Fresh off her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show debut, Bridget Malcolm has had enough of Internet trolls targeting her body.
"Can we STOP with the skinny shaming please?" Malcolm writes alongside her mirror selfie, in which she wears black yoga pants and a low cut red Nike sports bra. "I am extremely fit and healthy and am not in the slightest anorexic. I have worked hard to look like this and am proud of my body."
Can we STOP with the skinny shaming please? I am extremely fit and healthy and am not in the slightest way anorexic. I have worked hard to look like this and am proud of my body. I may not be the curviest but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do. Maybe today take a look inside yourself and wonder why you feel the need to shame strangers over the Internet about their bodies. Peace and love to you all - let's change the conversation ❤️
The VS model, who has documented her preparation for the show by posting multiple gym photos and snippets of her vegan diet, told Sunrise Australia, "I had to start working on what I was eating three months before and then really stepping up the workouts."
Malcolm also conducted an interview with her NYC agency, The Society Management, where she spoke on the pressures induced by social media. "I was very active on Tumblr for a while but a lot of the questions asked essentially were cultivating a eating disorder and I was like, 'I'm really just born this way, I'm naturally thin!'" she says. "I want to present a healthy way of living and lifestyle, but I don't want to be in the position to educate people about something (staying skinny) like that."
The blond beauty isn't the only VS model to face body shamers — supermodel Gigi Hadid has also taken to social media to address cyberbullies for criticizing her curves. And let's not forget top model Magdalena Frackowiak, who flawlessly shut down a reporter backstage at the VS Fashion Show for asking a "stupid" question about what she was excited to eat after the show.
Show those haters, ladies!
