My Big Fat Fabulous Life‘s Whitney Way Thore has been deemed a poor role model for women by some of her followers. This title comes as a shock to the rest of her fans since many believe she has pioneered the body-positive movement.
Whitney danced her way into fans’ hearts with a YouTube video that showed her a bit overweight but still happy to follow her passion. From there, she was given a TLC show that aimed to show the inner workings of an obese woman just trying to live her daily life. She has had plenty of challenges, the most significant being having her engagement end due to Chase Severino cheating. TLC fans have rooted for Thore since day one and are looking forward to a new season to start soon.

There are many followers who feel that Thore is an inspiration, but a couple, in particular, took to Reddit to share their disdain for the popular reality star. One fan wrote, “I don’t watch this show very often, but when I do, Whitney is always crying and whining. Her life seems anything but fabulous, more like trash. Just keeping it real. Real truth.” The statement seemed a bit harsh to many, but for some, it resonated a deeper meaning.
Many TLC fans backed the dancer up, saying that they were excited to see a plus-size woman being physically active when the show first started. The majority stuck with her journey as she went through trying to find love and a life balance. As viewers are well aware, this type of representation is not one we see often. But now, some irate fans are noting that this is not the heroine they were given. Instead, they were given, “a woman who had her mother shaves her on camera, acts like a spoiled child, and is far from [inspirational].”
While it may be easy for viewers who rarely watch the show to pick on Thore, there seem to be more positives than negatives. Being a part of a reality show always comes with its fair share of trolls. Fans of My Big Fat Fabulous Life are more interested in learning if Thore went through with the gastric bypass surgery after contemplating wanting a normal life last season. There have been theories that she has, but followers will have to wait and watch the new series.
