Plus-Size Model Tess Holliday Boycotting Uber for Fat-Shaming

posted by @CatalinaOnAir -

Tess Holliday does. Not. Play. The plus-size model is also a body positive activist and comes for people when they try to shame her.

Tess was riding in an Uber black car (which costs extra) when the driver asked her about her weight and her freaking CHOLESTEROL. 

Hold up.

In what social situation is it okay for a stranger to ask about your personal health uninvited?

Tess posted a clip of the conversation on Instagram making sure to tag Uber and let them know she is DONE.

Hey @uber I don't pay more to use your "black car" service to be told that there's no way I could possibly be healthy because I'm fat & then questioning it. No one should have to tolerate this at any level of the services you offer. I'm fat. I also have a fat wallet & will no longer be using your services. Ever. Also after I told him I was healthy he turned the radio off & changed the subject. #putmymoneywheremymouthis #uberdriver #uber Edited to add: saying my driver is fat was obviously being used as a descriptor & not to insult him. Also I did not show his face or use his name when filming, it was to be able to show what I deal with daily & why this behavior is unacceptable from anyone.
