Plus-size model Ashley Graham is now being looked to as a weight loss guru for aspiring models.

That’s not a joke. She appeared on a recent episode of “Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian,” which is a show that chronicles overweight people’s journey to getting fit in 12 weeks.

On a recent episode, Ashley Graham surprised one of the participants who also wants to be a plus size model.

“Oh my gosh. Ashley Graham has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated. She’s a beacon of sexy… She’s really someone who is an inspiration,” the participant gushed.

Graham then taught her how to do a “sexy” catwalk.

I can’t be the only person who thinks this absolute nonsense. If you want to be plus sized, that’s your prerogative. It’s a free country and lots of people fought, bled and died for your right to do nothing but melt into the couch and eat Pringles every day for 80 years. But for the sake of all that is holy in this world, why is Ashley Graham being featured on a weight loss show like she’s an expert?

Isn’t the whole point of Ashley Graham to celebrate being overweight? It’s a pretty bad business move for Khloe Kardashian to let Graham within 15 feet of her studio. Khloe’s show is trying to encourage people to lose weight. Not embrace the size they came in.

This just further proves how absolutely ridiculous it is to be celebrating plus sized models when all people really want to look at is impossibly fit supermodels on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
