She told them, ‘This is not the first time I’ve seen myself in some sort of shaming group. I think a lot of people do not know how to react to somebody like me, so it’s definitely not new territory.’
Talking about some of the spiteful comments, Amanda added, ‘Some of this borderlines on slut shaming and body shaming. I am confident and I love my body and I don’t feel I need to hide it.’
And while some had accused her of upstaging the bride, Amanda was quick to shut down the claims.
Speaking about the happy couple, who are both friends of Amanda, she explained, ‘They knew me and how I dress and still wanted me there.
‘Plus it’s summer, I’m not sweating my a** off because some people are scared of boobs and fat people. Also the bride loved my dress.’
Addressing the problems with body shaming, Amanda added, ‘I am fortunate enough to be comfortable and confident in my skin, but I do know how it affects many women who have not reached that point in their life yet of being comfortable and confident.’
