Piers Morgan blasts the new Cosmopolitan cover featuring plus-size model Tess Holliday; she responds

 

Plus-size model Tess Holliday, 33, is the cover girl for the latest edition of Cosmopolitan UK and the aim is to promote body positivity. But Piers Morgan doesn’t agree and thinks that it will only serve to encourage an unhealthy weight.

The TV personality reacted to the cover writing:

As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo.
Apparently we’re supposed to view it as a ‘huge step forward for body positivity.’ What a load of old baloney.
This cover is just as dangerous & misguided as celebrating size zero models.

Piers Morgan blasts the new Cosmopolitan cover featuring plus-size model Tess Holliday; she responds

Piers got a lot of support for his position, but some people called him out and told him that he is fat-shaming Jess.

In reply, Jess said:

To everyone saying I’m a burden to the British health care system, I’m american so you don’t have to worry about my fat ass. Worry about what horrible people you are by whining about how me being on the cover of a glossy magazine impacts your small minded life.

Tess’ Cosmo article is about her battling depression over her weight. She also opens up about being sexually assaulted when she was younger. Tess posted the cover of the mag herself, saying she was proud of the way it looked and hoped it would change the attitude of young girls who might be ashamed of the way they look.
