In a time where WE KNOW all about the negative knock-on effect social media can have, this is pretty shocking stuff.

Dubai FitFam is an Instagram account which regularly shares, you guessed it, images of various fitness ‘fluencers based in Dubai.

But an image with a ‘gram poll shared on its feed, which has since been removed, grabbed attention for all the wrong reasons. The pic showed a prominent Dubai ‘fitfluencer, Danae Mercer on the beach with a poll covering her face asking Dubai to vote…

WISE or LAZY?

Danae spotted the story, and was disgusted… as you’d expect

She shared her thoughts in the follow-up story

“And then to hashtag it body positivity? How dare you. Who handles this account. I hope instead of worrying so much about women that are campaigning around accepting different bodies of different shapes, you spend a bit of time considering the message you’re sending out.”

“As for the lazy question, I train hard most days. I am proud of who I am”

The post has since been removed

Dubai FitFam acknowledged the removal of the post. The account posted to its 55k followers to announce the snap was only removed after bullying accusations were reported to Instagram by users.

However, the account has stood its ground stating the page did not express its opinion on the subject and adding that the page continues to support freedom of opinions.

Danae praised the incredible, supportive Dubai fitness community amid the drama

Danae is a strong-supporter of body-positivity, acceptance and self love

And she’s certainly not afraid to share images of what traditional-beauty standards deemed as flaws

Spread love, not hate!
