TikToker slams haters claiming her husband is too fit for her: 'Heartbreaking'
A TikToker has hit out at the haters after a video of hers went viral for all the wrong reasons.
Alicia Mccarvell has 5.5 million followers on the app where she shares content around body positivity as well as other videos of her life.
However, after sharing one video with her high school sweetheart and husband Scott Mccarvell where the pair are in towels after a shower and then after a transition are dressed up for a wedding, Alicia noticed a horrible trend.
The video, which has been over 43.4 million times, has been targeted by trolls with Alicia telling Yahoo Life, "I believe it went viral because of the contrast in my husband and I's body sizes."
"The conversation in the comment section was about my husband and I's bodies, our worth and me being fat."

"Umm he wants your money," one comment reads, while another said, "Love is definitely blind."
Others cruelly joked that he was with her for a Green Card, while some wrote that he should be dating them.
"These comments are heartbreaking," one commenter wrote. "How nasty of a spirit must you have to say such mean things to people???"
"These comments just show how many ppl base their relationship choice off of looks," another said. "Maybe y’all would be happier if u didn’t."
"I see two stunning people in love with each other and themselves and IM LIVING FOR IT," a third said.
In another video that has been viewed over 26 million times, Alicia spoke about the viral TikTok, saying, "I posted a simple transition video of me and my husband going from towels to dressed up together. This is not unlike what all kinds of different couples do on this app. My video went viral and I know we all know why.
"It's because by beauty standards, we don't make sense, the world looks at us and immediately values Scott more than me. And since we don't add up, people try to add things to my side of the equation to make it make sense by saying things like, 'Oh, she must not have been fat when they met' or 'Oh, she's got to be rich.'
"Or they try to decrease his side of the equation by saying things like, 'He must be gay', or 'He fetishes fat women.' We've been made to believe that somebody who is physically fit, like Scott, could never in a million years be in love with or compatible with a fat woman. And that's solely because the world has literally taught us that we have to value our worth on our bodies."
She then shared that a woman slid into Scott's DMs and told him that he should be with someone that looks like her.
"She was thin and by beauty standards, a 10 out of 10," Alicia shared. "Here's the thing though, me telling myself for the majority of our relationship that I'm not worthy of his love because of my body is the exact same thing as this thin woman telling him that she is worthy of his because of her body. I've undervalued myself, and she is overvaluing herself. We've both been made to believe that our value lies in our body."
Alicia adds that she's surprised people before by saying she doesn't get jealous when women slide into Scott's DMs, saying he values other things above a certain body type.
"He values my humour and my commitment and my love and my caring heart and none of these things that he values about me change if my body changes," she explained.
"It's not too often that videos of substance go viral, and I'm feeling pretty proud that this response video has been so widely received," Alicia told Yahoo Life. "I hope it helps people challenge the way they view others and most important how they place their own value. When you value yourself for who you are, and not how you look, your life changes for the better. I promise."
