NIGERIA – Plus sized Nollywood actress, Eniola Badmus is not unnerved about the despicable comments made by trolls who are fat-shaming her body size.
The actress took to her Instagram page earlier today to remind critics of her lack of concern regarding their hurtful opinions.
According to her, she’s grown thick skin and can accommodate intimidating thoughts.
“Being called “fat” doesn’t bother me because it’s a simple fact. Yeah, I am fat. I have body fat. And what about it?
Sometime in 2018, she pointed out in an interview with Vanguard News that there is more regard for plus-sized women in other parts of the world.
The actress considers the problem of getting fat-shamed is a Nigerian problem.
“Why is this being big an issue to people?
“It is only in Nigeria that big sizes are not appreciated, this is because most fat women are hiding under their shadows, they fail to realized the beauty in them, they lay low so as not to be mocked.
“I may or may not want to lose weight but everyone wants to be healthy. Must everyone be slim? It has never affected my career in any way.
“This is what has been working for me. It is not easy to be big and famous. I’m proud of myself and how far I have come.”
