10 YouTube Stars Who Recreated Zoe Sugg’s ~Controversial~ Underwear Pic
Zoe Sugg is one of the most popular YouTubers of all time, so unfortunately she’s used to dealing with tons of hate and criticism daily. But when the 25-year-old beauty guru posted an innocent picture of herself wearing a big t-shirt and underwear to bed on Snapchat, she realized just how sexist and unfair the world actually is.
“YouTube star Zoella ditches wholesome image with bedtime Snapchat… of her in her knickers,” The Sun wrote about the photo. “@Zoella posted a VERY revealing selife of herself in bed wearing just her underwear,” said The Daily Mail. While celebs like Justin Bieber and Nick Jonas can flaunt their undies until they’re blue in the face, it’s somehow not okay for women to…gasp…show their legs! Ugh. The British beauty was briefly angry about the double standards, but used the criticism as an opportunity to promote body confidence instead.
“I hope one day we will live in a world where promoting self love & body confidence won’t be sexualised or shamed,” she wrote on Twitter.
But even though Zoe chose to ignore the headlines as much as she could, her fellow YouTubers refused to let the tabloids get away with their antics and trended #WeStandWithZoe almost immediately. Additionally, some of them even recreated the ~controversial~ photo to put a stop to the sexism once and for all.
