Superdrug Celebrity Weight Scales Backlash

30th January 2014 in Uncategorised - 2 Comments - 2 min read
Hey Beauties 
I dont usually blog about these things but i had to give my opinion on this as i think the media is to blame for a lot of problems these days.
Superdrug tweeted today about these “Celebrity Weight Scales” where you could weigh yourself and see what weight you are in relation to celebrity.Superdrug said that this was to take away the stigma of weight and get more people talking but i think its such a bad idea because you should never compare yourself to another celebrity, Not to mention that there are young teens out there wanting to look like these stars and the fact they basically have a guide to looking like Cheryl Cole or Beyonce is horrible
I honestly dont know why the people at Superdrug thought this would be a good idea because the psychological repercussions could be really bad imagine someone having body issues already and finding out that youre 3 celebrites away from who you love it could lead to an even bigger rise in eating disorders in the UK which are already at an all time high.
Cheryl Cole tweeted that she didnt even want to be involved in this whole thing so that just shows you how controversial this whole thing is
Although superdrug did issue a statement about the outcry and backlash about the scales but there was no apology or even non apology, i think its really irresponsible not to even own up to mistakes that they have made now and also in the past for previous fat/weight shaming
What do you think of this situation?
Was just a PR stunt to get people talking?
