Actress Danielle Brooks, having just nabbed a role in the new Lane Bryant #ImNoAngel campaign, is at the top of her game. And she wants to help lift other women up there, too.
The Internet has been up in arms over the reported banning of the hashtag ‘curvy’ by Instagram. And yes, like #nipples and the aubergine emoji before it, #curvy has indeed been put on the restricted list. News outlets and users have complained that though #curvy has been banned, #thin, #skinny, #fat and other body-related words are still fine - even negative ones (#larda*** and #fat**** are dandy, apparently). The suggestion is that thought Instagram is trying to reduce body shaming, it isn’t doing a particularly good job by banning a word many embrace as body-postive.
