Gina Rodriguez's Body-Positive Message to a Fan on Twitter

Gina Rodriguez Reminds Us Why She's a Body-Positive Role Model With 1 Twitter Exchange

Gina Rodriguez is known for her body positivity. The Jane the Virgin star has been super open about her battle with Hashimoto's disease, a thyroid disorder, and its effect on her weight, but she doesn't let it get her down. She's confident. She's fierce. And she's spreading that message of self-love like wildfire with her fans on social media.

Enter her recent Twitter exchange with a fan who loved her Naeem Khan dress at the Golden Globes (same). Twitter user babie2006 commented that she wanted a similar tinsel-inspired number but felt like she'd need to "lose weight to rock it like you girl."

Gina wasn't having any of that self-doubt and responded with the most epic, uplifting words of encouragement, ultimately reminding us why she's a body-positive role model. Read what she had to say below.


Needless to say, Gina totally made this fan's day.
