We spend some part of our day trolling the Instagram pages of a few of our favorite Jewish celebs, and we were totally taken aback by what we found in the recent postings by Bethenny Frankel. I mean, seriously, this girl is wasting away, and has anorexia written all over her tired and unhappy face.
The Instagram readers were full of good advise:

– You look so unhealthy!
– Please eat!!
Well, that last one was more an honest reaction than advice.
And this one:
– Bethenny I love you and your spirit and your energy , I mean this lovingly, please put on some weight honey., . I know the stress is probably doing it, so you have to make it a point to eat more often , force yourself a little. Xoxo
One reader was upset because she considers the above “weight shaming.”
OK, but when you make your image available to a few million followers, you should probably expect a little bit of shaming in response.
But seriously, Bethenny honey, please, eat something.
