Sailor Brinkley Cook Speaks Out About Her 'Tone Deaf' GMA Interview

Sailor Brinkley Cook is a little disheartened about her Good Morning America interview that aired this morning (May 29) on ABC.

In a statement she posted to her Instagram Stories, the 21-year-old model expressed that she was upset in how her interview, where she addressed her body dysmorphia struggles, was presented.

“I’m a little upset about the GMA piece that aired this morning,” Sailor wrote. “I have nothing but respect for GMA and Deborah [Roberts], and have nothing negative to say about either one. But I wanted to set some things straight.”

She went on, “I understand that ‘comparisons to model mom’ and ‘eating disorder struggles’ are great taglines for click bait on news outlets. But when I agreed to do this interview I was under the impression that it would be in a positive light and would be inspirational. I ONLY agreed to do it during this awful time in America because I thought it would be a small beacon of positivity for people who have dealt with the same things as me.”

“I want to sincerely apologize for the tone deafness of the interview,” Sailor added, revealing that the content that wasn’t aired spread a different light on everything.

“If I were in control of the editing it would’ve been shown in a very different light and would’ve highlighted the inspirational things I said rather than the explanation of what I went through as a 15-year-old.”

Sailor continued, “I wanted to be a voice for people who are facing their mental illnesses and body image issues head-on right now in isolation…”

If you didn’t watch the preview for the interview, Sailor opened up in that about her past eating disorder stuggles and the constant comparisons to her mom, Christie Brinkley.

“I’m so f–king sick and tired of the photoshop 👏🏼 I’ve been so down on myself recently. Crying about my cellulite, letting the fat on my body ruin my day, getting mad that i’m not as skinny as i once was. The body dysmorphia and left over eating disorder tendencies have been coming in strong. As i come into myself as a young woman my body shifts and changes by the month, the ‘control’ i felt i once had over it has been completely stripped away from me. Hormones, emotions, growing pains,” she captioned a selfie.

“I go on instagram and scroll through photos of girls that look ‘perfect’.. shiny skin with not a bump to be seen, tiny little waist and thighs that look like chopsticks. And i compare myself, as if how someone on an app on my phone looks should directly correlate to how I feel about my body? What I’ve learned is that I run every day. I go to the gym 6 times a week. I fuel my body with beautiful food. I am so fucking LUCKY to have two legs and a healthy body that takes me through life. I’m so tired of thinking anything that makes up ME is something to be ashamed of. So as most 21st century girls would do, I’m putting this out there on instagram. Declaring that I have cellulite, and a stomach that doesn’t always look ‘pleasant’ (whatever the f–k that means) and I am 100% imperfect human. And I’m proud as hell of my body! If you’re out there hating on yourself, stop!! Appreciate yourself. You’re body is so magical. That’s all. Have a nice day. 😌” she went on to say.

She recently spoke out in her defense after being called out for using this kind of mask amid the pandemic…

“To everyone reaching out (very angrily) about me having a mask…my mom is an artist and does projects that require her to wear a mask,” she said, referring to Christie Brinkley.

“We didn’t buy them upon hearing about the spread of COVID-19. She kept one mask for each one of our family members and then donated the rest to local hospitals.”

She also said that her mother has been tracking down supplies, and donating 30% of proceeds from her Bellissima Prosecco brand to Direct Relief Foundation, and that they are “donating daily to organizations helping to create masks.”
