Her Dance Video Has Over 2M Views and Counting
Whitney Way Thore is dancing away bullying, one awesome dance step at a time.
"And you can dance, for inspiration..."
Such is the case of Whitney Way Thore, a North Carolina radio producer who gained 200 pounds after being diagnosed with Polcystic Ovarian Syndrome. She founded the No Body Shame Campaign after being victim of online bullying due to her condition. "There was a whoooole lotta fat-shaming going on! I started blogging really just for therapy," she said.
Whitney followed up with her collection of viral videos called "A Fat Girl Dancing," where the former dance student gets her groove on to the tunes of artists such as Robin Thicke, The Pussycat Dolls, and Jason Derulo. The videos, one of which has over 2 million YouTube views and counting, have provided further visibility to Thore's campaign; you can watch all of them here and help spread the word.
