Sadly, Ashley Graham is no stranger to public commentary about her shape and for the most part, the body positive model ignores the haters. But one troll has tipped her over the edge and she's responded in a series of inspiring Instagram stories.
The 30-year-old came across an account that was posting side-by-side images of various “real models” like Candice Swanepoel, Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio, comparing them to “fat models” like herself.
“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 a fake model is,” she stated. “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 and don’t let all the losers on Instagram stop you.”
This isn't the first time Ashley has spoken out against body shamers, just last month she slammed the use of the term "real" when it comes to describing women.
"We are all real women. I can’t stand it when I read comments that say—‘finally, a real woman.’ No matter your size/shape/amount of cellulite—we are in this together.”
