How Ridiculous Is It That Kate Upton Is Being Called Fat?

Kate Upton has emerged as the dream girl of many men in 2012, thanks to her pretty face and rock hard body. Put simply, she’s a looker and a head turner, a beer ad-worthy beauty that seems attainable.

Ah, not so fast.

Jezebel pointed to a blog called SkinnyGossip. The site posted photos and scathing commentary of Upton working a runway, referring to her as “thick, vulgar and almost pornographic.” The site also suggests that she is 30 pounds too heavy for the bikini she is wearing. Um, in what universe?

The site also says the Sports Illustrated model is “confidently lumbering up a runway like there’s a buffet at the end of it.” It goes on to further criticize her for lack of body definition, lack of a waist and floppy boobs. Ouch. The implications are dangerous for the average girls out there. The site’s anonymous editor admits to preferring the skinny aesthetic and while that’s all well and good, it says something about the pressure on women to be thin when a seeming perfect 10 like Upton is ripped to shreds over her looks.

Upton is certainly not the first actress or model to be criticized as “fat” when she is anything but. Big screen beauty Mila Kunis, ‘Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence, teen queen Miley Cyrus and pop diva Lady Gaga have all been criticized for their weight in recent months.

These assessments of these celebs, who looks pretty thin and in shape to us, only serve to create more body issues among young girls.

But there is an upside to this. Teen girls are fighting back against the tabloids and other media outlets that are meant to cater to them, but falsify images by Photoshopping out imperfections. While Seventeen has pledged not to alter bodies or faces in their pages moving forward, its competition Teen Vogue is now facing pressure to do the same. Activitsts for SPARK, a group that is trying to cease the sexualization of girls in the media, planned to demonstrate outside of the publisher’s headquarters on July 11.
