It appears Ashley Graham can’t win. As a plus-size model she is used to being criticized for her weight but after Graham posted a photo captioned “Glam squad magic” she heard from her followers yet again, only this time it was because she supposedly appeared too thin.
According to Cosmo, the commenters went crazy saying she looked slimmer than usual. “Why are you changing yourself? I thought you were comfortable being yourself and being plus size,” one commenter wrote. ‘Fake fat person…You’re not overweight, stop saying you are,” another wrote.
When she posted this photo of herself at the gym, she got comments like, “We all see you losing more and more weight but still saying you are plus sized,” and “It’s obvious she wanted to be thinner all this time.”

When she’d had enough, Graham responded to the haters beautifully:
“People come on my page and body shame me because I’m too big, because I’m too small, because I’m not good enough for their standards…But at the end of the day I’m good enough for me,” she wrote. “Angles will make anyone look bigger or smaller and I just happen to know mine.”
She also responded on Snapchat, with an image of herself on the runway that read, “I will not let others dictate what they think my body should look like for their own comfort, and neither should you.” Touché.
