Loey Lane describes herself as a “plus-size fashion vlogger,” and she’s currently riding high with more than 600,000 subscribers on YouTube and over 235,000 followers on Instagram. But that’s also apparently made her a target of online critics and body shamers, who have called Lane everything from “disgusting” to a “fatty.” In 2015, though, Lane decided to fight back against the haters in the most awesome way.
Lane started her own YouTube channel in February 2013, and she posts frequent videos on all things fashion, including clips on makeup trends, tutorials, fashion buys and outfit ideas. In total, her videos have had almost 50 million views.
But in 2015 Lane reviewed her most-watched clips from her channel and discovered that in all of her top-ten videos she was wearing a swimsuit. And, upon further investigation, it seemed that not everybody was watching these video to admire her.
