Lara Worthington Deletes Photos After Fat-Shaming Backlash

Lara Worthington quickly deleted images she shared online Friday morning after she was slammed by followers for ‘fat-shaming’. 

The Australian model, 36, took to Instagram to post pictures from her latest Paris photoshoot which saw her pose in jeans more than twice her size.

But fans turned on the media personality and accused her of being ‘insensitive’ to people with larger bodies, prompting her to quickly take the photos down. 

Posing up a storm in the streets of France, Lara was all smiles in the photos as she slipped her tiny frame into a larger pant size and belt for Side-Note magazine. 

The loose sides were stitched together and held out to further accentuate the size difference between Lara and the black garment.

Little context was given for the photoshoot, with the caption reading only: ‘Me by @jessrubyjames & @vanessa_coyle for @side__note in Paris.’

Followers flocked to the comments of the post to slam Lara for ‘fat-shaming’ and making ‘insensitive’ commentary on other women’s bodies with the photos. 

‘This looks really bad. Not sure what they were thinking when doing this shoot, but probably should post with a caption for context as it looks quite insensitive,’ one said.

Another added, ‘Is she fat shaming here? Wtf is this?’ while a third wrote, ‘Insensitive,’ next to a sad face emoji.

Someone else commented: ‘She is smiling, this doesn’t appear to be funny, more very inappropriate. Bad choice by her no matter which way you look at it.’

‘Not an image that should be put out there by the fashion industry,’ one user said.

Yet another chimed in with: ‘Are you having a go at people bigger than you? Yuck.’

Despite the slew of criticism Lara received for the images, some fans spoke up in her defence.

‘It’s a great photo, nothing to do with fat shaming just a visual, people need to lighten up,’ one wrote.

Someone else said, ‘Love a wide leg pant,’ while another posted a series of fire emojis beneath the post. 

Several other followers simply wrote the word ‘love’ to share their support.
