INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A fitness blogger and fitness personality with millions of subscribers has released a powerful video about body image.
Cassey Ho, a certified fitness instructor who posts uplifting and inspirational messages about loving your body, admits to recently receiving hateful comments about her own body.
“Within the past few months though, it’s gotten really negative online. It’s actually been terrible,” Ho wrote in a recent blog post.
In response to those comments, Ho created a video that shows the negative comments people have sent, then shows Ho going through the process of photoshopping her own body. She slims her thighs and stomach, as well as changing her eye color and bust.
“In this video, you will experience what it feels like to be constantly bombarded with outrageous negativity,” writes Ho on her blog. “You will see what it looks like to have your self esteem stripped away.”
At the end of the post, Ho encourages followers to share the video to “battle body shaming.”
