The latest edition of Cosmopolitan UK has 33-year-old plus-size model, Tess Holliday as the cover girl.
The cover which aims to promote body positivity sees Tess talk about her battling overweight and postpartum depression which lasted from January 2017 to early 2018 long after the birth of her child in June 2016. She also opens up about being sexually assaulted when she was younger.
Tess posted the cover of the magazine herself, saying she was proud of the way it looked and hoped it would change the attitude of young girls who might be ashamed of the way they look.
But guess who wasn’t having none of it? The Piers Morgan. According to the very opinionated media personality, the cover is just as dangerous as celebrating underweight models.
As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo.
Apparently we’re supposed to view it as a ‘huge step forward for body positivity.’ What a load of old baloney.
This cover is just as dangerous & misguided as celebrating size zero models.

Piers got a lot of support but some people called him out for fat-shaming Jess.
Jess replied saying:
To everyone saying I’m a burden to the British health care system, I’m american so you don’t have to worry about my fat ass. Worry about what horrible people you are by whining about how me being on the cover of a glossy magazine impacts your small minded life.
