Sam Smith came under fire recently when he posted a video to his Instagram of a woman eating a large breakfast with the caption, “Good going.”
People were instantly angered by the post, including the woman in the video, saying that he is fat shaming. “It seems as if he is fat-shaming me for having such a big breakfast,” the woman in the video says. She continued: “He has 9.5 million followers – and anyone who knew me and followed him would recognize me right away. Imagine if I was a girl who was even slightly insecure about her weight.”
Smith, who has undergone a dramatic weight transformation himself, is now responding via spokesperson by saying that the claims are just not true. The singer insists that the video was made because he was jealous of the woman’s big, ‘fabulous’ breakfast.
