Plus-size Model, Tess Holliday Responds to Piers Morgans' Criticism

Piers Morgan took a shot at Cosmo magazine UK for featuring a plus-size model on its cover saying it glorifies obesity and is just as misguided as celebrating size zero models.

Tess Holliday is the model that is featured on the cover of the magazine.  She's a 33-year-old model who has made a career out of being open with her struggle with weight.

Piers said "As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo. Apparently we're supposed to view it as a 'huge step forward for body positivity.' What a load of old baloney. This cover is just as dangerous & misguided as celebrating size zero models."

His followers mostly commented in support of his position, although Holliday herself did not appreciate his comments:

Tess just responded to Piers, saying, "To everyone saying I’m a burden to the British health care system, I’m american so you don’t have to worry about my fat ass. Worry about what horrible people you are by whining about how me being on the cover of a glossy magazine impacts your small minded life."
