Controversial and highly outspoken hypnotherapist and life coach Steve Miller slammed size 26 model Tess Holliday over her "normalization of obesity".
Tess has recently made history by being the first model of her size to land high-profile campaigns, contracts and magazine covers. The body-positivity activist and inspirational mom of two may have challenged social norms, but Mr. Miller is challenging what she's advocating.
"Her assertion that being a size 26 in undies is a good look is a naive error of judgement, and one that would be better viewed as a fat aversion," says the UK based hypnotherapist and life coach. "Of course she is bound to boast so many followers because there are sadly a lot of fat women out there who are in denial about the dangers of being too fat."
The supermodel isn't a stranger to being called out on her larger frame. With being in the spotlight and having her image splashed across the media, it was only a matter of time before the critics came out.
"I've been called fat my whole life. I am fat, so it's kind of silly to get mad about it." Tess told The Guardian in a recent interview.
"The last thing we want to see is a plus-size American barging into UK shores showing us how it's cool to love your fat!" Steve commented. His outspoken candour has landed him the title of "The Simon Cowell of the slimming world".
