A few of weeks ago, I saw a pretty disturbing post on Black Girl Long Hair about Chrisette Michele. What started as an innocent celebrity hair posting turned into a weight-bashing. My favorite of the comments:
"chrisette has packed them on. i saw a youtube video of her and she just looked not very good. she looked like a grandmom from waist down.
she’s young, in the spotlight and should be looking her best or better. not skinny but certainly having a more youthful looking body, imo.
i just don’t like seeing overweight bw, esp. when they don’t have to be."
I've seen too much of this on the internet lately, and with everyone having so much access this will not be disappearing anytime soon. I just wanted to give my two cents on the issue. We really need to evaluate how we approach health vs. body image.
