Tess Holliday has always been an advocate and leading force in the body-positive movement, so it's little surprise that she called out an Uber driver who thought it a good idea to discuss her health during their drive together. In 2015, she was among several plus-sized models who were photoshopped to appear thinner and "healthier".
But still, even now, Holliday is forced to defend her body - and her health.
"No one should have to tolerate this at any level of the services you offer", she wrote.
The 31-year-old was not at all pleased and took to Instagram to voice her frustrations and said that the driver was body shaming her.
"I'm fat. I also have a fat wallet & will no longer be using your services". In the clip, the driver asks Holliday about her cholesterol-not your typical cab talk-to which Holliday responds, "My cholesterol is fine, I'm perfect-I'm healthy".
Holliday faced backlash herself for calling her driver "fat" in the video, as one of her followers pointed out, "Looks like you're doing some shaming yourself".
After this altercation, Holliday is vowing to never use Uber again.
Holliday's video now has over 306,000 views.
Uber drivers are usually not professional drivers, it should be noted.
Tess clarified her reasons in a Tweet, saying: 'To everyone that keeps saying "well we don't know the full conversation" I say REALLY?!
The model said she called this particular act out "to show what I deal with daily and why this behaviour is unacceptable from anyone".
She then edited her caption and added: "Edited to add: saying my driver is fat was obviously being used as a descriptor & not to insult him. He wasn't 'curious" he was shaming me.
Holiday became globally recognised after she was signed by London-based Milk Model Management in 2015, making history by becoming the first woman of her size and height to be represented by a major agency.
