Tasha Cobbs Leonard took to her social media account to speak up for curvey women who may not have the courage, self esteem or platform to speak up for themselves. The singer, who is plus size herself, called it a ‘shame and an indication of immaturity’.
media exposes the heart of people. “sometimes” You ARE what you “post”
to be! As a woman who has struggled with weight ALL of my life I believe
it is a part of my responsibility to use my platform to speak up for
those curvy or fluffy girls who may not have the courage, self esteem,
or platform to speak up for themselves! Body shaming is an absolute
SHAME and a true indication of immaturity. We live in a society of
people who post, joke, and belittle others in order to make themselves
feel better about themselves or to cover THEIR insecurities! Be bigger
than that! Of course your negative, degrading, and heartless posts will
tickle the fancy of those who are attracted to things of that nature…
but isn’t there more to live for?! We’ve got to do better guys! It’s not
funny! It’s not cute! It doesn’t make you any less LAME. PERIOD. Shout
out to all my plus sized Guys and Girls out there doing their thing!!!
You absolutely ROCK!!!”.
