Oh snap! Raven-Symone dropped a major truth bomb to the ladies on The View on Monday, Sept. 28.
While the co-hosts were discussing the pressure some women feel to lose their baby weight after giving birth, the actress revealed her own body-shaming struggles.
“You don’t even know what I went through,” the That’s So Raven actress, 29, said. “On State of Georgia, they had me wear a fat suit. Because they said I wasn’t the size they wanted me to be.”
Prior to starring on the show, the newest co-host of The View lost weight in real life, which is why she subsequently had to wear a fat suit, she explained. She also shared that her decision to lose weight came after harsh remarks she’d often get.
“When I was at my heaviest, like 185 pounds, people would be like ‘Are you pregnant? Are you pregnant?’ and I’m like, ‘No, I’m fat, get away from me.’ This goes through all of our industry, just fat-shaming in general. Not accepting of females’ bodies.”
The former Disney Channel star also joked about how different it is for women and their bodies now in the entertainment industry.
“I feel like when I lost my weight, like big-girl season came,” Symone said. “There’s so many big girls that are now famous.”
