Never one to keep quiet about an injustice, Lizzo posted a TikTok video aimed at her judgmental shamers. The video consisted of work-outs and exercises, with a voice explaining that she's not working out to have your ideal body type. She went on to tell people to mind their own business because that's what she's doing, minding her business.
Instantly earning praise, Lizzo continues to be a leader and advocate for body acceptance, regardless of size, color, or ability.

According to Yahoo, "26-year-old model Jill Kortleve became the first plus-size model to walk in a Chanel fashion show since Crystal Renn walked in the 2011 Cruise Collection show in May 2010", but the fashion world - and society at large - is torn regarding Kortleve's plus status. Based on the photos alone, we wouldn't label her as such, but the model world isn't the same one we're all living in.
Congrats to Kortleve, who also walked for Jacquemus, Valentino and Alexander McQueen. In February she took the runway for Fendi in Milan along with fellow plus-size model Paloma Elsesser.
