This Man Was Fat-Shamed. You Won't Believe What His Bad-Ass Girlfriend Did About It!

July 10, 2015 2 min read

It was a rude awakening for Ashley Stevens who discovered that the internet was aggressively hating on her boyfriend, Christopher. The comments came from a photo she posted to Reddit which she thought was cute and funny, but apparently internet trolls were too busy laughing and jeering at her boyfriend's looks and weight to even get the joke. Ashley snapped a cute selfie after catching a bouquet at her friend's wedding, and sneakily captured the expressions of both her boyfriend and father in the background. But commenters were poking fun at Christopher's weight, along with calling him "disgusting", "ugly" and asking if he had Down Syndrome. body shaming Ashley was shocked, and took to Facebook to defend Christopher and fire back at the shamers! "He may not have rock hard abs, but why does that even matter when you are trying to find someone to spend the rest of your life with?" she wrote. "He is so thoughtful and patient, he always shows me how he loves me in little ways, he is my best friend." Despite the firestorm of negativity and shaming within the Reddit threads, some commenters came to Christopher's defence as well. "It's almost as if there is more to relationships than physical attributes. Imagine that." mused one commenter. It looks as though we are still far off from a world that just accepts people and looks beyond appearances. But at least Ashley took a stand to try and combat the judgement and criticism she so randomly received! Share your thoughts with us on this story! Have you seen our fitness videos?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
