SC Principal accused of fat shaming

posted by Kelly Nash - 

In Berkeley County, Stratford High School principal, Heather Taylor, addressed a 10th grade assembly regarding dress code. When she got to leggings for the ladies she said  “I’ve told you this before, I’m going to tell you this now. Unless you’re a size 0 or a 2 and you wear something like that, even though you’re not fat, you look fat.”

Parents and students immediately came down hard on Facebook and other venues! The principal said “Yesterday and this morning, I met with each class of the Stratford High School student body. I addressed a comment made during a 10th grade assembly and shared from my heart that my intention was not to hurt or offend any of my students in any way. I assured them all that I am one of their biggest fans and invested in their success.” 

Stratford High sophomore Allison Veazey tells WCBD News 2I’m not a size zero and I kind of felt targeted because of my size,” she said. “It was really hurtful because I felt like my size made me look, you know, disgusting towards someone in the clothes that I wear.” 

The average American woman is either a size 14 or 16 depending on which study you look at according to NBC News
