Tash Oakley Hits Back at The Daily Mail After Body-Shaming Profile

Not exactly known for journalistic integrity, the Daily Mail has sunk to a new low with a recent profile on bikini blogger Tash Oakley.

The article targeted the 25-year-old blogger with some good old fashioned body-shaming, calling out her use of Instagram filters for masking her “cellulite thighs”.

The Daily Mail writer used some photos of Oakley at the beach as evidence in the ‘expose’, unearthing the fact that Oakely, like pretty much everyone else in the world with an Instagram account, has used “filters and clever posting” to make herself look better.

Now Oakley has hit back, calling out the publication for their “hurtful and insensitive words.”

Reposting from a @gratitude_project, who had posted in support of Oakley, the bikini blogger wrote, “I don’t usually use my social media to personally call people out but I would like to make [writer] Danielle Gusmaroli answerable.”

“She is now in my mind an exact representation of what is wrong in the world and what a woman should never aspire to be.”

“The fact that woman made it her career to put others down sickens me and any other woman who has ever commented something bad on another woman’s photo, put someone down for there physical appearance or bullied someone for something natural, should be ashamed of themselves.”

“I for one love my body, I work hard, I live a healthy lifestyle and proud of what I see in these photos. All women should feel this way and should feel free and happy within their own lives, not as if they constantly have to be living up to other people’s standards or society’s idea of ‘beauty.”

Here, here.

 

Firstly I just want to personally say thank you to this grounded and amazing woman, @gratitude_project, for making my morning this morning with your kind and supportive words. Secondly, you guys know I don’t usually use my social media to personally call people out but I would like to make Danielle Gusmaroli answerable for her hurtful and insensitive words. Danielle who works for @dailymailau decided to write an entire article based on finding horrible paparazzi photos of me with cellulite and putting me down about my figure. She is now in my mind an exact representation of what is wrong in the world and what a woman should never aspire to be. @gratitude_project couldn’t have said it better “can’t we support each other, celebrate each other and come from love?”. The fact that woman made it her career to put others down sickens me and any other woman who has ever commented something bad on another woman’s photo, put someone down for there physical appearance or bullied someone for something natural, should be ashamed of themselves. I for one love my body, I work hard, I live a healthy lifestyle and proud of what I see in these photos. All women should feel this way and should feel free and happy within their own lives, not as if they constantly have to be living up to other people’s standards or society’s idea of “beauty”. All of my most “beautiful” memories have been nothing to do with physical appearance, they have been with my family, my best friends, my boyfriend, laughing, working hard or even crying. Danielle, this is a shameful day for you and I hope you and others can realize that your contribution to this world is very uninspiring and negative. Oh, and thank you for also choosing to bully my best friend @devinbrugman in the end, as if I was enough for you.
