Telling it how it is! After someone shaded Tess Holiday in a negative tweet about her body image on March 13, the 33-year-old plus-size model made sure to give them a piece of her mind.
“@Tess_Holliday I found your new theme song. Now get to gym,” the rude follower wrote, as they attached Olivia Newton-John’s fitness track, “Physical.” So uncalled for! However, Tess wasn’t phased by it. “You know, folks like this don’t even make me mad anymore,” she replied in a quote tweet. “I just laugh at how f–king dumb they are. The fact that I’m typing this from the gym is the funniest part, but also HEALTH ISN’T A MANDATE AND WE DONT OWE YOU S–T. So f–k off.”
You know, folks like this don’t even make me mad anymore. I just laugh at how fucking dumb they are. The fact that I’m typing this from the gym is the funniest part, but also HEALTH ISNT A MANDATE AND WE DONT OWE YOU SHIT.
So fuck off. https://t.co/JOoAERAlYO

Afterward, someone else sent her a nasty tweet suggesting she should “get gastric bypass surgery and hire a personal trainer.” Once again, she had the perfect response. “I have a personal trainer, would you like to pay the most recent invoice she just sent me? Or … ?”
From there, a fan replied to the tweet in hopes of defending Tess. “Like you literally post workout videos all the time??” they wrote. Tess finally addressed the haters’ real issues. “They don’t actually follow me or care. They are just trolls who see fat bodies being happy and it bothers them because they are unhappy with themselves.” Mic drop!
This isn’t the first time she’s had to slam trolls on social media. During her second pregnancy in 2016, The Not So Subtle Art Of Being A Fat Girl: Loving the Skin You’re In author wrote a powerful message alongside a photo of herself showing off her then 32-week-old baby bump.

Having another baby has been a beautiful process & at times, frustrating. As I enter my 8th month, my body overall looks the same other than my belly & I'm okay with that. What I've had to be learn to be okay with (WHICH IS NOT COOL) is the fact that people still think it's okay to comment on my body: "you don't look pregnant", "you must be have quadruplets", "you are putting your baby at risk" & a slew of other uneducated statements that are very far from my reality 🙄. When "celebrities" are pregnant in the press, they look glamorous, toned & are eager to talk about how they are going to get the baby weight off. While I've done my best to look as put together as possible, that's not real life, & it's not for most women. I'm not the first plus size woman in the public eye to have a baby & share it with the world, & I certainly won't be the last. However I'm part of a small minority that's telling you it's okay to not have a perfect baby bump, or not show at all, to be plus size & have a healthy child, & most importantly to find a care provider that doesn't shame you about your size. It's also okay to tell someone to fuck off when they give you unsolicited advice about what's "best" for you & your baby. As women, we know what's best & that's our business.. No one else's. 👑 #effyourbeautystandards #theresnowrongwaytobeawoman #32weeks #babyhollidayontheway

You go, girl!
