✨?I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself…This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT. Thanks for the inspirational words on a recent pic @zseanzbrown ?? “Fat cow. It’s only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.” Opinions are like arseholes – everyone’s got one? thanks to the dream team for making this happen at work today ? by @ricktphoto @mandywinrow @nickigillonstylist

Nonetheless, 25-year old model Iskra Lawrence from Worcestershire found herself facing online criticism because she was a size 14 (heaven forbid). Fortunately for the blonde bombshell, she appears to have a wealth of character to accompany her looks, and she’s not taking the comments lying down. In fact, she’s firmly on her feet and heading into schools to talk to other young people about body image and being comfortable in your own skin.
“I tried extreme dieting, I was doing crazy exercise where I was passing out in gyms. I’ve been struggling with my body since I was about 12-years old,” she told the BBC, continuing: “We want to look after our bodies and respect them, but we also don’t need to feel guilty if we want to eat a pizza.”
Proving she has a sense of humour as well as a level headedness about her, Iskra answered her critics by posing for pictures surrounded by packets of crisps. The idea that anyone could criticise her appearance seems beyond the realms of the ridiculous, but the point here is not to comment on whether she is attractive or not, but simply that it’s entirely pointless to comment on something as personal as someone else’s appearance and size simply for the sake of being unkind.
Fortunately for the rest of us, the comments seem to have had a positive outcome as Iskra proves she’s both brains, beauty and good fun, and aims to help other people to aspire to the same combination of assets both inside and out by encouraging children to join her positive minded crusade which she’s calling Iskra’s Army… all whilst enjoying their health, wellbeing and the odd pizza as well!
