Iskra Lawrence, best known as the plus size model who stripped down in the subway, was recently criticized for not actually being "plus size".

Remember: it's your body.
America's Next Top Model has returned and this time Tyra's been replaced by Ashley Graham, Rita Ora, and... other people.

The community isn't happy.
