People like this should be banned from the gym. London bodybuilder Diana Andrews outraged social media recently when she uploaded a photo of a woman on a treadmill to her Instagram story with the caption ‘love handles.’
She made it that much worse when she implied that the woman, who was on the phone in the photo, was probably ordering burgers for delivery.
Honestly, what ever happened to the old saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?”
Body shaming is a serious issue online, and it really can discourage those looking to make a positive change to their lives. It doesn’t matter what someone looks like to others, as long as they feel good and are healthy themselves.
Andrews received a huge backlash online and was even forced to delete a number of her social media accounts.

“I realised that I was wrong to make this silly joke. It wasn’t my intention to body shame, hurt or disrespect anyone,” Andrews said on Snapchat.
Honestly, people like this are just bullies.
