17. Followed by thin-shaming a pregnant woman.

Think that because they’re gossip magazines they don’t have any kind of social responsibility? Think again. They didn’t just body-shame a pregnant woman; they dangerously diagnosed her with an eating disorder and then slapped the label on the cover of a best-selling magazine.
