Attention, haters. Iskra Lawrence has no time for you.
On April 1, the model, who has appeared in American Eagle’s unretouched Aerie Real campaign, shut down an Instagram user who called her a “fat cow” with two perfect Instagram posts. In the caption of her first post, Lawrence wrote that a commenter had called her a “fat cow,” suggesting she ate “too many bags of crisps” (also known as potato chips). Lawrence responded in a truly badass way — giving all body-shamers a big f**k you, surrounded by bags of chips.
“This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT,” she wrote in the caption.
I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself…This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT. Thanks for the inspirational words on a recent pic @zseanzbrown “Fat cow. It’s only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.” Opinions are like arseholes – everyone’s got one thanks to the dream team for making this happen at work today by @ricktphoto @mandywinrow @nickigillonstylist
To top it off, Lawrence posted a video that shows her eating chips in slow motion and giving her critics the middle finger.
Had to make a #slow-mo too…This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT. Thanks for the inspirational words on a recent pic @zseanzbrown “Fat cow. It’s only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.” Ps I do not condone binge eating. I eat whatever I want in moderation. I will eat crisps but I’ll also make healthy home cooked meals and workout regularly. The message is who gives a F what anyone else thinks of you. YOU are the only one who decides yourself worth And sorry I’m usually not rude or give anyone the finger but these online trolls smdh #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful
As Aerie’s “Role Model,” Lawrence has made it her mission to promote the idea that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
“I spent so many years being repeatedly rejected and told I wasn’t good enough,” Lawrence told The Huffington Post in February. “It took a huge toll on my self-esteem until I realized I am more than my body and that actually our beauty comes from diversity.”
