Ashley Graham is protected from obesity, but what about Lizzo?
Ashley Graham, an oversized model, has received a lot of support after being humiliated by a public figure.
Journalist Sameera Khan: ‘The active slimming movement is getting out of control’
It all starts after Sameera Khan—a journalist and beauty pageant titleholder—released a now-deleted tweet Sunday night.
Sameera specifically uploaded two photos of Ashley wearing a pretty dress and she wrote, “The fat movement is spiraling out of control.”
She also embarrassed Ashley’s mother and went so far as to call her a “(fat) whore”.

Sameera went on to allege that “poor, stressed men prefer fat women like Ashley Graham.”
At the risk of sounding gross, I’d let Ashley Graham break my penis and keep that thing in a booty box like the Predator. pic.twitter.com/izsafABk66

Twitter sided with Ashley Graham, who sparked an empowering trend
When Sameera’s tweet started gaining attention, it quickly became the talk of the timeline and Sameera was being eaten alive!
People joined in with the journalist, with one supporter saying she must have “caught her man watching Ashley Graham’s IG.”

Ashley Graham is hot AF and this woman going crazy for being skinny is not the golden ticket to success as she said.
Also, being hungry stresses you out. Eat a piece of damn Snickers, Sameera. https://t.co/6nVw64uwdV

That girl actually went on Twitter with that well-filtered not-so-beautiful photo and tried to get to the pretty Ashley Graham. She’s been dragged throughout this app as she should be.

That girl must have caught her man watching Ashley Graham’s IG or something. Damn, maybe she’s looking and really envious of what she’s seeing but can’t handle. 😂😂😭

Several users shared that the attempt to shame Ashley was a complete failure and basically backfired.
I love the type of tweets like “body positivity WAS TOO GOOD” and then the picture of a fat person looking as hot as anyone on Earth has ever seen.

I guess we can all thank Sameera for making the day “longing for Ashley Graham together” on twitter
– Fairy Gothmother, MD (@jenny2x4) December 19, 2022
Others ignore the hate and love the model.
So anyway, let’s celebrate Ashley Graham in all of her GOLDEN VILLAGE glamor instead of giving the wretched haters free influence 🤩 pic.twitter.com/kPkukoxdT0
– Innocent Nicole Nichelle (@alamanecer) December 19, 2022
Ashley herself soon joined in, though she chose to take the high road and ignite a trend that celebrates body positivity in an unpretentious way.
Quote this tweet with a photo of you taking ‘fat positivity’ too far. I will start. pic.twitter.com/WlmyYr13Kh
– Ashley Graham (@ashleygraham) December 19, 2022
Quickly, others started sharing photos of themselves embracing their bodies. As a result, Sameera’s tweet just inspired people to have even more “fat positivity”!
And I will do it again ♀️ https://t.co/DbpBBW5qM2 pic.twitter.com/JcSw4MQAPh

However, where is the love for Lizzo?
However, amid support for Ashley, some are beginning to question whether “oversized” people who don’t fit society’s beauty standards will receive the same recognition. No.
I’m so glad people are coming to protect Ashley Graham against some evil phobia and shame.
I also ask that we also save that energy for people whose “oversized” bodies don’t fit society’s beauty standards.
– Laura Bogart (@LDBogart) December 20, 2022
In particular, Lizzo was nurtured, as many felt that people would not have the same positive energy as the “Rumors” singer.
Hmm, I wish Lizzo had such unity but don’t let me open that deep box

There’s no reason why I would say it. Lizzo gets attacked all day for wearing the same clothes but the chubby Ashley Graham is protected :/ like it’s exhausting https://t.co/0nps2nqpQr

Can black women rally around Lizzo when she’s fat as shameless as white women ride for Ashley Graham these days?
And can white grease and non-black grease better protect Lizzo? I’ll see you guys riding for my girls the same.
– Cierra (@CierraCierra25) December 19, 2022
While it’s great that people roast that embarrassingly fat dog, where’s the same energy for fat people who don’t look like Ashley Graham? Or for fat black women (Lizzo)?? Really fat people….🥲

When Ashley Graham does it.. it’s DURABILITY & NO FEAR… but when LIZZO does it…….

Even so, many fans enjoy the fact that Ashley Graham and Lizzo are still free-living in the minds of critics. In the words of Nicki Minaj, “Fuck you skinny bastards!”
Lizzo and Ashley Graham have you guys fighting every week >>> https://t.co/1q9S9QHrem

The way lizzo and Ashley graham make these skinny women flutter to the bottom is just amazing. 😂

Lizzo and Ashley Graham really make you fall in love and all they do is be pretty and silent.. pic.twitter.com/A8LbVFEo9s
