Victoria Beckham Accused Of Using ‘Stick Thin’ Model & Promoting Eating Disorders — See Tweets

Fans are furious with designer Victoria Beckham about her new sunglasses campaign which features a model they call ‘anorexic-looking’! See the outraged tweets!

Victoria Beckham, 43, just came under a barrage of criticism from enraged fans who were outraged about a new sunglass campaign that used a model they described as “unhealthily skinny and gaunt.” While promoting her new eyewear collection, the former Spice Girl took to Twitter to share a photo of a model rocking some vintage frames. “Back to work! Start the year with new frames from the Spring Summer 2018 #VBEyewear collection inspired by 1970s retro classics and updated for a feathery-light, fresh and modern look,” she captioned the pictures. While sunglasses are one of those things that actually can be one-size-fits-all, Twitter was NOT happy by the casting choice for the campaign. People bashed Victoria for promoting eating disorders due to the model’s thin frame.

The woman in the campaign could be perfectly healthy and not be suffering from any sort of eating disorder, so accusing a model for what might very well be her natural size is also not a good look. But promoting highly unrealistic standards for what women’s bodies should look like is definitely a discussion that needs to be had — and tweeters are ready to call out those responsible. “Sorry to say victoria. You should know better in employing models that look unhealthy that skinny,” a Twitter user named Angela Carter-Begbie wrote. “Whether this model is naturally thin or not, you have chosen her. That is irresponsible and unworthy of so prominent a designer. Public feeling is not with you on this,” Twitter user Tony Balmforth noted.

Promoting an eyewear line could have been a great opportunity to use various models of all body types, so we can see where the frustration is coming from, especially considering Victoria said in 2011, “Models are thin. But I do take my position seriously and I wouldn’t want to use very skinny girls.” See some of the outraged responses to Victoria’s choice in model below:
