Tess Holliday Revealed She's Recovering from Anorexia — Twitter's Response Highlights a Major Issue
On Saturday, Tess Holliday took to Twitter to share a health-related update with her followers. "I'm anorexic & in recovery," she wrote. "I'm not ashamed to say it out loud anymore. I'm the result of a culture that celebrates thinness & equates that to worth, but I get to write my own narrative now. I'm finally able to care for a body that I've punished my entire life & I am finally free."
In a follow-up post on Instagram, the model asked that everyone refrain from making any comments about her body. "For folks like me that are trying to reframe our relationships with our bodies & heal, hearing comments about weight is triggering as hell," she wrote in her caption. "It sets us back in our progress — and when people working on themselves see you commenting to me that way, it hurts THEM, not just me."
