In the latest issue Oprah Magazine Body-Shames readers with bad fashion advice.  O Magazine  hit the stands on July 8th, there is a bunch of readers who are not happy and upset about the publication’s recent fashion advice.

In the Q and A fashion section of the magazine a reader asked, “Can I pull off a crop top?” The magazine  writer answered, “If (and only if!) you have a flat stomach, feel free to try one.”

Excuse me?

I thought O Magazine, Oprah network would be more about empowering women to be the best they can be, if you want to wear a crop top find the right size would be my answer!

Mostly because, [the Oprah Magazine note] went against everything I advocate for.” She inspired the hashtag #rockthecrop, and tons of women have been using it to show off how amazing they look in crop tops.

Anytime the issue of body-shaming or policing what women wear comes up, there are a fair amount of people who say things like, “Well, it’s not healthy to be FAT.” Blah, blah, blah. It’s also not healthy to be crippled by body image issues and have poor self esteem; ask anyone who has suffered from an eating disorder.

So Oprah Magazine — you got it wrong. The answer to “can I pull off a crop top” is “Millions, times yes!!!
