A TikToker blasted viewers who said her relationship doesn’t add up because she and her husband have different body types.
One of the most popular people on the social media platform is known for promoting body positivity and self-love.
The responses to her TikTok’s are not always positive.
In a recent video, she called out the reaction to one of her videos as disappointing. The clip showed her and Scott in towels, and then they were ready for the formal event.
A lot of people were surprised that she and Scott were a couple when they watched the video.
She called out people who had questioned why someone who was physically fit would be with someone who was fat.
“The world looks at us and immediately values Scott more than me. And since we don’t add up, people try to add things to my side of the equation to make it make sense by saying things like, ‘Oh, she must not have been fat when they met’ or ‘Oh, she’s got to be rich,’” she said in the clip.
“Or they try to decrease his side of the equation by saying things like, ‘He must be gay’ or ‘He fetishes fat women,’” Alicia continued.
“We’ve been made to believe that somebody who is physically fit like Scott could never in a million years be in love with or compatible with a fat woman. And that’s solely because the world has literally taught us that we have to value our worth on our bodies,” she added.
“On the scale of what my husband values, how well my body fits into the beauty standard is not at the top of his list. He values my humor and my commitment and my love and my caring heart — and none of these things he values about me changes when my body changes,” Alicia explained.
She said that it is our responsibility to learn from the damaging ideas society has taught us.
“If this is the way you think, it’s the way you’ve been taught. However, it is your responsibility to unlearn it,” she told her followers.
