Last December, celebrity personal trainer Jillian Michaels went against the “body positivity” crowd by stating the truth. She believes that this movement has helped to improve people’s lives yet she’s concerned about the health implications.
From People Magazine: “I think we’re politically correct to the point of endangering people. Yes, we want to be inclusive of everyone [and respect that] everyone comes in all different shapes and sizes. That nobody should ever be body shamed or fat shamed or excluded and that everyone is equally deserving and should feel equally valuable.
“Obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized. But we’ve become so politically correct that no one wants to say it.”
“I think the world has shifted to a place where that format and messaging is considered fat shaming. But it isn’t, and it’s not meant to be. Now we’ve gone too far in the opposite direction.”
Jillian recently said in an interview with BuzzFeed: “Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music? ‘Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.”
Liberals blasted Jillian for daring to speak the truth about the consequences of obesity. As reported by Page Six:
“The only reason we know who Jillian Michaels is, is because of a reality show where people used incredibly unhealthy practices in order to lose as much weight as possible,” wrote one tweeter, “not to become the most physically fit or to get the healthiest vitals – in a dangerously short time.”
Another follower called her statements “incredibly gross” while another made note of the “Good as Hell” singer’s energetic stage show.
“Lizzo spends hours every night singing and playing the flute during intensive dance cardio. Just admit that the only self worth you’ve found for yourself is in your thinness, Jillian, then go to therapy & do the work to love yourself.”
Jillian then posted to Instagram: “As I’ve stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy and equally deserving. I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity – heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few. I would never with these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies.”
How pathetic that stating the obvious truths about obesity is considered “incredibly gross.”
