The ever-irritating Piers Morgan was NOT thrilled when super-gorgeous supermodel Tess Holliday showed off her curves on the cover of Cosmo UK in a fabulous green bathing suit.
“As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo. Apparently we’re supposed to view it as a ‘huge step forward for body positivity.’ What a load of old baloney. This cover is just as dangerous & misguided as celebrating size zero models.”
What a load of bollocks.
Tess was having NONE of that, of course, first tweeting out she was proud of the way her cover looked and hoped it would change the attitude of young girls who might be ashamed of the way they look.
“I’m at the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life now and it took me being the heaviest to finally love myself,” she said in the magazine’s interview.
Then, specifically addressing Piers and his followers:
“To everyone saying I’m a burden to the British health care system, I’m american so you don’t have to worry about my fat ass. Worry about what horrible people you are by whining about how me being on the cover of a glossy magazine impacts your small minded life.”
What a silly non-issue. Power to Tess and Piers can just fuck off.
My Cosmo cover headline should have said “FAT GIRLS HAVE SEX TOO! (& it’s bomb)”
