Bella Ha­did gets body shamed for thin ap­pear­ance

Calgary Sun - - SHOWBIZ - — WENN

Bella Ha­did has been bodyshamed on so­cial me­dia af­ter speak­ing about her health in an on­line video.

The model was filmed for Love mag­a­zine’s spe­cial all-video is­sue on In­sta­gram wear­ing a se­lec­tion of glam­orous bathing suits, and spoke at length about feel­ing com­fort­able in her own skin.

“Grow­ing up, I def­i­nitely was not the most con­fi­dent per­son,” she said in the video clip. “I kind of was al­ways search­ing, so I guess when I felt the most beau­ti­ful was very re­cently, in the past two years, when my health was at its best, my love was with me and around me.”

How­ever, the 22-year-old swiftly re­ceived a num­ber of neg­a­tive com­ments over her slim physique.

“This is truly sad,” one In­sta­gram user wrote. “She’s talk­ing about self ac­cep­tance as she’s with­er­ing away to bones. The mod­el­ing in­dus­try is bar­baric and dis­gust­ing with its ‘beauty’ stan­dards.”
