Instagram Model Digitally Alters Her Looks to Make a Point About Body-Shaming

It seems that for every kind-hearted, innocent soul browsing the internet, there's a malevolent troll looking to wreak havoc for everyone else. Why do they do it? There are surely a plethora of reasons, which range from a desire for attention to a sense of lowered inhibition that accompanies the web's relative anonymity. Often, women on the internet become troll's favorite targets, having their intelligence, bodies, and opinions criticized and belittled for no reason.

To make a point about how trolls treat others online, body-positive Instagram model Chessie King partnered with Cybersmile, an anti-cyberbullying organization, to produce a new video:

In the video, King is happy with her body, but trolls swoop in with lots of advice on how she might improve it. With the help of photoshop, she continues to post pictures of herself taking the trolls advice. The results are equal parts horrifying and illuminating. It becomes clear the trolls have no actual interest in what King's body looks like—they simply want to make her feel bad and ugly.

Chessie's Instagram is centered around body positivity.

She encourages realistic body types and encourages people to distance themselves from trends and ideals that don't make them happy.

King captioned the video by saying:

If we changed our body for every troll, listened to every cyber bully, we would be monsters. Whether you have 23 followers or 3 million, NO ONE should have to deal with regular hate online.

Some jobs will just give you night terrors forever!

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

Hold my beer!

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.

Warning: This is adult subject matter. Escorting is an arduous job. And it is a job. Maybe not one we'd all love to do but it's work none the less, especially when you have to mess with someone you may not find the most "aesthetically appealing." The workers in the trade have an endless well of stories to tell us. And you know we're dying to hear. Our questions on this topic are bottomless.
