Pop star Demi Lovato is completely over filtering images of herself in order to meet social media’s unrealistic standards of beauty.
In her latest Instagram post, Lovato dropped a sexy bikini pic, showing off her curvaceous figure. What seemed to be just another IG photo-op turned out to be a powerful statement, empowering women to embrace their natural bodies.
“This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!!” Lovato wrote.
“I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited — and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got.”
Lovato’s post instantly went viral, inspiring women everywhere to adore their curves, stretch marks, dimples, and more.
Take a look at some of the Twitter reactions below.
Black Student Awarded $725k in Lawsuit against Neo-Nazi Follower
The first black woman to serve as American University’s student government president celebrated Friday after a lawsuit win in federal court against a neo-Nazi website manager who launched an online hate movement against her.
A federal judge awarded Taylor Dumspon, 22, approximately $725,000 after The Daily Stormer blog founder Andrew Anglin failed to respond to her lawsuit.
Dumpson was named student government president in 2017. The historic moment on AU’s campus amassed the attention of dozens of white supremacists, including Anglin, who directed his followers to troll Dumpson via social media after hearing the news, and a suspect who hung nooses with bananas containing racist messages on the university’s campus.
Here’s a breakdown of Dumpson’s settlement:
- $101,429.28 for compensatory damages
- $500,000 for punitive damages costs
- $124,022.10 for attorneys’ fees and costs.
The judge is also said to have placed a restraining order against Anglin, his Moonbase Holdings limited liability company, and Brian Andrew Ade for internet harassment.
“This ruling should send a strong message to other white supremacists that they can and will be held accountable for hateful activity that constitutes unlawful discrimination, no matter whether it occurs online or in the real world,” said Kristen Clarke, the president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. The organization represented Dumpson in the case.
Missouri on track to become first state without an abortion clinic
According to Planned Parenthood, Missouri’s last abortion clinic could possibly close its doors by the end of the week due to the state’s pending decision on whether or now it will renew the business’ license.
In a teleconference on Tuesday (May 28), Planned Parenthood reps reported that the current license for the St. Louis clinic expires Friday.
If a renewal is not set in place, the organization claims Missouri would become the first state without a functioning abortion clinic since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.
“This is not a drill,” said Dr. Leana Wen, president, and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “This is not a warning. This is real and it’s a public health crisis.”
Gov. Parson signed a bill Friday banning abortions on or beyond the eighth week of pregnancy, with no exceptions for rape or incest.
Filmmakers protest anti-abortion laws at Cannes Film festival
Cannes Film festival has kicked off with an interesting start! On Saturday, moments before the premiere of a controversial Argentine documentary, centering abortion rights, dozens of women used the red carpet as a meeting place to protest against the issue.
The group of women reportedly included filmmakers who wore green ahead of the premiere of Argentine director Juan Solanas’ “Let It Be Law.”
Argentina’s Senate rejected a bill to legalize abortion last year. A modified version of the bill will be presented to Congress on May 28, per AP.
On Tuesday, the Alabama Senate passed a bill that would outlaw almost all abortions in the state, including those involving pregnancies from rape or incest.
