Tess Holliday is not your typical model. She's 5-foot-3, plus sized, covered in tattoos, and is one of the most recognizable figures in the body positive movement.

Her latest accomplishment? Gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan UK.

Holliday's Cosmo cover is monumental for the body positive movement. She stated in a tweet, "If I saw a body like mine on this magazine when I was a young girl, it would have changed my life."

Though many of Holliday's fans are inspired by her fight for inclusive representation in the modeling and fashion industry, unfortunately, there were many Twitter users who had some cruel things to say about her magazine cover.

At the end of the day, Holliday doesn't have time for the haters because she's too busy being fabulous.

She clapped back at the trolls by telling them to "worry about what horrible people [they] are by whining about how [her] being on the cover of a glossy magazine impacts [their] small minded life."

What do you think: are plus-size models like Tess Holliday promoting obesity or body positivity? Sound off in the comments!
