  • Wow, I never saw this or any other pictures of Tammy so thin but I know all about body shaming I shame myself every day I have a genetic disorder called nuerofribromatiois /NF and I have these moe like growths all over my body so I barely go outside in the summer I wear at least 2/3 shirts always trying to cover up I hate my body which makes me hate myself and improbably low key so mean to people because I hate the way I look. I'm angry with GOD I feel like he hated me to have me born with this. And truthfully improbably my mom's prettiest child but because of my body I don't think so

  • Bottomline, you've chosen your platform. No one should make "mean" comments, BUT you willingly put yourself in the "reality" world. Add social changes and your entire life is viewed via camera with your consent. It's totally unrealistic to live that lifestyle and expect no feedback "bad or good".

  • She talking bout negative comments but all the negative stuff she did on bbw I’m just say this god don’t like ugly but god does like karma weather she is ugly or cute…..so within this imma just say I hope she thinks bout her actions against ppl

  • Did anyone else find something wrong with Tami saying people commenting saying she doesn’t look well or wondering if she is ok is a problem? When we care about people and something seems wrong with them, we reach out. When did that become a wrong thing to do?

    • “Because some of those ppl are concerned.” Even if they are concerned, nosy ppl don’t realize what they may be speaking into other ppl’s lives! If folks are that concerned then they wouldn’t be putting undiagnosed health issues onto Tami based off of her physical body image. #IRebuke.

      Quinn94Quinn9416 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • So what people are saying about her looks is hurting her because it's making her think in her mind that she needs to lose more weight which will cause her more health issues mentally and physically so again the words iis hurting her

  • I can relate after a family member told me at age 16 I had a "messed up figure". Other family members thought it was hilarious, but I was humiliated and have suffered with body image issues every since. I am now 66.
