Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio is taking a stand against critics who claim she is too thin. After she was recently slammed for her slender frame, the 23-year-old model took to Instagram to sound off on the subject – while showing off her trim figure in a bikini-clad selfie.
“I'm proud of my body and I'm not gonna [sic] let any of you bully me just because I'm skinny!” she wrote. “Everybody is different and every metabolism is different!”
I'm proud of my body and I'm not gonna let any of you bully me just because I'm skinny! Every body is different, and every metabolism is different! I eat a lot, so next time u decide to tell me to eat a burger remember I probably eat more burgers than you, I've always been skinnier, and probably will always be, I workout, I'm healthy and I'm happy! The amount of hate I see thrown at me and to other model friends that I know are naturally skinny it's ridiculous! U don't see us shaming other types of bodies so please don't come and shame ours! Be happy with ur body and stop shaming others! Whether they are skinny, fat, fit, with big boobs, small boobs etc! Don't share hate! Be happy ☺️❤️
The Portuguese beauty added: “I eat a lot, so next time you decide to tell me to eat a burger, remember I probably eat more burgers than you. I’ve always been skinnier and probably always will be. I work out, I’m healthy and I’m happy!”
Sara's post comes in the wake of Victoria’s Secret most recent and controversial “The Perfect Body” campaign, which was dubbed “irresponsible” and “harmful” in a Change.org petition. The lingerie giant later changed their slogan to “A Body For Everybody.”
Meanwhile, Victoria’s Secret is gearing up for its annual fashion show, which will showcase not one, but two Fantasy Bras, worn by Brazilian beauties and friends Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande are slated to perform during the fashion event, which takes place in London on Dec. 2.
