January 23, 2023

A PLUS-SIZE woman shamed for using the gym is turning the shame around on the body haters.

Santa Baby’s (@aminimalbae) TikTok takedown is a clarion call to all big women out there.


She was incredulous when she was criticized for working out.

“I was fat-shamed at the gym today,” she said, still wearing her gym gear.

“This is why big people don’t go to the gym.”

The irony was lost on the body critics: "I've been told my whole life to lose weight and go to the gym.

“Well, here I am at the gym but I’m still fat-shamed for going.”

But sassy Santa Baby is having none of it. “Fat shaming really? At the gym?”

She is a proud plus-size woman, who describes gym visits as her “therapy”.

Gym babe is hopes slaying her detractors will inspire other big women like her.
