Zyahna Bryant, a Black Lives Matter activist, is making waves for shining a light on plus-size women. After being accused of getting a white student expelled from her school, Bryant has partnered with Dove for a “fat liberation” campaign, according to the NY Post.
In her Instagram video, Bryant discussed the stigma of being overweight and talked about centering the voices of those in fat bodies. Her activism has been praised by many, but her new partnership has also drawn some criticism.
Bryant worked with the school to get white student Morgan Bettinger expelled over alleged remarks referring to a BLM activist, but Bryant admitted to having “misheard” her. As a result, Dove has faced threats of a boycott from angry washers.
One user posted a picture of several bars of Dove soap in the garbage, saying that they will never buy Dove products again. Others have chimed in on the issue, calling it “messed up” and even the platform’s owner, Elon Musk, had something to say.
Despite this, Bryant is doing her part to ensure that plus-size women are seen and heard. She is a leader in her community, and her partnership with Dove is an important step towards fat liberation.
