Victims of grossophobia after climbing the steps in Cannes
< /p> UPDATE DAY
Several young women who have climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals as part of the Cannes Film Festival have been victims of grossophobic remarks on social networks in the last few days.
The French influencer, Léna Situations, was notably insulted about the size of her thighs.
The 25-year-old wore a Vivienne Westwood outfit for the climb of the steps of The Idol, but she received a torrent of insulting messages from trolls.

If all these comments, and many others quoted by Léna Situations in her Instagram Story, particularly touched her, it is because, for once, the star “felt good”.
“I've always been more or less comfortable with my body…until the last few months. I gained weight I am aware of it, my morphology has changed I am aware of it, but the internet realized it before me and would like to share it. Two years ago I made the choice to no longer use a filter in order to mount an honest and unmodified image, something real. I try to make my platforms a place where I feel confident enough to share with 4 million people my facets with which I am not 100% at peace. I try to speak only to a community which is also in this desire to send positive and live the moments of life fully”, explains Léna Mahfouf, of her real name.
She then denounced the diktats and remarks on social networks.
“Since young people, we have been projected so much an ideal body, an ideal style that as soon as I no longer fit into my 36 I receive 'you eat well in the canteen' or 'congratulations on the baby'”, she said. added.
A young actress also caught the wrath of some Internet users at the end of the week, Anna Biolay, 20.
