. Keep the negative comments to yourselves’ [sic].
Lucy then tweeted again, admitting she has lost weight since switching from a vegetarian diet to a vegan one, but that she is healthy.
We’re so pleased to hear that the SW3 resident is both healthy and happy. And, to be honest, body-shaming in any form is NEVER okay.
This isn’t the first time that Lucy has had to respond to criticism, recently hitting back at what she branded as ‘weight-shaming’.
Last month she took to twitter to declare, ‘The weight shaming thing is really starting to p*** me off now.’
We agree with Lucy and think all of the body-shaming and name-calling should stop.
