'Fat and lazy' weight loss billboard sparks debate about body-shaming.

ADVERTISING

A billboard displayed in NYC's Times Square has caused outrage online after it was called out by actor and activist Jameela Jamil. The billboard shows a plus-sized woman in workout gear with her head in her hands, and it reads: "Feeling FAT and LAZY?" It also shows a photo of a fit woman, who turns out to be “wellness motivator” Deborah Capaccio, wearing the same workout gear, along with a link to her website: GetYourSparkleBackGirl.com.

Many people are criticizing the ad online, including Jameela Jamil, who called it "blatantly fat phobic and also quite ableist."
