Alexa Chung Bashed For 'Thinspiration' Instagram Photo

Alexa Chung innocently posted the below picture of herself posing next to her mother on her Instagram account, only to be met with hateful and unwanted criticism. In the photo, Alexa can be seen in a short denim shirt dress, which accentuates her skinny legs. Commenters on the photo claimed it was "unhealthy" and "disgustingly skinny".

At first, Alexa tried to responded reasonably to her critics, commenting: "Ok everyone thanks for the teen angst discussions." Which she later followed up with ""People are different sizes. I'm not trying to be thinspo for anyone." and "Hi, I am here. I can read." Alexa soon decided to make her Instagram account private, writing to fans: ""I am now making this acct private. Byyyyyeeee."

Previously, Alexa has commented on bullies she has encountered online stating that people often go too far, which is why she quit twitter: "It basically got really nasty and they were like, 'We're going to stab you.' It was genuinely horrible. I stopped using Twitter for a while because I got so much s*** about being anorexic. And I'm not."
