TV Host Reminds Us All Why People Body Shame Others
Huffington Post - 8 months
There’s no shortage of stories that dismiss body shamers and celebrate the people who speak out against them. But those stories don’t always examine why people participate in body shaming in the first place.
Adamari López, an actress and Telemundo morning show host, was subjected to negative body comments in May after posting a swimsuit photo from a recent vacation with her partner Toni Costa. But instead of just speaking out against all the negativity, López took the opportunity to remind us that body shaming actually has little to do with the body in question.
“I think that when people criticize, they criticize themselves more,” she told the “Today” show. “I do not take it personal. Most likely, those individuals that criticize so brutally have a void in their lives, which reflects in trying to destroy or denigrate others, when in fact it is a reflection of what they have in their heart.”
