Women Bullied for Her Gym Outfits – But Watch the Woman on the Right

The average American is considered to be obese, with over twothirds of adults and nearly onethird of children and adolescents being overweight or obese. This is due to multiple factors such as the fast food culture, lack of physical activity, and unhealthy dietary habits. Obesity has been linked to numerous health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, making it a major public health concern. 

While it may be a fact that lots of people are overweight, is it okay for people who aren’t overweight to point it out to those who are? Probably not–especially if they didn’t ask for the opinion. Outside the context of a medical or fitness consultation, “body shaming,” which means making fun of people for their bodies, is just another type of bullying.

And while most of us know body shaming is harmful to the recipient, are we willing to speak up about it? “What Would You Do” is a video series that tries to find out the answer. In the clip below, three actors are working out in the gym. Initially, the two actors start fat-shaming and skinny shaming, and the crew outside waits for a reaction.

As soon as an individual speaks up, they go inside with the cameras. After that, they ask the motive behind their words of support. The approach seems like a fascinating social experiment. Seriously, what would you do? Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
