Obese, naked and proud woman causes outrage with strange body positivity message

This Morning viewers were outraged today by an "obese, naked and proud" woman with a strange body positivity message.

Jo Frost was part of a trio of big, brave and beautiful ladies revealing why they bared all in a naked photoshoot.

Alongside Kat Henry and Sophie Mayanne on the This Morning sofa, Jo revealed that she got nude to express how comfortable she was with her body.

When asked about the different reception between being underweight and overweight, she claimed that skinny people get a "lot more empathy".

This was met with fierce criticism from outraged viewers who argued underweight people suffer just as badly and need just as much body positivity,


On whether obese women had it worse, Jo said: "I would say so. I do live videos and we talk about body positivity to quite a large audience on a regular basis, no matter what size you are.

"I do feel the attitude to someone classed as underweight is different. We see underweight people every single day in the media. There may be a few jibes, you’re skinny, you’re, this you’re that.

"But i do feel there’s a lot more empathy to people with an eating disorder when they’re underweight compared to overweight."


Eamonn Holmes asked if the they would choose to be slimmer if they could wave a magic wand, but all three said they would stay at their current weight or only drop two dress sizes.

Speaking about getting nude on camera, Jo added: "I don’t see why it’s not normal. Whether it’s right or wrong people are obese.

"Yes we can do something about it but it’s expressing how you’re comfortable with who you are right now. We should feel positive about ourselves in the here and now."

Furious This Morning viewers took to Twitter to hit back at Jo’s opinions.

One viewer said: "Absolute c***!! I have had rude comments for being under weight all my life "you need to eat love" …"anorexic"…totally offensive comments from complete strangers! We get body shamed just as much and it hurts just as much"

Another added: "Rubbish, under weight people get a lot of abuse, or snide comments but “curvy” people, especially women, are called “real women”"

A third agreed: "No I disagree!! Im naturally thin and I get called skinny, disgusting and get told I need to eat more, it goes both ways, I need some body positivity!!"
