'Is This Ass Too Flat?' The Conversation That Needs to Not Happen (PHOTO)

'Is This Ass Too Flat?' The Conversation That Needs to Not Happen (PHOTO)

In the latest example of Internet fodder that just shouldn't exist, TMZ posted a minute-long video last week of Italian model and actress Olga Kent in a bikini with the infuriating headline, "Hot Italian Model WHAT A FLAT ASS." The purpose of the post? You guessed it—a discussion about whether this woman's bum was too flat. Seriously?

TMZ wrote that its newsroom was "divided" over the question: "Some people think it's way too flat and bony ... others think it's absolutely flawless. So, we gotta ask," the story reads. To put it simply: No, you don't. 

While it is a sad truth that objectifying women's bodies happens all the time, this post and subsequent broadcast moment were especially sad. It seemed just as unsettling as body-shaming plus-size women. It's officially 2014—can this be the year we stop doing this to women? Please?
