Lucy Hale Called Herself ‘Fat’ on Instagram, and People Are Not Pleased

Lucy has the right to feel however she wants about her own body, but we also hope she remembers that fatness is not a bad thing. Secondly, by including the word “ugh”, Hale suggests her disgust at the idea of being fat, which is really just a body type and nothing more.

The Pretty Little Liars star shared a cute snap of herself with her father on Sunday (18Jun17) to coincide with the Father’s Day holiday.

Lucy’s message to her father wasn’t controversial, but something she said in the comments of the photo isn’t sitting right with a lot of people. “You weren’t, and even if you were, who cares?” one person commented. How many young girls are going to see that comment that look up to YOU.

“‘Fat”? You look a healthy size. You may be thinner now but were never “fat”.

“As a public figure you shouldn’t be commenting on how fat you were specially when you look like a stick”, one comment says. “You know what it’s like, there you are with somebody, let’s say they’re like you [motioning to Jedediah Bila]”.

A few of her fans knew the time, though. She can’t act like she has a flawless life just because she’s famous and has fans.

Sure, while Luce is 100% entitled to feel however she wants about her body, celebrities and influencers should be especially considerate about how they talk address body image issues online. Being overweight or fat isn’t a bad thing; it’s just a state of your body.

Some fans shared that they were so disappointed with the comment and planned to unfollow Lucy, and by Monday (19Jun17), having viewed hundreds of negative responses, she had removed every single comment from the original post.
