Jillian Michaels, who is known for her strong and sometimes unpopular opinion, is a firm believer in that political correctness in the health world has crossed a line.
The 45-year-old trainer believes the body positivity movement has improved the lives of those who would get “body shamed or fat shamed” but she is worried about the health implications.
“I think we’re politically correct to the point of endangering people,” Michaels told Women’s Health U.K. revealed in their Jan./Feb. issue.
“Yes, we want to be inclusive of everyone, everyone comes in all different shapes and sizes. That nobody should ever be body shamed or fat shamed or excluded and that everyone is equally deserving and should feel equally valuable.”
But Michaels argues that acceptance has crossed a line.
“Obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized,” she said. “But we’ve become so politically correct that no one wants to say it.”
