Sharon Osbourne congratulated Adele on her massive weight loss on The View but now, people are mad about it on social media! The reason is that she suggested ‘big women’ are never truly happy!
As you can imagine, such a comment offended the fat positive community.
Users were fast to call her out for the ‘unnecessary’ comments Sharon made on the show.
It all started when she stated that ‘It was her time to lose weight, that’s all, in her journey, in her life.
This followed the singer’s post from her birthday party in which she looked slimmer than ever after having lost no less than 150 pounds!
But Sharon went on to suggest that the transformation was much more about her mental health rather than her outer appearance.
She argued that ‘When these women say they are happy in their body, I do not believe them. My body was really, really big. But I was not happy. Sure on the surface, but just at night in bed alone, I was really unhappy. [Adele] must have felt, you know what, I’m going to try and lose weight for wherever reason — health, I am sure. She did not do it for anyone else but herself. And so, everyone should be happy for her.
@ Sharon osbourne why is it so hard for you to believe that you can be fat AND happy? Adele shouldn’t be degraded to merely a body, she is not a before and after for everyone to pick a part pic.twitter.com/tWJr3zwPMV

@MrsSOsbourne that is literally solely because women like you make statements like this and make them feel like they shouldn’t be. Just because YOU weren’t happy in your bigger body doesn’t mean other women can’t be.

Well, unfortunately not everyone was and many were also even less happy with Sharon’s statement!
One fan tweeted in response ‘That is solely because women like you make statements like this and make them feel like they should not be [happy]. Just because YOU were not happy in your bigger body does not mean other women cannot be.’
Another person similarly argued that: ‘Adele lost weight for her OWN reasons. Don’t try to apply your slighted logic to all women that they have weight they need to lose. Sit down, Sharon. This comment was unnecessary.’
