"Whatever your issue is, everybody's insecure, if she's feeling chubby that day, if she feels that way about her own body, she should be able to say I feel fat, I feel bloated", she said.
"Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale ignited some online backlash after she criticized herself for looking "fat" in a throwback photo, and the women of "The View" were split on the controversy on Monday. "I love you daddy", she wrote.
"Fat? That's what you take away from this lovely photo of you and your dad?"
What do YOU think of Lucy calling herself fat in front of all her young fans?? "Probably not a great thing to say that this weight was 'fat, ' considering how many young girls are going to read that and get upset about their bodies", wrote another. You may be thinner now but were never "fat".
"You have to understand that we are talking about a person that has struggled with self love and eating disorders in the past". "You know what it's like, there you are with somebody, let's say they're like you [motioning to Jedediah Bila]".
Other fans came to Lucy's defence, telling people to not be so quick to pass judgement on Lucy's remarks, as she has the right to feel however she wants about her body, and people don't know what she has been through. Instead of focusing on size, we should always be focusing on being healthy and making sure we feel strong and happy with ourselves. Being overweight or fat isn't a bad thing; it's just a state of your body.
Of course, Lucy Hale is human, and we can't discredit her insecurities-we all have them.
