A year ago a news release from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, featured an article penned by one of our own graduate students, Amanda Ravary. The news blurb starts out:
“Picture the last time you walked through your local grocery store check-out line or scrolled through your social media newsfeed. One thing that you likely encountered is the pop cultural phenomenon of celebrity fat-shaming—that is, mocking or critical comments about weight. These critical messages about weight—especially a woman’s weight—are difficult to avoid…Can these fleeting, casual comments influence people’s private attitudes about body weight?”
