Cameroonian-born singer and businesswoman, Reprudencia Sonkey popularly known as Dencia, has taken to social media to address the issue of body shaming.
According to her, people have misconstrued the meaning of body shaming because calling a person fat or skinny is not body shaming if the person is truly fat or skinny.
Dencia, in the post she shared on her Instastories, noted that people should not be ashamed or hurt by comments about their bodies, instead they should learn to embrace it.
“Why is it called BODY SHAMING if it’s how ur body is? If you are skinny or fat & they say skinny or fatso, u shouldn’t be ashamed of it.
the action of practice of humiliating someone by making mocking or critical comments about their body shape or size.”
