This Plus-Size Model Responded To Trolls Who Tried To Body-Shame Her Aaliyah Costume
“I think you look amazing! Aaliyah would approve.”
Alicia Mitchell is a plus-size model, designer and former beauty queen from Newark, New Jersey. Recently, an old photo of her dressed as Aaliyah for a costume party was shared online.
The 34-year-old explained how a post on Facebook sparked a wave of abuse directed at her for being a plus-size woman.
And so Alicia responded to the trolls on Twitter and let them know: “yes I’m Big but I work with what I got.”
She also wanted people to know that health and well-being is more than skin deep.
Mitchell said: “I am all about health and wellness, I’m a healthy big girl, I love to work out, I love to eat healthy, but sometimes I want a celery stick, and sometimes I want an Oreo cookie and all of that is okay as long as you have a balance and I had to learn that. You can enjoy your life but everything in moderation.”
