By now it should be common knowledge: You don’t mess with Ashley Graham on the ‘gram.

The 30-year-old model continues to thrive as a champion for body diversity and body positivity but despite her busy career, Graham always takes the time to keep her body shamers in check.

Graham recently flexed her clap back muscles after receiving a comment from a follower who was clearly misinformed.

During a recent vacation, the brunette beauty shared a video of herself to Instagram, dancing to N.E.R.D. and Rihanna’s summer jam, “Lemon,” while sporting a bikini.


While Graham was clearly feelin’ herself, a follower not so subtly suggested that the Sports Illustrated cover model looked pregnant.

“Good Morning… Ashley!!!!$ Looking good…. Baby bump…. :))))),” the person commented. 

Friendly? Sure. Rude? Definitely.

The star wasted no time putting the follower in their place by replying, “That’s just called fat.”

At this stage of her career, Graham has dealt with her fair share of body-shaming. However no amount of criticism can seem to shake her.

 I kind of just give my middle finger to [haters], like, ‘Guess what? I’m really hot,’” Graham said in a 2016 interview with Glamour. “Every day I get at least 20 messages [saying I’ve helped them]. I hope they look in the mirror and say, ‘I am beautiful.’ When you do that, it’s a whole other ball game—you start to understand that your words have power.”
