Tennis star Genie Bouchard is among the most-followed athletes in her sport, with more than 2 million followers on Instagram.
Bouchard recently faced some criticism for one of her posts, though.
The 25-year-old Canadian native posted a photo of her playing tennis with the following caption:
“why do my arms stay mad skinny but my stomach gets so fat??” she wrote.
Bouchard, who’s posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, is facing some criticism for that caption.
“You are not in the least bit fat as I suspect you are actually well aware of,” one person wrote. “Irresponsible thing to put on Instagram when so many young women will now be comparing themselves to an image you’ve deemed ‘fat.’ People should engage their brain before posting rubbish like this, think of the consequences.”
Another added: “What kind of role model are you supposed to be for not just woman but young woman. You are a Canadian disgrace. Just terrible.”
Bouchard didn’t seem bothered by the criticism, posting a “haters” message on her Instagram Story following the post.
