An ad for Gillette’s Venus razor featuring a plus-size model is sparking outrage.
This is 33-year-old Anna O'Brien. Anna is an Instagram model with a huge following on many social media platforms. Fans love her for accepting her body as it is, loving herself, and loving life. The Gillette ad, posted on their Instagram page, features this photo of Anna frolicking in the ocean, with the inspiring message: “Go out there and slay the day.”
In response to body-shamers on social media, the Instagram star spoke out to "Good Morning America." "For a lot of people, all they can see is fat. They don’t see the joy. They don’t see the happiness," O'Brien said.
