Neha Dhupia slams fashion website for fat shaming
Bollywood actor Neha Dhupia on Saturday slammed a fashion website for commenting on her weight gain post pregnancy.
In a post on her Twitter page, the Neha made it clear that she is not bothered about being fat shamed but the trend should stop.
Captioning the post “Thank you, next!” The actress wrote, “I don’t owe anyone an explanation because fat shaming like this doesn’t bother me one bit. But I do want to address this as a larger problem because fatshaming needs to stop for EVERYONE and not just celebs.”
“As a new mom, I want to be fit, healthy and energetic for my daughter. So I work out everyday, sometimes twice a day because for me…’Fitness’ is a priority and not ‘fitting into’ society’s standards regarding looks. And I hope in the future people are kinder to each other while making such vapid and vile comments. To quote @Pattonoswalt…’Be kind. It’s chaos out there,’” read the tweet shared by thousands.
