“Fat people are still getting the short end of this movement,” Lizzo said. “We’re still getting talked about, memed, shamed,” but “no one cares anymore.”

ModelAshley Grahamtold WSJ Magazine in February she hated constantly discussing her body but continues to because no one discussed it with her growing up.

“This is why I don’t post like the ‘perfect’ Instagram photos. I keep it real and raw constantly because I want [people] to know that there are women with cellulite, with back fat, with stretch marks... There are a lot of curvy women, plus-size women, fat women, whatever you want to call them.”
