Cassey Ho is a fitness trainer who provides Pilates and bootcamp workout videos on her YouTube channel. She is super fit and healthy yet is a victim of cyber-bullying and body shaming. She receives tons of negative and nasty comments about her body – and decided to take control and do something about it.
Cassey knows how hurtful comments can be to all of us – “Our friends, our families and just random commenters can really change how we feel about our bodies, and make us feel insecure,” she explained to People magazine.
So she made a powerful video where she photoshops her body into what she thinks the haters think are the ‘perfect body’.
She also posted a picture of her new ‘body’ on instagram and was shocked by the responses. Some people praised her new body and others were still negative. This worried her for two reasons:
“1. That some people think this is real and that it should be “goals.” 2. That some people still think it’s not good enough.”
Frightening. Kudos to Cassey.
