Are they blind? Cruel haters label svelte Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Barbara Palvin 'FAT'
- The 22-year-old model has been sharing shots from her Swimsuit Issue shoot on Instagram
- Some commenters have been writing nasty things, calling her fat and saying her body is nothing special
- Barbara took to Twitter to hit back at the critics, admitting she's a different size than she was at 18 but would hardly call herself 'fat'
- Thousands of fans have rushed to the Hungarian beauty's defense
Anyone who ever feels a little insecure about their figures should take heart — because it seems that even the slimmest, most toned models aren't immune to the nasty, trolling comments of internet haters, who have nothing better to do than criticize others' bodies.
Most people would look at brunette stunner Barbara Palvin — who is one of the Rookie models in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue — and swoon over her killer curves and flat stomach.
But the 22-year-old recently revealed on Twitter than even she has to deal with rude body-shamers — who are most likely just incredibly jealous.
Say what? Model Barbara Palvin says people have called her 'fat' since her photos for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debuted
Back off, haters! The 22-year-old admitted she's not as 'skinny' as she was at 18, but she wouldn't call herself 'fat', either
Barbara posed for a slew of images for both the Swimsuit Issue itself and Sports Illustrated's Swim Daily website, modeling sexy string bikinis, cut-out monokinis, and, in a few cases, no top at all.
Yet despite her clearly sizzling sex appeal, some people have been incredibly nasty online.
'You're So fat sorry Barbara [sic],' wrote one Instagram commenter with an obvious disregard for the rules of grammar, while another seemingly delusional person wrote: 'When her body is not even that bomb but her face is so I have hope kind of.'
'She looks pregnant [to be honest],' wrote someone on another picture of Barbara lounging on the beach in a swimsuit.
Shocked by the few hateful comments, Barbara took to Twitter to slam those who couldn't keep their negative thoughts to themselves.
Speaking out: Barbara acknowledged the 'nasty' abuse in a tweet posted this week

'Wooow. I got some nasty comments about me being fat,' she wrote. 'Well I am not as skinny as I was when I was 18. But I don't consider myself fat!'
While it's great that the Hungarian model didn't let the cruel words get her down, it's unfortunately that she had to deal with them at all — and even felt the need to admit that she's not as 'skinny' as she used to be.
Yet it doesn't seem like it's the first time that Barbara has come up against comments about her weight since kicking off her career at the age of 13.
Last year, it was rumored that the reason that Victoria's Secret dropped her from their annual Fashion Show line-up was because she had gained weight, though the brand has not confirmed that that's true.

If Barbara was feeling a bit down, though, it couldn't have lasted for long, as thousands of fans took the opportunity to boost her ego and fire back with support.
'Makes me physically sick that people are calling Barbara Palvin "fat",' wrote one. 'These idealistic standards have to stop. #EatingDisorderAwarness.'
'If she's fat I don't even know what I am. There's my new #wcw right friggin' there,' wrote another.
A third expressed the thoughts of many who would kill for a figure like Barbara's, writing: 'Wishing I was as fat as @BarbaraPalvin.'
