Most people would look at model Iskra Lawrence’s body in envy. One vitriolic Internet commenter, however, felt differently. Instead of taking it to heart, Lawrence fired back the best way she knows how—with food.
Last week, Lawrence shared a screengrab of a comment that someone left on one of her Instagram photos. It was less than kind about her appearance.
The NHS is the U.K.’s National Health Service (and crisps are potato chips, for our American readers). But the language of fat-shaming is, sadly, universal. And after receiving this comment, Lawrence posted a photo with all the crisps that she supposedly consumes all the time.
✨😝I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself…This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT. Thanks for the inspirational words on a recent pic @zseanzbrown 👇🏼 “Fat cow. It’s only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.” Opinions are like arseholes – everyone’s got one🙌 thanks to the dream team for making this happen at work today 📸 by @ricktphoto @mandywinrow @nickigillonstylist

To make sure she really drove the point home, Lawrence also posted a slo-mo video of her eating a bag of crisps.
✨😝Had to make a #slow-mo too😂…This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT. Thanks for the inspirational words on a recent pic @zseanzbrown 👇🏼 “Fat cow. It’s only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.” Ps I do not condone binge eating. I eat whatever I want in moderation. I will eat crisps but I’ll also make healthy home cooked meals and workout regularly. The message is who gives a F what anyone else thinks of you. YOU are the only one who decides yourself worth✨ And sorry I’m usually not rude or give anyone the finger but these online trolls smdh 😂😂😂 #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful

This isn’t the first time Lawrence has posted a video of herself shamelessly indulging. She’s eaten a brownie in a bikini, chocolate in her bra and underwear, a mince pie while also in her underwear. Oh, and here she is again with another mince pie.
Iskra Lawrence is all of us when we’re home alone in our kitchens. She’s just bold enough to share it.
