Fat-shaming has never been okay, and that to a kid is absolutely heinous. This proves how cruel and heartless a person is, mocking a child’s body structure. During a recent episode of the American talk show “The View,” Raven-Symoné revealed that she was constantly body shamed at the age of even on the set of “The Cosby Show,” of all places.
"I remember not being able to have the bagel or anything at – we would call it crafty, where it's just a table of food, ready for you to eat whatever you want. And I remember people would be like, 'You can't eat that. You're getting fat!' I'm like, 'I'm 7! I'm hungry!'"
She doesn't want to disclose the identity of said shamer. "I'm not going to put them on blast, but that's what I was told at that young of an age," she said. "Even up until I got up to 180 lbs. on 'That's So Raven,' you put nasty stuff in front of me, or you put images of these women that I'll never aspire to, of course, I'm going to get depressed."
"It's more than just the food – it's what's in the food, and it's your cortisol level and it's your serotonin level," she gave the reason. "That has a really strong effect on your body type."
