There has been a recent phenomenon where a young model posing for a protein ad has been the subject of vile online abuse. If you recently followed the media in the UK you will have heard of the “Are you Beach Body Ready” advert on billboards around the London Underground.
Feminists, body image campaigners and online bloggers all blasted the campaign especially the company “Protein World” and the model in it. Who is the model who faced such backlash because of her appearance?
The genetically-blessed Australian Model, in the advert, is 24-year-old Renee Somerfield. Renee, who is a strict vegan, has responded to the ‘contradictory’ drama with a very level-headed argument citing the irony of people getting angry about body shaming, whilst body shaming her. What do you think?
