Ashley Graham is on fire!
Unfortunately, the Nebraska-native has her fair share of haters.
As we reported, former SI model Cheryl Tiegs criticized the magazine for “glamorizing” Graham’s body, which she considers to be unhealthy.
Recently, Ashley talked to E! News where she revealed that she doesn’t give two s*ts about Tiegs’ opinion!
She said :
“Cheryl Tiegs may have said what she said and it may have hurt a lot of people’s feelings├óΓé¼┬ª but my skin is so thick. I kind of rolled my eyes, I was like, ‘Oh whatever, another one of these ladies.”‘
You go, girl!
In fact, Cheryl has no right to label Ashley’s body as unhealthy.
“There are too many people thinking they can look at a girl my size and say that we are unhealthy. You can’t, only my doctor can!”
Tiegs later clarified her statement, but the plus-size model does NOT consider this an apology!
“I’ve never personally heard from her. She said her comment about me, then never heard a follow up. People are saying she apologized. But I never heard one.”
But what will happen if she actually meets Cheryl in person?
“You never know, and I will go up to her and say hello, and all the SI girls, I’ve always looked up to them. They are classic, amazing, beautiful women and it’s a shame that we have to bring other people down, but that’s why I’m here. I’ve got to bring other women up.”
Ashley Graham is a true role model for women!
