You'd think that, if someone was a fitness instructor, committed to helping others get in shape, he or she would not be a target for body shaming or cyberbullying. You'd think that.
It's actually quite the opposite. Blogilates founder Cassey Ho, who posts uplifting and inspirational messages to social media, is constantly bombarded with criticism about her body. Apparently, with popularity — and, in this case, over two million YouTube subscribers — comes a lot of hurtful feedback.
So, she decided to make a video — and not one of her usual instructional videos on squats or lunges. It's about addressing the people who make others feel badly about the way they look.
In her "'Perfect' Body" video, which now has almost 1.3 million views on YouTube, Ho reads mean comments about herself, then Photoshops herself into what her followers want her to look like: a wider gap between her thighs, larger breasts, a "slimmer waist and a bigger butt."
