Cyberbullying is one of the things that most people, especially celebrities face on a daily basis. It ranges from body shaming to ridiculing them about anything that they might have posted on their social media.
Biodun Sofuyi Okeowo who is a Nigerian actress and brand influence has decided to address the issue of body shaming in one of her recent posts on Instagram. Yesterday the actress posted a video of herself where she was showing appreciation for her curvaceous body and one of her followers took to her comment section and body-shamed her.
The follower posed a question to Biodun and said, ”Why hiding that big fat arms, afi bi ti isu ewura”. In a response hours later, the actress told the follower that she loves her arms and that she should practice self-love but Biodun did not stop there.
The skin therapist went on her Instagram page to address the issue at hand. Biodun shared two pictures and one of the pictures shows the body-shaming comment she received.
In a lengthy caption, the actress lashed back by saying that the very same arms that are being shamed get paid billions from fashion brands.
She further added that people should not seek public validation but rather yet satisfy themselves and she loves her fat arms because they bring her a fat account balance.

Good morning guys. I woke to a comment where a lady body shamed me😀… that my arms looks like Isu Ewura (water yam)Jesus 😳😃! This arms that brands pays millions for to wear there cloths and advertise their business etc Lord I’m grateful 🙏 Reason for posting this. Ladies let’s stop body shaming. You body shame people with natural body, yet you body shame when they go for surgery. How do we satisfy people? Answer: just satisfy yourself, live your life, do you and don’t seek public validation for anything you want. I’ve been bashed and insulted for flaunting my back, but that doesn’t stop me from doing what I love 🤪. Having said this, ladies please don’t let any haters run you down or body shame you with their gutter mouths. Love yourself in your own skin… I have fat arms that brings fat account balance 💃🏿. I wish you all a blessed day🙏. Jumpsuit from @laluvii
