Ashley Graham says she feels like she just can’t win after facing a pretty nasty backlash from fans shaming her for “slimming down to meet Hollywood’s standards”. Graham has always maintained that she works out to stay fit and healthy, not to lose weight. She posted this photo to her Instagram account only days ago to prove she is NOT slimming down for anyone!

“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. 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 needs to end. I’m over it.”

Graham hopes that in speaking out against body shaming she can help some haters rethink “spewing negativity”.
