A newlywed fashion blogger has been publicly bullied for her honeymoon photos.

A newlywed has sent a powerful message to bullies who fat-shamed her after returning home from her beachside honeymoon.

In an inspiring Instagram post, London-based blogger Callie Thorpe, called out the so-called “human beings” for their repulsive behaviour.

The Marie Claire columnist was subject to internet trolls’ taunts and vicious comments and, after arriving back from her honeymoon in South America, it got too much for her to take.

“So, jet lag does things to a girl, like makes you irrationally cry over internet bullies who know nothing about you,” she wrote next to an image taken on her wedding day in August.

Not about to let the bullies stop her from posting gorgeous snaps of herself enjoying life, Callie told any trolls reading exactly what they could do.

“Well I have a message to any ‘human beings’ that want to torment or bully me for my size, who want to go out of their way to stalk through my photos or seek me out on social media… Take a seat and ENJOY THE SHOW, that is my happy life.”

So, jet lag does things to a girl, like makes you irrationally cry over internet bullies who know nothing about you. Well I have a message to any ‘human beings’ that want to torment or bully me for my size, who want to go out of their way to stalk through my photos or seek me out on social media… Take a seat and ENJOY THE SHOW, that is my happy life. ❤ Grab some popcorn because it doesn’t get much better than this. So I have extra weight, I also have ridiculously wonderful friends, a great job and a person that loves me. ALL OF ME from head to toe, big or small, fat or thin. I have a constant, loving kind, companion, to travel with, to laugh with to ease the pain during the bad times in life. Sadly all you have is anger and hatred. So I’ll take being fat, I’d rather be overweight and full of love than an image of perfection and lonely. But on this final note I send you nothing but love and light and hope that one day you get even a tiny drop of what I have because it sure sounds lonely on that pedestal of yours up there.

Callie told them to “grab some popcorn” if they want to keep watching her enjoy the love and happiness in her life, something she suspected the trolls did not have much of.

“So I have extra weight, I also have ridiculously wonderful friends, a great job and a person that loves me,” she wrote.

“ALL OF ME from head to toe, big or small, fat or thin. I have a constant, loving kind, companion, to travel with, to laugh with to ease the pain during the bad times in life.

“Sadly all you have is anger and hatred.”

This isn’t the first time Callie has promoted self-acceptance and body positivity.

In addition to posting snaps where she highlights and celebrates her cellulite or posts a “naked, chubby, seductive version of the famous Nirvana cover”, the style blogger has been encouraging women to share their own stories through Instagram account, The Confidence Corner.

There she reposts beautiful and candid posts of inspiring women who are rocking their body confidence.

In an interview with website The Flash Pack in August, Callie describes her blog ‘From the Corners of the Curve’ as “body shame-free”.

“I speak openly and honestly about my journey to self-confidence and what it means to find peace with yourself,” she said.

Callie said since creating the blog in 2012, writing posts has helped her to accept herself.

“Blogging has changed my outlook completely on how I view and treat myself. Now I treat myself and others with kindness and less judgement,” she told The Flash Pack.

“It has been important for me to share with other women the freedom in finding contentment with your body. Of course we all have our down days, but we should never let anyone make us feel bad for the way we are.

“I believe women of all sizes should be able to enjoy fashion and shouldn’t have to wait to be a certain size to wear fashionable clothes.”
