Meghan McCain got into a heated Twitter exchange on October 1. The View host clapped back at a fat-shaming troll who tried to harass her over her weight.

The Twitter user, who’s since deleted the message, wrote alongside a photo of Meghan, 34, “How many pounds ago was that profile picture? Jenny Craig, NutriSystem or Weight Watchers (WW) would endorse you without hesitation.”

Meghan was having none of it. She retweeted the message and wrote, “It’s harassment like this that can lead women to eating disorders. I am one of the lucky ones who never suffered from it. I never dieted to get a man or a job and somehow landed my dream both.” 

She added, “Hope young girls see me and know they don’t have to diet either.”

Some of her followers chimed in with support in the replies. One person wrote, “You’re one of the most beautiful women on TV — ignore these vulgar and ignorant trolls.”
