Looks really good 👍 @chobani
Just a heads up @chobani, her hashtags are mainly pro-anorexia. Let's be HEALTHY! Everyone isn't aspiring to be THIN!
@theriver_oshun no kidding, really sad. They aren't even her pictures, just "thin-spiration" pics :(
:-/ Yup @rachelrachellehcarlehcar
Now that looks good!
Yes, I wish the social media team would be a little more careful about what they repost/who they link to. I am trying to live a healthy lifestyle, not a disordered one. Additionally, this likely is not her picture.
She has her starting and current weight...128 down to 114 and still wanting to lose? Not healthy.
Hi, @aspiringcat @mudkipz21 @wdpaddock @theriver_oshun @rachelrachellehcarlehcar. We too fully support living active, healthy lifestyles, and apologize for any offense. Happy New Year!
@chobani thank you for the response. It's a serious illness not to be taken lightly. At all.
Just to point out a fact- you can be what others view as too thin and still be very healthy. I am considered "too thin" by the peanut gallery and I eat Chobani @chobani every morning for breakfast, a banana for a snack, wheat wrap sandwich (no mayo- its unneeded fat) and cottage cheese for lunch, and a dinner of my choosing i.e grilled turkey and cheese with baked sweet potato and cottage cheese. I have lost 24 lbs doing this type of routine and have been completely healthy! I am down to 119, and feel great! I love to eat and if you look at that girls page- she prob does too. Maybe she chooses flaxseed whole wheat pancakes over sausage mcmuffin, but it's her choice. @tosayididit Either way- I say good for her.
And ps... It's really unnecessary and a little offensive for one who weighs more to give someone else grief for being skinny as much as it would be for some who weighs less to give a larger person grief about what they're eating or how they weigh too much. As humans, we need to remember our differences and remind ourselves that our opinions affect others and keep them to ourselves. Remember that when telling someone they're too skinny next time too.
@adub7905 the point isn't to judge a woman's choices, but to be cautious of potentially triggering material for people who have suffered or do suffer from eating disorders.
I would agree in the event that this were a closed environment. This is a public forum where freedom of speech/self expression is rampant. To limit what I say or how I feel based on another's dislikes would be doing myself a disservice. Unfortunately, I have some friends with eating disorders and by no means am I insensitive to their feelings or disease, however, neither are they to my lack there of. @aspiringcat
It is definitely agreed that the point is not to judge ANYONEs choices- whether a woman or a man though. @aspiringcat
@adub7905 Your specific weight is actually irrelevant and in itself triggering, and therefore I doubt that you actually get the point.
For this young lady to obviously have aspirations to be thin is her business. Not judging. EVERYONE does NOT want a thigh gap. But, I was just stating that @chobani be mindful of who they endorse. Hashtagging is endorsing, and she is definitely endorsing a pro-anorexia lifestyle. It works for her as inspiration, Congrats!
@aspiringcat As per typical- ignorance is bliss in your case. Alas, freedom of speech/self expression is what makes us Americans. Go ahead- ill let you have the last word.
@adub7905 Claiming "freedom of speech" in a situation of a supposed health brand carelessly linking to material that is openly promoting "thinspiration" (once again, not anyone's personal opinion about the woman's specific weight, but a fact that that is how she tags "her" images) and other concepts blatantly associated with perpetuating actual eating disorders, is really not doing anything to address the issue of corporate irresponsibility. IF you want to talk about "American" concepts, let us discuss how it is our responsibility as consumers to get what we want out of our money. We do not just ACCEPT poor quality products, upsetting marketing, our terrible corporate behavior... Or, per the original motivation of capitalism, we should not (apathy today usually does show that we do, because why bother exercise any freedoms). We have choices as consumers, and additionally the right to voice our concerns (if you like freedom of speech). I am concerned that a brand that markets itself as healthy is linking to something openly associating with eating disorders. This is an issue, since it has happened more than once and at this point seems like real negligence despite "apology," that could make me switch brands. The company should be aware of utheir activities
@adub7905 the company should be aware of how their activities are impacting their consumers, as that ultimately does impact their bottom line. Additionally, as those pictures are mostly if not entirely reported without credit, it is irresponsible for a company to repost and link to them for that reason. As for the woman herself, what she posts on the Internet is totally her business & her specific weight (or yours) is irrelevant to any argument about corporate responsibility.
@aspiringcat you're so correct. Thanks for stating the truth. @adub7905 is obviously missing the point and doesn't understand the severity of eating disorders.
I wasn't going to comment but after going through @tosayididit's account, and reading her hash tags and looking at her pictures I have to come to the conclusion that you guys who are saying she is "anorexic" are clueless. They ARE NOT "pro anorexia! Shame on all of you. She promotes healthy foods and tags them with "healthy" "fitspo" and occasionally throws in a "thinspo" but NONE of those are anorexic hashtags. How judgmental of all of you. And FYI not everyone is aspiring to be fat either. And if you go by today's standards of what we "should" weigh, we would all be 10% OVERweight. BTW I sometimes use the hashtag of thinspo and I am nowhere near anorexic. Lets not jump to conclusions here. #youdontknowher
@fitness_heather The Gap just had the same issue. You Yup in gap in hashtags and pro-anorexia info comes up.
Oh come on people..really!? It's Chobani!! Not pro Ana or obesity or normal weight!! It's a tasty snack!! Who cares where it came from! Geez!! Grow up!
U don't hear about anyone except us egotiscal, self-important,self-entitled Americans having a spat this utterly stupid. It doesn't matter what ur eating problems are, cuz quite frankly, people will make their own decisions. And to think, a lot of my brothers and sisters got killed & I got myself shot all to hades to keep terrorists away from folks like y'all. Heck! let the terrorists read some of this garbage & they will stop, cuz they know we will debate each other to death!......ps...Chobani I still lllloooooovvvvveeee u!
