It looks like someone wanted to make Ronda Rousey appear a little bit thinner than she actually is, and the former bantamweight champion is not happy about it…
Ex-UFC women’s bantaweight queen Ronda Rousey has always been an advocate for pride in a woman’s own appearance. In numerous interviews ‘Rowdy’ has spoke of her own body image issues, that haven’t been aided by bullies and insensitive comments, even as recently as her spot in the Carl’s Jr. commercials. In a world where body image has become a distorted yet still highly impressionable issue among the youth it’s somewhat disheartening to hear Rousey has been subject to some air brushing.
That said, it was apparently not under the orders of ‘Rowdy’ herself, and she is rather unhappy about the fact it took place. The photoshop subject was an image of Rousey’s recent appearance in the Conan show, as she explains the story via her Instagram account. Check it out:
I have to make an apology to everyone – I was sent a picture to share on social for Fallon that was altered without me knowing to make my arms look smaller. I won’t say by who – I know it was done with severely misplaced positive intentions – but this goes against everything I believe and I am extremely proud of every inch of my body. And I can assure you all it will never happen again. I could not be more appalled and hope you all forgive me??
In a world as shallow and body conscious as ours, it is refreshing to have someone like Ronda Rousey around. As much grief as she takes from fans and media, she seems like quite an honest and straight forward person.
Which leads us quite nicely on to the next article.
