Cheryl Tiegs Apologizes for Body Shaming Ashley Graham

Cheryl Tiegs has issued an apology after facing backlash for body shaming Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model Ashley Graham.

The 68-year-old model was asked last week to comment on Ashley being the first plus-size model featured on the famous magazine’s cover.

“I don’t like that we’re talking about full-figured women because it’s glamorizing them because your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches],” Cheryl said. “I don’t think it’s healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don’t think it’s healthy in the long run.”

Cheryl took to her Twitter account the other day to apologize to anyone she offended.

“My sincere apologies to everyone I have hurt. I truly just want everyone to be healthy & happy,” Cheryl tweeted.
