Anywhere you go, trolls will always be trolls.
Some Bollywood actresses have spoken of their body shaming experiences and how they responded to them.
A few weeks ago, Bollywood actress Zarine Khan posted a picture of when she was overweight, on Instagram and mentioned how proud she was of her body saying, “Along with the weight loss came a lot of stretch marks but instead of feeling ashamed of it and trying to hide it, I believe in flaunting it.” She went from being 100 kilos to 57 kilos!
Some days ago, Parineeti Chopra posted an old picture of herself and said that constant criticism encouraged her to get fitter. She lost some kilos and went from a size 38 to a size 30. The actress said on Instagram,”I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them.”
In March, Sonam Kapoor defended actress Anushka Sharma on Twitter after Anushka tweeted that she was constantly criticised for being too thin. She said, “(Anushka) people are just J of you! Coz you’re a self-respecting intelligent successful beautiful woman!!!”
Nollywood actors too have suffered in the hands of internet bullies because of their body size. Lilian Esoro was the latest, Uche Jombo too got slammed a while back.
