Old Navy shopper's selfie after getting body-shamed goes viral


Rachel Taylor took it upon herself to take a stand against body-shaming.

According to Fox, Taylor was shopping at a Louisiana Old Navy when she overheard a mother and daughter joking about a tank top in her size and who could fit into it.

Taylor proudly snapped a selfie in the tank top and posted in on her Facebook page saying, "I ended up buying that tank top because, it turns out, I look fierce in it! Be kind. Think about others before you speak. And if someone hurts you, you have to move on."

Old Navy commented on her photo and said, "We want to celebrate your fierce style by sending you a gift card."

But the retail store is not the only one responding to her selfie, Taylor's picture has gone viral with more than 227,000 likes and 10,000 shares as of Wednesday morning.
