Justin Bieber is a lot of things, and fat is not one of them.
I mean, look at him here:
And even here.
So when he posted this pic of him enjoying his 21st birthday with the caption, "Great birthday and I'm not fat it's the angle," it got me thinking: why?
While he may be joking, to me, it comes off that Justin feels the need to defend his physique before the body shaming begins. Because let's be honest, it probably would have, even though it doesn't look like he's gained a pound.
We usually associate fat shaming with women, but it does happen to men as well. Remember when they called Leonardo DiCaprio "The Great Fatsby" or when Rob Kardashian's weight was a trending topic on Twitter? Not cool.
Justin may have felt the need to include that particular caption in the picture since he it was reported that his Calvin Klein ads were photoshopped -- there's legal proof that they weren't -- but its just disheartening that he even thought of himself as fat in the first place.
