It’s a horrible experience to be made guilty about your body in any circumstances, but it’s especially awful if the person who is body shaming you is the one who is supposed to love you and support you in anything.
Shelby Johnson experienced such thing, even though she had a history of being underweight. When she finally reached a healthy weight of 120lbs, she felt like it was a victory for her. Unfortunately, her boyfriend did not feel the same.
After her boyfriend bizarrely criticized her, saying her belly is sticking out more than his, she decided to share his texts on Twitter. Apparently, having a “beer gut” is perfectly acceptable for men, but not for women.
She wrote on her Twitter that she wasn’t sure if she is overreacting by feeling hurt by the words of her boyfriend, and she couldn’t comprehend how someone who claims to love her could say things like that.
Shelby’s tweet went viral quickly, and people supported and adviced her to “dump his ass”.
