Love Island's Anna Vakili has been labeled the series' first ever "plus-sized" contestant and the reality show's fans are not happy. The show has long had issues with a lack of body diversity, but it appears this is the last straw for some viewers. Many feel that the flat-tummied and toned Vakili should not be classified as plus-sized and are taking to social media to express their desire for actual plus representation.
Love Island bosses defend lack of plus size cast for new series and say ‘we want them to be attractive and fall in love with each other’ https://t.co/n6xwucARNm— The Sun Showbiz (@TheSunShowbiz) May 29, 2019
Stop contributing to this idea that “fat=unlovable”. You can be representative AND have contestants that actually fancy each other because plus size people can be attractive! It’s called LOVE Island not “supermodel” island. ANYONE can + should find love regardless of size! 🙄🙄🙄— Carrie Hope Fletcher (@CarrieHFletcher) May 30, 2019
