I definitely hear the critique. To be honest, it just wasn’t a thought we had — we obviously weren’t saying, “We want to have one specific type of person in the video.” We just made the video, and there wasn’t a ton of thought put behind that.

There was this article … and they were talking about [the lack of body diversity], and in the same sentence, this person said “Eat something, you stupid twinks.” That really bummed me out to read that — because I’ve had my own insecurities with my body image.

I think that everyone’s body is as beautiful as it is, including my own, and it just sucks to see people talking about other people’s bodies.
