During their conversation, Ashley spoke about her historic 2016 Sports Illustrated photo shoot, in which she became the first Size 16 model to grace the cover.

“The second year that I tried out, I got it and I was a rookie. It was a fantastic photo shoot, great images and boom! I got the cover,” she said.

“There was another model who was so upset that I had gotten the cover and she said I was very large and that women my size should not be on the cover,” she went on to say.

“You can go look it up,” she said, revealing that the model’s name started with a “C.”

You told me, ‘I just want to let you know that I was talking about you and I defended you.’ First of all, I’m meeting Naomi Campbell for the first time and she just defended me. Heart is racing! Thank you!” Ashley went on to say.

“Well, I’ll defend you again right now because I don’t think that person had the right to say that. It’s your time now,” Naomi went on to say.
