Tess Holliday Fires Back at Body Shamers Hating on Her 'Cosmopolitan UK' Cover

Model Tess Holliday is on the cover of the new issue of Cosmopolitan UK, and she’s not here for Piers Morgan or anyone else body shaming her photos.

If you missed it, Piers posted Tess‘ cover and slammed the magazine for a “load of baloney.”

Piers wrote, “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.”

Tess posted on Twitter, speaking to all her haters, “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.

    I agree with Piers. She’s morbidly obese and unhealthy. That’s not body shaming, that’s the plain truth. She is a role model for NO ONE. I find her to be obnoxious too.

    Lots of Americans are fat.

    I too was very heavy and had many many health issues, since then I’m now down considerable and loving life without pain, and heath problems… I have to agree, at that weight it’s very very unhealth and not a fat shame at all but a reality check that fat is NOT HEATHY! Sorry Heather!…

    I hope everyone excusing their body/fat-shaming as “concern for her health” has taken the time to speak out every time Cosmo has featured a smoker, drug user, or similarly “unhealthy” person on their cover. If it was a health/fitness magazine, I might understand, but it’s nobody’s business except hers. Also, to presume she’s unhealthy just because she’s big (or that being unhealthy means she shouldn’t be on a magazine cover) is misguided and wrong.

    She’s more than just FAT. Morbidly OBESE. She’s so disgusting. Look at her backward bent knees who can’t even hold up her gross fat ass up.

    Hahaha did I touch a nerve there fatty? Obviously you’re filled with cholesterol and disgusting lumps of cellulites because only fatties get offended by being told the truth. Or are you gonna say you’re “curvy” HAHAHA Stop sugarcoating shit that’s why you’re getting OBESE.

    “to presume she’s unhealthy just because she’s big”

    You are joking, right? She’s 320 pounds, easy! There’s absolutely nothing healthy about that.

    What’s ridiculous about this is not that she’s fat, but that so many people are coming to her defence with stupid arguments like this.

    Being OBESE is UNHEALTHY!
