Body shaming seems to be the order of the day on social media and pubic figures are the most targeted.
Milly Chebby, Lynda Nyangweso, Neomi Nganga, Yummy Mummy and Sandra Dacha aka Siprosa are among the many who’ve been body shammed and they campaign for body positivity.
KBC presenter Regina Ray Manyara has revealed that she was recently body shammed by a woman.
She also narrated how she couldn’t secure a job in the media because they were hiring slim women only.
‘SOME LADY CALLED ME FAT….YES
ANYWAY OTHER THAN IT MAKING ME QUESTION LIKE WHO ASKED FOR YOUR OPINION?
I WENT BACK TO YEARS, WHILE I WAS STARTING MY CAREER WHERE FOR ONE TO ANCHOR/BECOME A TV PRESENTER REQUIRED ONE TO BE SLIM FIT!( PERCEPTION SILENT CLAUSES) I WAS LEFT OUT OF THE QUALIFYING LIST OFTEN ON ACCOUNT OF BODY SIZE…BUT HERE I AM TODAY-DOUBLING AS A REPORTER AND NEWSCASTER. LONG STORY SHORT…IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MY WEIGHT OR ANYONE’S ( SEEK THEM OUT PERSONALLY ONLY IF YOU HAVE A REMEDY!)
BESIDES, IF MY SIZE DOESN’T BOTHER ME, WHY SHOULD IT BOTHER YOU?
*GO FIND WHO HURT YOU*
#BODYSHAMMING IS REAL!’ SHE POSTED.

Ray’s followers encouraged her to be comfortable in her own body and ignore critics.
Claire Wambui I once went through the same aki. I had depression after loosing my unborn baby. But I soldiered on coz I am the only one who knows what I am/was going through. But I love our chubby bodies.
Winnie Wilfred Why do people like body-shaming others, people should be thinned by theirs, must they comment just to make you feel bad.. you’re beautiful and wonderful made, and never let anyone underline the one anyone, bring you down…let those fools be, and they have the temerity to question you about you own body, people should grow up.
