You may not be familiar with the name Nina Agdal, but you’ve almost certainly seen her face. In addition to being a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, the 24-year-old is also dating Leonardo DiCaprio. (Insert my personal opinion about how I’m slightly worried for Leo’s emotional well-being and that I hope he finds true love someday.)
Page Six recently interviewed Agdal about her exercise regimen and, most notably (?), her butt. Apparently, Agdal is under the impression that her rear is on the larger side. “My friends always joke around because whenever I turn around, I’ll bump into stuff because I forget that it’s there,” she says. “In stores, I’ll knock over glasses or candles or whatever. (Weight gain) goes there or on my face. But definitely down there.”
Page Six then gave the interview the spiffy headline, “Nina Agdal claims her butt is so big it knocks stuff over,” and sent it out into the Twitterverse — complete with a triptych thumbnail of Agdal’s “big” butt in various outfits. They even dared to add the peach emoji, implying that Agdal’s caboose was curvaceous enough to warrant it.
Not surprisingly, Twitter scoffed at the claim that this 24-year-old Danish supermodel’s butt was large or even close to large. Nice try, Page Six, but nobody’s buying the booty myths you’re selling.
Many Twitter users set about looking for Agdal’s “big butt,” but they all came up empty.
Everyone had to take a minute to laugh, because the whole thing just seemed like some sort of colossal joke.
Sorry, Nina. Sorry, Page Six. While body image issues are real for everyone, even supermodels, please do not insult women with actual full-figured butts by shilling out this nonsense.
And y’all wonder why people have body insecurities.
