Ashanti called working with the First Lady “inspiring,” and says she hopes the campaign helps inspire young people to lead healthier lives.
Ashanti recently found herself on the receiving end of a bit of body shaming after posting photos of herself in a bathing suit on Instagram.
After being called “fat” and a “hypocrite,” Ashanti admonished her detractors, saying the “Lets Move” campaign isn’t about shaming overweight children or adults in general, but rather a way to bring attention to healthier lifestyle choices we can all make to live longer, healthier lives.
As for being called fat, Ashanti says such comments just roll off her back. “I do have a mirror and my mirror tells me I look just fine as I am.”
