Body shaming is the act of making fun of or giving negative comments about someone’s physical appearance; weight or size. It’s basically a form of bullying and abuse and no one should go through that ever. Most victims of body shaming are mostly women.
Female celebs are no exception as being in the spotlight means they’re easy targets for haters to criticise the way they look based on their body size. Janna Nick recently shared her experience of being body shamed in an Instagram post.
Actress and singer Janna Nick posted a video yesterday (Tuesday, 24th May) on her Instagram where we can see her working out in a gym. Throughout the video, the actress gave a voice-over commentary sharing her experience of being a victim of body shaming.
In the commentary, the 26-year-old said that she never cared about negative comments about her size and weight before but she felt sad on that particular day. The “Gatal” singer also revealed that she even considered surgery after being overwhelmed with the body shaming comments she received on social media.
“It’s okay, I will prove that I can lose weight”, she said as she was seen working out. Despite being body shamed and the constant online abuse, the “Perfect Raya” star vows to never do the same to others. Janna ended the video by reminding everyone that body shaming is not okay. “To those watching this video, please stop body shaming others, it’s not cool!.”
As seen above, fans and even fellow celebrities showed their support for the actress in the comments. Many were praising Janna for posting the video to raise more awareness on body shaming while others shared how much they relate to her struggles. Celebs encouraged the Kedah-born star to keep doing her best and do whatever makes her happy.
