Plus Size Model Tess Holliday Declares Black Men Love Her

We were all for the success of plus sized phenomenon Tess Holliday — who has been rocking headlines all around the world for being the barrier breaking big gul who got a major modeling contract despite her size 28 22 frame… but then she had to go racial with it.

In a revealing interview with The Guardian, Holliday rubbed us the wrong way when she declared herself black male kryptonite:

We’re in a cafe, finally sitting down after a six-hour shoot that’s had Holliday traipsing blocks in oppressive heat and then a rainstorm. Throughout, she’s been a hilarious corrective to the notion of models as mute and biddable clotheshorses. At one point, an African American guy, middle-aged, said something appreciative as he walked by. “What do guys think they’ll achieve by yelling something?” she asked, shifting her weight and adjusting the cape primly. “They’re like: ‘She’ll love this, I’ll definitely get her number.’” A pause, and then she added, with some satisfaction, “I do admit that black men love me. I always forget that, and then I come to a black neighbourhood and I remember.” And no one quite knew what to say.

Is it just us or is Heavy T feelin’ herself a bit too much? After all, she ain’t no Liris Crosse!
