If you’re regularly on social media, then you know who Chase Hudson is. Hudson (also known as Lil Huddy) is a social media star with over 19 million followers on TikTok. He is also known as one of the co-founders of the now infamous Hype House.
While Hudson has been in the media for numerous things over the past year or so, he is currently receiving a lot of negativity. The negative comments aren’t in regards to a newfound scandal, but more-so about his weight.
Hudson is receiving quite a lot of body-shaming comments. When most people think of the term “body-shaming”, they automatically connect the term with individuals that are “overweight”. However, body-shaming can also refer to bullying people, that are “too skinny” or “underweight”.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that he’s received comments about his weight. Whenever he posted a TikTok of him shirtless in the past, comments are flooded with things like: “spaghetti noodle arms”. People are constantly going after the TikToker for being “too skinny” and “not eating enough”.
Back in February, Hudson uploaded a video to his YouTube channel, titled: “Reacting To TikToks About Me”. While some were comical and sweet, others mocked him for being “too skinny” and “never working out”. Hudson then took the time to address these comments. “I have a very very fast metabolism, and I’m very tall. I do eat. Trust me, I eat. But, I’m sorry. It’s just the way it is. Keep the jokes coming. I really don’t care.”
He also addressed the “lack of gym” comments. “I don’t really have time to work out. I know a lot of people just wake up early, so they can work out. I wanna get my eight hours. I love sleep!”
Although a majority of the YouTube comments contained positive messages towards Hudson, the body-shaming comments on TikTok continued to roll in.
Yesterday, TikToker and Hype House member, Tony Lopez, posted a TikTok with Hudson. They were wearing vests, and were riding on a jet ski. Although they had some type of covering, Hudson’s arms were still exposed. Well, trolls took advantage of that moment, and started leaving negative comments, regarding Hudson’s weight.
However, Lopez took to the comment section to set the record straight. Although Hudson had previously stated that the comments don’t bother him, Lopez stood up for his friend.
“Stop body shaming Chase. Grow the f*ck up. Only act like that over the internet lol”, he wrote.
Lopez then went on Instagram to post a message for the internet trolls:
Earlier today, he posted once again, asking for people to compliment Hudson on his most recent post.
It’s really upsetting that society feels the need to judge people, based off of their appearance. The world can always use a little more positivity; especially during times like COVID-19.
