A Facebook user heading the page "Project Harpoon" has come under scanner for Photoshopping images of plus-sized models to make them look slim.
Tess Holliday, a well-known plus-size model, asked her fans to boycott the Facebook page where many of her pictures have been edited to make her appear skinny.
"It's abominable that this [Facebook page] is using my image without permission to promote themselves," Holliday told E! News.
The model is also furious because her online campaign, Eff Your Beauty Standards, tells women to accept their bodies no matter what shape they are, but Project Harpoon is doing just the opposite.
"This kind of hit piece is exactly why I started #effyourbeautystandards. I am asking my followers to boycott this [page] and any others like it. Loving yourself is the most powerful message we all need to stand behind,"she added.
The name Harpoon suggests a weapon used to kill whales. “A collaborative art project open to interpretation. #InnerBeauty #ThinnerBeauty #SkinnyAcceptance,” writes the description of this page.
The Facebook page has also Photoshopped images of many celebrities such as Meghan Trainor, Melissa McCarthy and Rebel Wilson.
Nick Baskins, who created the Facebook page, also has a Tumblr blog, where several pictures of women are edited to make them look skinnier. The user writes that the blog is “dedicated to showing both sides of modern day beauty.” The user is not happy that women have accepted being fat and says that many people have given up exercise because of the “pro-obesity” trend.
"Our intention is not to harm, oppress, or 'trigger' anyone … We get dozens of messages a day talking about how our photos have inspired them to go to the gym and maintain a better lifestyle," Baskins told People in an interview.
