Skinny shaming is just as bad and dangerous as fat shaming. If pointing out at someone for being overweight is bad and wrong, then even pointing out at someone for being thin is. “Why are you so thin? Don’t you eat something? Go and eat something?”
Fat shaming is bad and everybody knows that it can be rude to call someone fat, at least on their face. Then, why isn’t shaming people for being skinny considered to be offensive? Commenting on someone’s body for being thin is really demeaning and annoying. People forget about empathy and continuously remark jokes on people for being skinny. Whenever actors post on social networks, a group of people always criticize and comment something negative. The same thing happens with the beautiful divas of B-town who are constantly trolled for their looks. In fact, some of the social media trolls have no valid reason.
Given below is a list of Bollywood actresses who were trolled for their skinny looks;
In the very recent case, Naagin actress Mouni Roy was being trolled for being “too skinny”.

One of the comments on the photo on Instagram read, “Everything is good, Mouni Roy but you became so thin now a days, especially your hands… looks so skinny.”
