Scheana Marie and Kaitlyn Bristowe are speaking out about body shamers.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star joined former “Bachelorette” Bristowe on her podcast “Off The Vine” on Thursday, and opened up about Instagram trolls who claim the pair are “too skinny.”
“The other night, I was in Vegas and I posted a photo and I’m naturally a petite person… I eat a lot. I’ve already had a couple of meals today. I can’t wait for my next one. But my waist, especially the angle, was really tiny,” Scheana shared. “It was like 900 comments like ‘anorexic’ or ‘too skinny.’ When did that become OK?”
She added, “It’s not OK to say someone is too fat but it’s OK to say someone is too skinny? It’s okay to make fun of them and assume I have an eating disorder, which I struggled with in college and I don’t anymore.”
Bristowe has had similar experiences. “It’s unbelievable to me that someone can go on someone’s photo and comment on their weight,” she added. “It’s not healthy for anyone. I get comments all the time about my weight just because I’m really tiny.”
Bristowe said the comments turned even uglier when she started publicly dating “The Bachelor” alum Jason Tartick, shortly after announcing her split from ex-fiance Shawn Booth.
“I just got out of a relationship and in people’s minds, I’ve moved on quickly but nobody really knows what the story was with the relationship for the last year and I’m getting hated on right now for being happy,” Bristowe explained. “You’re a happy b**ch too soon.”
