Actress Phuti Khomo slams trolls telling her not to wear a crop top

South African actress Phuti Khomo has hit back at trolls for body shaming her after she shared a picture of herself wearing a crop top. A visibly annoyed Phuti took to her Instagram to make it clear that the flood of “solutions” on how to deal with “problematic” features on her body were definitely not welcome. Phuti was not impressed by their comments that she shouldn't wear a crop top because of how her stomach apparently looks. “So like, I've been receiving a lot of DMs and I think I just wanna talk about these DMs. I'm not sure but does it look like I have a stomach problem? I don't think so. I don't believe so,” Phuti asked before adding, “I have people in my DMs saying I have problems and maybe I shouldn't wear something like a crop top ...

Wema Sepetu proves body positivity is a crab in the bucket mentality

Tanzanian actress and model, Wema Sepetu is being shamed for actually gett8ing to the right size for a woman her height and age. Let that sink in for a minute. Her haters have been taking to her social media account to leave negative remarks about the fact that she has lost weight and is now the right BMI (body mass index) for her height. This is a rather interesting thing to note because it gives credence to the argument that body positivity as a movement isn’t for every woman but rather for women who are overweight and do not want to be held accountable nor reminded that it is actually immensely irresponsible to allow yourself to get to an unhealthy weight. Wema Sepetu is the latest instalment of this narrative as we have seen it repeated in the lives of Adelle, the UK singer a...
