If we were to ask you to come up with a list of the top 10 celebrities who frequently get body shamed by the media, Vin Diesel would most likely not make the cut. Heck, the inanely chiseled star probably wouldn't even crack your top 100 -- but believe it or not, the man himself claims he's received more than one dig at his frame in recent weeks, and he's more than a little tired of it.
"It is amazing the response from the journalists who I have been talking to for the last two days in New York," Diesel wrote on Instagram, after a weekend of promoting "The Last Witch Hunter" at New York Comic Con. "Today one wanted to see the dad bod. Haha. I am wondering if I should show the picture... Body-shaming is always wrong! What do you think?"
Diesel received a whole gaggle of not-so-nice "dad bod" tabloid headlines in the week before NYCC, when the actor was photographed shirtless in Miami. But Diesel being Diesel, he used the power of social media to quickly dispel the rumor that he was slacking on his workout routine.
"The pic from yesterday... For those who wanted the show... For all the angels that love dad bod regardless... I will post an exclusive video on my Facebook when I am done with press today," the actor captioned on a second, decidedly more ab-tastic pic.
We're still waiting for this sure-to-be-life changing Facebook video, but in the meantime, at least we know Dom Toretto hasn't been skipping out on ab day.
