This is a 22 year old model named Liz (who btw is a size XS) - was caught on camera telling off a photographer who told her to lose weight! The moment was caught on camera because the model's friend started filming during a photoshoot! The photographer told her she needs to eat less so that she can lose weight! WTFFFFFF Dude she's thin and she wears an XS. How much thinner do you want her to be!?
Well the model wasn't having it and she told him...
“You are very lucky that I am secure in my body, and that I love myself, but if there was another model who was standing here and was insecure about her body, that one comment that you made could literally make her go insane,”
“She would literally stop eating, weighing her food, her hair would fall out. Her organs can die. She can die, literally, because of that one comment that you made. You should watch how you talk to people,” she firmly stated.
“I shouldn’t lose anything, because I’m already very skinny, and even if I wasn’t, you’re not the one to tell me what to do with my body,”
Thankfully after the photoshoot, the brand she was shooting for apologized and asked her to come back with a different photographer and THAT photographer who commented on her weight was fired.
She did say that she does think that the photographer understood what she was saying
“People can make mistakes and learn from them. I really tried to educate him on the consequences of his words. I think he understood.”
Sadly she said that those comments really hit her hard and she doesn't want to model for another brand again!
