It all began after Sameera Khan—a journalist and beauty pageant titleholder—issued a now-deleted tweet on Sunday night.

Sameera specifically uploaded two photos of Ashley wearing a dainty dress, and she wrote, “The fat positivity movement is getting out of hand.”

She also mom-shamed Ashley and went as far as to dub her as a “(fat) wh*re.”

Sameera went on to allege that “poor, stressed-out men prefer fat women like Ashley Graham.”

Where’s The Love For Lizzo, Though?

Amid the support for Ashley, however, some began to question whether those “whose ‘plus-size’ bodies don’t conform to societal standards of beauty” would get the same validation.

Lizzo in particular was brought up, as many felt that people wouldn’t have the same positive energy for the “Rumors” singer.

Despite this, many fans relished in the fact that Ashley Graham and Lizzo stay living in critics’ heads rent-free. In the words of Nicki Minaj, “F**k them skinny b***hes!”
