This body-positive influencer just destroyed Khloe Kardashian for her post on how to ‘look thin AF’
She called Khloe fatphobic, too
by Ari Bines
While Khloe was celebrating her baby shower and baby daddy Tristan's birthday over the weekend, a popular body positive influencer named Megan Jayne Crabbe was busy slamming the pregnant Kardashian for an article she wrote for her app called "5 Hacks to Look Thin AF in Your Pics."
Apparently Khloe Kardashian, one of the most followed celebrities on social media thought it was a good idea to write an article titled '5 Hacks to Look Thin AF in Your Pics'. According to Khloe looking 'thin AF' shows people that you have a 'sick bod' and gets 'your Insta comments to blow the f*ck up'. Nothing like teaching millions of your young fans that being as thin as possible will make you more beautiful AND more popular! So in response, here are my 5 Hacks to Not Giving AF About Looking Thin in Your Pics! 1. Remember that we've all been sold the idea that thinness = happiness by multi-billion dollar corporations that first taught us to see our bodies as 'flawed' 100 years ago, and after realising they could make a shit tonne of money from it, never stopped. Say diet cultureeeee on 3! 2. Remind yourself that your body doesn't exist for the viewing pleasure of other people, since you're not an inanimate object up for display, you're a living, breathing, multi-dimensional human being and how your body looks is the least important thing about you. *Flash!* 3. Realise that most of the 'thin AF' pictures you compare yourself to have been Photoshopped to hell and back and aren't attainable for any living human anyway! Smiiiiileeeee! 4. Always wear whatever the fuck you want and pose however the fuck you want and angle your camera however the fuck you want. Fuck flattering. 5. Stop following people who promote fatphobic nonsense and make you believe that looking 'thin AF' is something you need to aspire to. Seriously. Thanks for the tips Khloe, but I've had enough diet culture already for a lifetime, so you can keep them. I'll be over here looking chubby AF and being 100% cool with that. Byeeeeee. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 #RevengeBody
In her post, she wrote "Nothing like teaching millions of your young fans that being as thin as possible will make you more beautiful AND more popular!"
In retaliation to the article, Crabbe listed her own "hacks" on not giving a damn about looking thin in pictures. She pointed out to her followers that the old idea of thinness equating to happiness is what churns out dollars for multi-billion corporations. "Remind yourself that your body doesn't exist for the viewing pleasure of other people," she added.
Her other pointers included wearing whatever one feels most confident in and that many pictures girls compare themselves to have usually been Photoshopped. "Stop following people who promote fatphobic nonsense and make you believe that looking 'thin AF' is something you need to aspire to. Seriously."
Khloe has yet to respond to the backlash, but I'm hoping she'll issue an apology statement to simmer down the drama.
