Former Bachelorette Georgia Love has shared why she drew attention to the recent bullying she suffered after photos of her were published online.
The 28-year-old was cruelly labelled as having “thunder thighs” by a commenter on an article featuring paparazzi images of Love exercising outdoors.
The journalist told Mamamia during a Facebook Live interview she felt it was important to draw attention to the criticism rather than ignore it.
“I’m not a size 6, I’m not a Victoria Secret model but I’m not fat, either, and if these things are being said about me, when of all things in those pictures, I was exercising,” she said.
“I thought if people are saying this about me, in that situation, imagine what they’re saying to anyone else.”
Love said her stand was made not to defend her own sensitivity but of others who may have been hurt by the implied comparison.
“I’m not worried by a troll behind a keyboard calling me fat,” she said.
“But I know that a lot of other people are extremely affected by things like that so I think it is someone like me who, you know, is willing to take a stand, needs to.”
