Tess Holliday Boycotts Uber After Claiming a Driver Body-Shamed Her: ”I’m Fat. I Also Have a Fat Wallet”

Tess Holliday has revealed she will no longer use Uber’s services.

The plus-size model says she was body-shamed by a driver who picked her up on Tuesday and told her she was not healthy because of her weight. Holliday took to Instagram to explain the story.

“Hey @uber I don’t pay more to use your ‘black car’ service to be told that there’s no way I could possibly be healthy because I’m fat & then questioning it,” she wrote. “No one should have to tolerate this at any level of the services you offer. I’m fat. I also have a fat wallet & will no longer be using your services. Ever. Also after I told him I was healthy he turned the radio off & changed the subject. #putmymoneywheremymouthis #uberdriver #uber.”

Any thoughts?
