Kate Moss' sister faces backlash for saying she could 'never be skinny'
While it's well-known that certain celebrities tend to be somewhat tone-deaf when it comes to their own words, you'd think that with it being 2018, and us supposedly being more "woke" than ever that people would refrain from making divisive comments; especially when they're of the racist, sexist, or body-shaming variety.
Case in point: model Lottie Moss - sister of Kate - has found herself under fire for claiming she "could never be skinny" because she "loves garlic bread". Now, not only has Lottie won the genetic lottery, á la her supermodel sister, but she's also not a plus-sized model. In fact, the 20-year-old is precisely what many would call "skinny".
Kate Moss' little sister has angered the internet after taking to Twitter to post that she could "never be skinny" because she "loves garlic bread so much".
People were understandably perplexed by the young model's comments as she is clearly a slim woman. "Like you are not skinny", one person indignantly replied, while another simply stated, "Do be real".
But it's not just the public that's concerned about Lottie Moss's statement. Speaking to the Independent, Harley Street nutritionist, Rhiannon Lambert, denounced the model's comments as "awful". "She’s insinuating if you eat bread you can’t be slim and must be heavier. It’s ridiculous plus she’s encouraging body dysmorphia," Lambert asserted.
"Carbohydrates are essential for human life but this doesn’t mean if you are not highly active you don’t need any at all. Our brains can only process glucose for fuel efficiently and lots of studies conducted at respected universities and research centres have shown resistant starch (found in carbs) helps you eat less, burn more calories, feel more energised and less stressed, and lower cholesterol."
Lottie Moss's comments sound eerily familiar to a now-infamous statement made by her older sister, Kate, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." The supermodel was heavily criticised for making such an assertion, with people believing that her comments would strike a chord in impressionable young women by making eating disorders seem "romantic".
This is not the first time that Lottie has faced criticism in recent weeks. The 20-year-old spent the New Year partying in the Bahamas with a group of friends. However, their time on the island sparked outrage amongst locals who complained that their celebrations quickly turned raucous. Asserting that the youngsters playing loud music and engaged in debauched behaviour including nudity.
One resident took to the internet to write, "I have no problem with getting a little crazy and having fun. I do, however, have a problem with getting downright lewd on a family island, forcing local folks to go home early. I also have a problem with leaving the establishment you partied at covered with garbage and the beach covered with heaps of waste."
I guess hedonism runs in the family, then.
