scandal 01/06/2018

Being criticised for the way you look almost comes as part of the package for celebs these days unfortunately. But actress Tara Reid has actually made headlines for one of her latest Insta posts, where fans were concerned about her weight.

Posting a pic of her handing with some friends in the Dominican Republic, Tara captioned: "Having the best time with my girls in Casa de Camp, Dominican Republic #happymemorialday."

The pic obviously proved controvesial to some people, with comments urging her to 'see a therapist' and saying she is promoting an 'unhealthy body image'.

The post was hit with many cruel comments, including: "I'm gonna need you to put on 30lb before you post again, thanks", ""Don't they sell cheeseburgers where you are?",  "Are you blind don't encourage unhealthy body image", and "Please see a therapist! Wow you were so beautiful before what happened to you?!"

Wow guys. Come on.

Tara responded to the backlash with a Tweet saying "Despite the hate received by some gossip sites, glad to see some sites focused on the intent. Relaxing with my friends during the holiday weekend":

The American Pie actress has been targeted for her weight a lot over the years, but Tara herself recently insisted she's 'never been anorexic' and said she's sick of people 'watching her eat'.

She told The Daily Mail: "I am not anorexic. I have never been anorexic and I don't have an eating disorder... I am just thin."

"People are overweight and we don't attack them every time they go out."

Some fans were thankfully on her side, commenting "Wow so much hate!! You know why people end up taking extreme measures with their appearance?" and "Don't let the world get you down. Don't let people get you down. The only person on the world who matters is you, and that's where all of your love and focus needs to be. You've got to love yourself first, and take care for yourself first."
