No one is immune to cyber bullies, especially when it comes to body shaming. Not even fitness trainers–just ask Cassey Ho. Ho, who runs a fitness blog called, Blogilates, regularly receives unwarranted negative comments and remarks shaming the trainer on her physical appearance. In response to the criticizing, Ho put together an impressive video clip that shows the beautiful trainer Photoshop her body in “live view” to match the beauty standards of the hypercritical internet.
We’ve seen a handful of other videos of this sort, all which were met with positive feedback. Despite, being well received and generally heralded as a necessary combatant of body shaming, the issue is still very clearly a problem. Hopefully, the videos will continue to raise awareness and promote positive change in the way we perceive our body image.
Whether we want to believe it or not, photographers do play a role in these unfair beauty standards. As a community, it’s possible to bring change by seeing and photographing the beauty in people of all shapes, sizes, and color.
