In tonight’s episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney Way Thore is brought to tears at gay pride.
In an exclusive clip provided to Life & Style, the plus-size beauty is conducting interviews for a radio show segment when she approached an attendee in the crowd, who unexpectedly body shamed her.
After denying her request for questions, the man rudely told Whitney, “It’s a good thing you’re in radio, cause yeah, nobody would want to see your big a– on TV.”
Shocked by the man’s cruel words, Whitney held back her tears.
“Just when I’m feeling really good about myself, this s–t happens,” she said. “It never fails.”
Whitney, who has been very open about her 200-pound weight gain, launched the No Body Shame campaign to inspire men and women to live their lives free of shame.
“Most of my adult life consisted of dramatic weight gain, a PCOS diagnosis, self-loathing & a non-stop desire to lose weight and be this girl again—until I realized how insane this was,” she said on Instagram. “I know because I’ve lived it, that thinness does not equal happiness and it does not equal physical or mental health.”
She continued, “The woman I am now can dance with reckless abandon. She can frolic in a bikini. She can demand love and respect that is not contingent on her dress size. The woman I am now can LIVE, knowing that I am completely deserving of every single wonderful thing this world has to offer.”
This season of My Big Fat Fabulous Life also follows Whitney’s journey with a surprise pregnancy.
However, she posted a cryptic message on social media following the reveal on the reality series.
“Hey guys, I just want to say thank you for all of the congratulations and well wishes and everything that I got tonight, it was really nice,” Whitney said in the clip. “I wish that I could answer your questions and talk more about it, but I can’t until next week because I’m like under a contract so I can’t.”
