Before I go into the details, I want to say this. I have curves. A shed load of curves, even my curves have curves and yet I am STILL against any type of affirmation that puts down one group of people to make another group feel better.
Yesterday it was brought to my attention that Superdrug had posted this picture on their Facebook page.
Firstly, let's not even start on the use of the word girls.
Secondly, Hello, body shaming much?
So I posted this on their page.
After approx 60 people pressed "Like" the whole post was quietly removed by Superdrug without a word.
No apology, just a quiet removal.
So I posted again on their page asking if they were going to apologise for their body shaming.
And this morning, found this reply.
I do not even want to discuss the smiley face at the end, why not just add the word, LOL at the end and have done with it?
THAT'S not an apology for body shaming, for alienating a type of woman and trying to make them feel that they aren't as good as another?
That is a damn sorry excuse of an apology and I don't think it runs true.
I have now posted again on their page.
You can see the comments here. https://www.facebook.com/Superdrug/posts/10151808653526775
I would love your thoughts on this, and I am SURE Superdrug would too.
So let me know.

So at 1pm this came through on Twitter.
And then 5 minutes ago this was on my comment on the Facebook wall.
I am frustrated. I think if they were serious about their apology then it would go out to everyone and not just be hidden away in a comment. I also find it hard to believe they celebrate ALL body types by saying that ones with curves are best.
What do you think?
