Model Celebrates Her Stretch Marks After Publication Bullies Her

"You are a warrior, you created a life inside of you."

Recently, model Robyn Lawley was attacked online after a publication made false claims about her stretch marks.

According to Lawley, when she was seven months pregnant, "An interview from a very honest... conversation... was manipulated and taken apart so heartlessly by a UK publication gossip page."

The model, who has made strides for women and body positivity as a plus size model, was then attacked by almost 500 commenters, while the author made no efforts to print the correct story.

They titled the story, "Robyn considers abortion to avoid stretch marks."

Even when she became nervous about her baby's health due to the stress of the comments, the author and publication still refused to print the correct story.

However, Lawley tried to remain as positive as possible and went into detail about why she is proud of her body.

She said in her Facebook post, "As for my stretch marks I knew they were coming and as they're fading into white (like all my others) I thought I might capture them. Because they are some bad ass ‪#‎tigerstripes‬ :) And I earned them."

She also provided a reminder for women, saying, "We put an unbelievable amount of ridiculous time consuming pressure on women to care so much about their flaws they forget how truly beautiful they (you) are today."

Eventually, the publication pulled the story after Lawley's words were finally heard.

You can read her full post below, where she also addresses the issue of women's rights in political discourse.
