One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Good for her!
Model Kate Upton was recently berated by a thinspo website for being "thick" and "vulgar".
But that's not all!
She was also called a "little piggy", a "squishy brick" and said to be "confidently lumbering up a runway like there’s a buffet at the end of it".
"I'm not going to starve just to be thin. I want to enjoy life and I can't if I'm not eating and miserable."
Kate’s rep also said the comments are "absurd" before adding "Kate is gorgeous and very healthy."
