In Horrible News of the Day, a movement called "Operation Harpoon" has gone viral for their grossly inappropriate images in which plus-size celebs (and, perhaps even more grossly, non-celebs) are photoshopped to make them appear thin. 

While their Facebook pagehttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png has been removed, their Tumblr offershttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png the following "mission statement":

"This
is a page dedicated to showing both sides of modern day beautyhttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png.In
current societal fashion, a recent trending surge of "pro-obesity"
and "fat acceptance" have paved the way for many people to renounce exercisehttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png and personal healthcarehttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png in general. This page aims to only show
that being skinny is okay as well! Skinny-shaming is not okay :)."

Look, of course skinny-shaming isn't okay, because allwomen are beautiful. But to actually transform someone's body so it appears slimmer—and then celebrating that completely non-existent but "better" look—is ignorance in its purest, most heinous form.
