Anyone who’s ever been a victim of bodyshaming or cyberbullying can attest to the long-term side effects this has on self-confidence and mental health.
But health and fitness blogger Chessie King is breaking your perfect Instagram feed in the most unconventional way.
The London-based social media influencer also recently shared a quirky but informative video about cyberbullying on YouTube.
In the video, she addresses trolls who frequently flood her inbox with bodyshaming comments such as “She’s so fat” and “You have an ugly face.”
In response, Chessie cheekily Photoshops her pictures to fit the rude comments.
Writing in the Telegram, the 26-year-old got candid about growing up with insecurities and how she’s learnt to overcome them.
“I speak at schools about everything from acne to body confidence, to losing my hearing in one ear. It has taken me years to get to where I am now,” she writes.

I use my voice on here to support & empower people, I spread a message I believe needs to be shared. To be told my body is not the right body to talk about body confidence is pure body shaming. ???????????????????? - Every shape, every size, every height, every gender, every human has the right to celebrate their body & all the incredible things it does for us. - No one knows your story, your relationship with your body unless they’ve lived inside your body your whole lifetime. - My army of supporters & sisters who follow me will know that my body & I have been through so much together. I will never stop trying to help you all, I have never & will never ever use my Instagram negatively, to put people down. I will never ever be silenced ??
