YouTuber Meredith Foster Comes Clean After Being Accused of Eating Disorder
Meredith Foster has always has a skinny frame, but she recently started working out in order to tone up her body. The YouTube star is ripped and while some fans think her health kick is #goals, others are concerned that something deeper is happening.
If you scroll through the 21-year-old’s Instagram page, you’ll see TONS of comments that say she’s gotten too skinny lately.
“I’m really worried about u, you look very unhealthy,” one person wrote underneath a picture of her in a bikini.
A separate fan said, “Seeing your ribs and bones poking it out does not look good it looks unhealthy.”
Meredith’s weight-loss has also sparked concerns that she is secretly battling an eating disorder. The comments have gotten so overwhelming lately that the YouTuber simply couldn’t ignore them any longer.
“So, I wanted to address something that’s been talked about all over my YouTube video comments and my Instagram comments, and that is my weight, how I look, my appearance,” she explained in a recent vlog. “I have been seeing so much negativity and so many awful things.”
She continues, “A lot of people in the comments say I look ‘sickly,’ which is not okay to say to anybody, and that the purple [under my eyes] is scary, or whatever, and that’s a sign that I’m not healthy. I would like to point out the fact that I’ve had these purple under-eye bags since I was born. […] It’s hereditary. Both my parents have under-eye bags. I am very pale. My skin is very transparent. You can see my veins, so the skin under my eyes is very thin. You can see all the blood vessels. I’ve been insecure about this and struggled with this for so long.”
But even after saying all that and explaining that she’s “150 percent confident and content with [herself, her] inner being,” fans are still not satisfied. We’re sure Mere thought her video would ease viewers’ minds, it actually did the opposite. Many people are actually now MORE concerned because they say she avoided the topic of having an eating disorder completely.
While showing concern for someone is great, it’s important to remember that skinny-shaming is never okay. No one knows Meredith personally, and therefore cannot possibly make such serious accusations.
These 15 ladies were told they’re too skinny for fame:
Although Kendall is a high-fashion model, where thin frames are pretty much celebrated at every turn, Kendall felt the need to explain that, even though she has tried to put on weight, her body isn't made that way and won't keep it on.
