The Chive took their time apologizing for misusing a woman's personal photos.

The Chive made a major oopsies yesterday when they published a collection of random “amazing weight loss transformations" images including, one set of a woman with anorexia.

That woman, Anne Marie Sengillo, posted a series of photos on a subreddit called r/ProgressPics to share her eating disorder recovery journey and inspire others. Sengillo's post included a photo of her before she developed an eating disorder (150 pounds) and a photo of her at her sickest (at the time that photo was taken, she was exercising for 4-5 hours a day and ate less than 800 calories) that The Chive used as part of their before/after story.
