#RockTheCrop: Women Fire Back After Blatant Fat Shaming In Oprah Mag


People are not happy with O, The Oprah Magazine right now.

In a recent issue, the magazine's creative director, Adam Glassman, answered a question about wearing crop tops by insisting only those with flat bellies should attempt to rock the trend.

The body-shaming answer prompted immediate backlash on social media, with many people expressing disappointment in the women's magazine's choice to include Glassman's ill-conceived response.

But on the other hand, the positive movement the comment spawned is both moving and inspirational.

Fashion blogger Sarah Conley took to her website, Style IT, to pen a reply to the fat-shaming advice.

Conley wrote, “I was shocked to see this kind of body-shaming language from any magazine.”

She asked her followers to take pictures of themselves wearing crop tops and post the photos to social media, along with #RockTheCrop.

Conley's campaign quickly gained traction across several social media platforms.

People of all sizes and shapes are now participating…

...and it's exactly what Conley hoped for.

Even Tess Holliday, the plus-sized model behind #EffYourBeautyStandards, joined the movement.

The magazine has yet to comment on its hurtful faux pas…

...but it certainly learned its lesson.

People will not be silenced and will not be shamed.

Just continue to #RockTheCrop!
