3) The Media Body-shamed Her!
It is facile to pass an opinion on something or somebody; people don't care enough to think through the consequences that their baseless opinion might have on somebody.

However, she isn't somebody to stay quiet on a matter like such. She spoke for herself as well as all other people who have had the similar issues and slammed the haters with an Instagram post that read,
"This physical body is NOT an indication of health-including physical and mental health. To call me lazy is an insult. To say I was healthier when I was more lean is ignorant. To define me by my body demonstrates the inadequacy of our society. I'm not saying these things just for the judgment directed at me personally. I'm saying them for every woman who has ever questioned her self-worth because of her physical being. We are not defined by our appearance. When we think about the people we love, we think about their character, their humour, their intelligence, their wit, their generosity, their kindness and humility.... we don't define our friends and family solely on their appearance. So please inform me why it's okay to belittle those we don't even know based only on what is seen on the outside?"
She also took it to Instagram addressing how she was conscious for losing weight,
4) A Desire Of Excelling In The Business World:
