"I said something yesterday on the demonstrate that unmistakably struck a nerve", she disclosed to her gathering of people, "and I believe it's a discussion we need". The truth is, I loathe it.

Kang said she's "in your face" when it comes to helping people stay fit.

"You should parlay the shaming thing into a professional business", Kelly told King. Because some of us want to be shamed! "I said to my stepfather, "If you see me go into that kitchen one more time, you say 'Where you goin", fat (expletive)?' And it worked!"

Kelly would later be the subject of the term at the hands of school bullies herself, and says she took drastic measures to reduce her size, including diet pills, obsessive exercise, and reducing her calorie intake to just 500 per day.

"Those comments can cut deep, trust me, I know". "We should be fostering a healthy culture that celebrates all women of all sizes", McCain wrote alongside an article about the comments. "When you say something like, 'At times, fat-disgracing is great, ' it truly harms me".

My entire family is or has been overweight or obese: My nana, my mom, my sister, and my brother. Kelly also shared a memory of a neighbor calling her mother "fat".
