“I’m American so you don’t have to worry about my fat a**” – Tess Holliday fires Back at Piers Morgan

Tess Holliday has responded to Piers Morgan‘s recent post accusing Cosmopolitan UK of promoting obesity in the United Kingdom.

Taking to Twitter, Holliday stated: “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”.

Piers Morgan took to social media on Thursday to call out Cosmopolitan UK for the cover its October issue. According to Morgan, the cover which features plus-size model Tess Holliday was a misguided move which would worsen UK’s current struggle with combating obesity.

He shared via Instagram: “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.”

    I don’t agree with fat shaming but Piers has made a valid point. We raised alarm when we saw that models were getting too thin. Why can’t we do the same when the individual is really big. We need to be real. There are just too many health complications that arise from being obese. Obesity should not be celebrated.

      You have said it all! At least we know it’s dangerous; why can’t she accept the truth?

    Whoever calls this beautiful is either straight up lying or is genuinely delusional from the modern day political correctness extremities. This is wrong on so many levels and cosmopolitan is exploring this girl for shock factor just to generate sales. Radarada

    Ashley Graham is an example of a good healthy ‘plus size’. This lady up there is at risk.
