You won't believe how thin the Internet's pretense is for scrutinizing a woman's body.

Fans were shocked this week by the way bikini photos of Sharknado 3 actress Tara Reid were reproduced, zoomed in on, and gawked at by the public. Reid was photographed on Miami Beach on Friday for a photoshoot, and the images quickly spread because people are obsessed with the amount and distribution of fat on women's bodies.

A source close to the 39-year-old actress said she couldn't believe the Internet had no idea how bad it looked when it used faux concern as an excuse to stare at and pass judgment on a complete stranger's butt cheeks.
