Ashley Graham’s ex dumped her because he was worried she’d get fat and we can’t stop rolling our eyes

Aside from her stunning looks and overwhelming success in the modeling industry, 29-year-old Ashley Graham is an influential proponent for body positivity. The self-proclaimed ‘curvy’ supermodel has become a symbol for women everywhere to embrace their natural bodies.

Recently, Graham graced the cover of New York Magazine and opened up about a previous boyfriend who dumped her because he was concerned about her size. Needless to say, he made a big mistake.

Supermodel Ashley Graham positively slayed the cover of New York Magazine‘s August Issue.

Yasss queen! All of a sudden, I have the urge to dye my hair and wear all of the leopard print.

Graham opened up about several aspects of her life, including how she feels as though her success is partly contributed to white privilege.

“I know I’m on this pedestal because of white privilege. To not see black or Spanish women as famous in my industry is crazy! I have to talk about it. I want to give those women kudos because they are the ones who paved the way for me,” Graham told NY Mag.

She also reiterated her distaste for the label “plus-sized” in the modeling industry.

Graham explains that it’s not necessarily the term itself she holds issue with, but the ostracization of women who have been associated with it.

“That’s something I’ve always been told: ‘You’re not good enough because you’re plus-size.’” she said. “I’m not here to ban the word from the dictionary — plenty of women own and love it,” but Graham prefers curvy or curve.

Perhaps, one of the most powerful things Graham has offered her fans is the ability to have a supermodel whom they can not only admire, but can see themselves in.

In addition to these modeling insights, Graham also shared a personal story about an ex who dumped her because of her size.

Apparently, Graham’s very first boyfriend in high school “broke up with her because he said he was afraid she’d someday be as fat as his mom,” she told the mag.

Um, EXCUSE ME!?

Graham added, “That really made me hyperaware that I am a big girl, and that’s how people see me.”

Safe to say this high school ex is certainly eating his words and hopefully realizing he was an idiot! LOOK at this beautiful woman and her fine ass husband.
