Chessie King, a fitness model and body-positive advocate, teamed up with Cybersmile to work towards ending cyberbullying by photoshopping her body.
Global – Chessie King has come to a space in her life where she accepts her body and loves the way she looks. She has overcome years of self-abuse and a teenage eating disorder. As a social media influencer, she always uses her platform to promote a positive body image. Despite her positive messages, she is brought continuously down by cyberbullies.
While she looks healthy and fit, trolls call her fat, tell her that her arms are too big, made fun of her eyebrows and said she needed lips.
She created a series of stories on her Instagram account and when a troll responded to took their criticism onboard and photoshopped her images to appease the troll.
Time after time as the cyberbullies attacked her; she continued to add their criticisms to her photoshopped body. In the end, she looked nothing like a human and more like a terrifying version of Jessica Rabbit.
She made the video with Cybersmile to show how harmful bullying can be back in 2018. Taking a stand, she hopes to prove that your perfect body is the one you love, not the one trolls dictate you have.
