Aussie pop duo The Veronicas have dealt with criticism regarding their weight for the bulk of their music career and after uploading a new professional pic to Facebook this week, the negative comments started streaming in thick and fast.
Many of them were shaming the sisters for being underweight and one, in particular, begged them to eat a cheeseburger, with the commenter even offering to pay for their food. The Veronicas swiftly responded, posting a thorough and very specific shopping list that would cover just one day’s worth of shopping and eating for the pair.
The commenter hasn’t responded as of yet, despite the fact that the girls made it very clear they expected a prompt shopping delivery, and didn’t want to be made to wait.
Another Facebook commenter claimed that their skinny bodies promote bad health, and also begged them to eat some food. The Veronica’s replied: “You are a big part of the problem with a mentality like that.”
The girls have dealt with these sorts of criticisms before, one in particular last year that accused the sisters of encouraging eating disorders in young women and girls. Jessica was driven to respond to this with an open letter on Facebook.
