Whitney Thore has become one of the hottest reality TV stars, thanks to a new reality show, My Big Fat Fabulous Life, her charming candor, and her No Body Shame (BS) campaign. Opening up about issues ranging from PCOS to diabetes to dating to dieting, Whitney has earned wows from fans of all ages.
But now, as Thore discussed with Dr. Mehmet Oz, the reality TV star is facing claims that she is promoting obesity. In addition to fat-shaming, they argue that the show encourages a lifestyle that is unhealthy.
However, as Whitney has revealed, she struggles with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). Rather than promoting obesity, what Thore is encouraging is that people of all sizes stop fat-shaming and that they embrace their shapes.
