ESPN Magazine's Body Issue hit the stands this morning, and the version of the cover with Prince Fielder on it had Twitter all atwitter.
There were plenty of people cracking on Fielder because of his weight, as Complex noted, but not everyone was joking. There were plenty of tweets flying in support of the athlete, praising his courage.
It's rare that the issue of beauty standards and fat shaming revolves around men, and this provided a new way to experience the phenomenon.
Though the shoe was on the other foot, so to speak, there was still a strong message and support of body acceptance, no matter whose body is in question.
And it sparked a revolution in what is being called #HuskyTwitter, leading men to celebrate their own Fielder-esque forms.
Thirty-something from Louisville, KY. Made of bourbon and awesome.
