Arnold Schwarzenegger clapped back at a troll who body-shamed him on social media. The troll, who goes by the handle @Body_Shaming_Troll, commented on a photo of Schwarzenegger, saying, “You’re looking a little soft, Arnie.”
Schwarzenegger responded by posting a photo of himself flexing his muscles, with the caption, “I’m not soft, I’m just cultivating mass.” He then went on to say, “I’m 74 years old and I can still do this. What’s your excuse?”
Schwarzenegger’s response was met with praise from his fans, who applauded him for standing up to the troll and for promoting body positivity.
This is not the first time that Schwarzenegger has been body-shamed. In 2019, he was criticized for his appearance in the film Terminator: Dark Fate. However, Schwarzenegger has always been open about his struggles with body image, and he has used his platform to promote body positivity and to encourage people to love themselves for who they are.
Schwarzenegger’s response to the troll is a reminder that body-shaming is never acceptable. It is important to remember that everyone’s body is different, and that there is no one “right” way to look. We should all be accepting of our bodies, and we should never let anyone make us feel bad about ourselves.
