This Female Jogger Totally OWNS Fat-Shamer Who Heckled Her

Lindsey Swift was going for her regular evening jog, when an unexpected heckle came from a passing van. The 25-year-old Brit was mocked by a man singing Mika’s Big Girl (You Are Beautiful). Dumbfounded, Lindsey took to her Facebook page to express what had happened. She regretted not being able to confront the man personally, but seriously took him down with this now viral open letter. "To the idiot who thought it was OK to heckle me with fat jokes on my run yesterday. Your comment was a clear indication of both your incredibly witty repartee and a feat of observational comedy. I am indeed a big girl, and I am indeed beautiful. Thanks for noticing." Lindsey begins. [bctt tweet="This Female Jogger Totally OWNS Fat-Shamer Who Heckled Her"] "Let me make one thing very clear, I am not ashamed of my body. It has never stopped me from doing anything I want." the letter goes on to read. Lindsey also expresses her deeply personal decision to start getting in shape, "I thought it would be a fun thing to do, and good for my health. Not that I have to justify my body to you, but I have a goal to run 10k, and I will get there." "Your behaviour is not normal, and your manners are well below par. Most importantly though, I forgive you. Here's hoping that anyone with a goal, fat or thin, isn't put off by this kind of thing. I know I haven't been. Engage your brain before opening your mouth." The letter has already gotten over 15,000 shares and is growing. We love seeing body positivity being shared through the internet! What are your thoughts? Have you ever epically taken down a hater?
