Model Bridget Malcolm Hits Back at Internet Trolls Over Thin Frame

Being naturally thin and tall is touted by many as "model material," but it doesn't seem to stop outsiders looking in from commenting harshly. Victoria's Secret model Bridget Malcolm goes to the gym twice a day, lives by a vegan diet and just so happens to have a small frame, but Internet trolls don't seem to care if this is who she is. The 23-year-old has been branded as "anorexic" by many, and she is sick of it, finally hitting back this week and insisting that not only is she not anorexic, but she is most definitely "fit and healthy."

I may not be the curviest but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do. Maybe today take a look inside yourself and wonder why you feel the need to shame strangers over the Internet about their bodies. Peace and love to you all - let's change the conversation." The Australian-born beauty has worked with Burberry, H&M, Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger, and recently took part in the Victoria's Secret show. But her preparation for it, which included rigorous gym sessions and vegan eating caused an uproar, as she shamed those for not knowing the harms of a poor diet. In an interview with Sydney Morning Herald, she said "It blows my mind that people can be so blind to the impact that their dietary and lifestyle choices are having on the environment and on their own bodies."

She also discussed her concern for the environment, saying that she supported designers like Stella McCartney whose garments are cruelty-free.

"I want to get skinny but this is like kind of unhealthy," one user wrote. And on another image of her with panties saying, "kiss this," fans responded with, "Kiss what?"

Her desire to be fit, regardless of whether fans believe she is healthy or not, is very apparent. The model, in preparation for hitting the Victoria's Secret runway for their annual fashion show, said that she tried to stay in the best shape she could. "Every time I saw a horizontal surface I planked," she said.

What are your thoughts on how people commented on this model's photos? Do you think Bridget responded the right way?
