Cassie Young is a successful reporter and works at The Bert Show as a Web and Social Media Director. Cassie was absolutely thrilled when her boyfriend Chad proposed to her, and she said yes! The lovely couple has been together for just about ten years and could start planning their wedding day.
When she announced the terrific news on her social media profiles, Cassie received a message from a personal trainer on Twitter who wanted to advertise his services.
“Congratulations on your engagement,” the message reads. Hire me to get in shape for your wedding. I charge 75 dollars an hour and I’m worth every penny. I have a Masters degree in Kinesiology and my undergraduate was dual major exercise science and nutrition food sciene.”
Cassie then simply replied politely that she wasn’t interested in his services, and told him she already was in shape.
Unfortunately, the personal trainer didn’t stop there and kept on harassing Cassie until a point where he downright fat-shamed her completely.
“I know you want to look your best on your wedding day. If you don’t hire me hire someone. Those pictures last centuries. Your children’s children’s children will still have those pictures. You want your best you.”
Cassie refused to let herself get insulted by a stranger on the internet who claims to be a professional trainer, and she responded firmly yet politely to the bizarre conversation.
“I know I’ll look my best because I’ll be so happy I get to marry the man I love! I know it’s probably hard for you to understand this, but it’s taken a long time for me to love my body. I am constantly shamed or reminded that I am heavy and should be embarrassed.”
