In case you were feeling good about the general state of the universe right now, here's a bit of news to knock you right down. A pro-anorexia website has slammed stunning model Kate Upton for her weight -- claiming that she is 30 pounds too heavy for a bikini she wore on a recent runway. The diatribe was so scathing that it caught the attention of the New York Daily News.
The site, SkinnyGossip, calls Upton a "cow," sarcastically commending her for her "bravery" in appearing on the runway half-naked. "Let's not pretend this is fashion. She looks thick, vulgar, almost pornographic - and she is a solid 30 lbs too heavy for this outfit," reads the shocking site.
Pro-anorexia websites have been a worrisome part of online culture for over a decade, but as they grow increasingly "mainstream," it's important for the media to acknowledge how problematic they are -- and to counteract them with positive messages for young women.
