Sara Milliken has been announced as the first plus-sized Miss Alabama, which has sparked much criticism online.

“No matter what your body looks like, no matter where you come from, you can do anything you set your mind to,” Milliken stated, according to WKRG, very proud of her win.

However, not everyone was as thrilled and proud of this win as she was.

“Calling her beautiful is fine and good that’s all in the eye of the beholder,” one Facebook user commented, according to the article. “But let’s be honest with ourselves…she’s extremely unhealthy and this is a slap in the face to the young girls who have worked hard and maintained a diet to actually be a beauty queen.”

While some made hurtful comments regarding her weight, others were quick to point out that many of these critiques are not personal. Simply, they don’t want a public figure advocating obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle. 

“The winner of Miss Alabama. She promotes inclusivity and representation of all bodies,” Libs of TikTok commented in a post on X. “We need to stop glorifying obesity. Obesity isn’t healthy.” 

It is one thing to love and respect your body, it is a completely different thing to idolize harmful habits or lifestyles.
