Last month while on holiday with her family, Stacy Solomon found herself on the receiving end of body shaming by the Sun. The newspaper printed a picture of Stacy in a bikini with the caption ‘Top flop … former X Factor singer Stacey gets that sinking feeling”.
Stacy responded on twitter with the following post:
The media is not solely to blame for the rise of negative body image in society. However, articles like this make it easy for individuals, who believe that the media is the main culprit, to point to it as evidence that substantiates their viewpoint.
