Plus-size model Tess Holliday’s appearance on the October cover of Cosmopolitan UK has been looked at as a step forward for body positivity but some think otherwise.

The model shared a preview of the cover on her social media accounts, writing to her followers, “Phew, I’m literally a COSMO GIRL!! Can’t believe I’m saying that.”

She continued: “Thank you @CosmopolitanUK for this incredible opportunity. If I saw a body like mine on this magazine when I was a young girl, it would have changed my life.”

Others took to Twitter to argue that Holliday’s cover “normalizes obesity” and shouldn’t be celebrated.

British TV personality Piers Morgan joined the conversation and posted Holliday’s cover to his Instagram account.

“As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo. Apparently, we’re supposed to view it as a ‘huge step forward for body positivity.’ What a load of old baloney. This cover is just as dangerous and misguided as celebrating size zero models,” Morgan wrote.
