If the conversation about #Adele’s weight loss is frustrating, upsetting or outright triggering to your ED/BDD, it’s okay to step away from social media today.
The toxic fat shaming and misogyny in the #adele tag is disgusting. Adele was sexy, and talented, and stylish years ago so I don't know why so many of you are acting like she's suddenly become all of those things only now simply because her weight has changed. pic.twitter.com/SPIoEmqoYd— j u s t i n e ð±ð¦ (@benbetwnworlds) May 6, 2020
