Lindsey Vonn’s Response To Body Shamers Goes Viral

Lindsey Vonn is one of the most beloved athletes of her time. Despite making a name for herself in ski racing, a sport that is typically ignored by the masses, the 36-year-old has become an undeniable star and earned the adoration of millions of people all over the world.

There are a lot of positives that come with the celebrity lifestyle, like money and fame. There are plenty of negatives, too. One negative? Online bullying. That is something Vonn has experienced a lot of over the years.

In a recent social media post, Vonn fired back at her haters – letting them know what’s what once and for all.

“I’ve posted quite a few swimsuit pics lately, which is scarier than it seems,” she wrote.

“Even as an athlete there are ruthless comments and media stories that tear apart my body and I admit it sometimes hurts me. I’m a normal person and sometimes I slouch, my stomach folds over, my cellulite shows on my butt, or I don’t fill out my swimsuit top just right.”

Despite it all, Vonn refuses to change for anyone or let the online trolling get to her.

“But, I always remember how my body has helped me achieve amazing things in my life and I am proud of how strong I am,” she continued.

“I’m not a size zero and that’s perfectly fine with me. One thing I can promise all of you is that I never Photoshop my photos and am proud to officially never had any plastic surgery of any kind. No Botox, no fillers, no mini surgeries. Literally nothing. I am 100% natural and 100% Lindsey.”
