Body shaming takes many forms, as Ariana Grande pointed out on Instagramthe other week. And Victoria's Secret model Bridget Malcolm has spoken out about how she was skinny shamed shortly after appearing on the Victoria's Secret catwalk by nasty comments online and on her Instagram page.

Bridget took the abusive comments on, writing on Instagram: "Can we stop with the skinny shaming please? I am extremely fit and healthy, and am not in the slightest way anorexic. I have worked hard to look like this and am proud of my body. I may not be the curviest, but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do"

She added: "Maybe today take a look inside yourself and wonder why you feel the need to shame strangers over the Internet about their bodies. Peace and love to you all; let's change the conversation."

Bridget's comments come as another Victoria's Secret Angel spoke out after being asked about what she's going to eat after the show by a* TMZ* reporter. Instead of smiling glibly and answering "pizza!" or "a huge bowl of ice cream!", she shut the reporter down and replied that she wasn't going to answer the question because "You'll make me look like an idiot."

"Yah, but it [will] seem like I'm starving myself,' she added, 'and can't wait for the show to end, to eat"
