The former “View” co-host took to Twitter to comment on “pundits and big-platform comedians” who spend too much “time and energy talking about it.”
Meghan McCain hears you talk about her, and she’s almost had enough of it. In particular, the former “View” co-host slammed “pundits and comedians” who make it a point to talk about her body.
“Teenage girls are literally killing themselves over our toxic culture of female bodies,” she tweeted as part of a larger statement about what she says she has experienced in public space.
Meghan McCain responds to critics saying she paints herself as a ‘victim’
“It continues to be bizarre to me, so many experts and comedians with big platforms are so triggered by my body and spend so much time and energy talking about it,” she tweeted. “And there are more people.”
Initially, a longer Twitter thread, according to People, McCain seems to have removed most of her comments. Per outlet, McCain initially elaborated a little more on her own experiences with body shaming and how it affected her personally.
“I thank God I never ended up with an eating disorder or even worse considering the amount of shit I’ve experienced in public since I was 20,” she had initially remarked before her comment about teenage girls, according to the business.
She then followed the remaining line with, “I’m one of the lucky ones. But is there any thought on how it might affect influential young women and fans?”

The talk show host elaborated even more, according to People, adding: “There’s a mental health crisis ravaging teenage girls right now – and when you call me overweight, or do ‘comic’ sketches, think about what message it’s sending them, not me.”
She further stated, according to the magazine, that she does not let negative comments about her body affect her, she also has a daughter to consider, “and the poison that so many of you post about how women should look is A CRISIS that kills American women, literally. “
McCain did not specifically refer to any comedians or experts who have talked about her body, but it is also not the first time she has commented on scrutiny, she has experienced about her body, in particular, and women endure daily in general.

She even supported Jonah Hill last October, who spoke of the constant comment his own body has received. His major point was that for a person who has a problematic relationship with their body, even fans’ attempts to be positive to see him lose weight, for example, can have a negative triggering effect.
Even without further details on what triggered this response from her today, McCain’s feelings were met with widespread support online, even from those who made it a point to stress that they may disagree with her politically or ideologically. At least on this one thing, it seems that most people can agree that it is inappropriate and should stop.
