Paige Spiranac ‘Extremely Body Shamed’ After Throwing First Pitch At Brewers Game


Paige Spiranac ‘Extremely Body Shamed’ After Throwing First Pitch At Brewers Game

Spiranac won’t tolerate being body-shamed.

Golf Influencer Paige Spiranac has chosen to address being extremely body-shamed after throwing the first pitch at the Yankees-Brewers game in Milwaukee. Just last month, she had to hit back at most of her male followers who called her fat in the comments of an Instagram post that featured her posing on a golf course in a short pink onesie

The 29-Year-Old also sported Yelich’s No. 22 on the back of her Jersey. 

In her YouTube video titled “Body Shaming & Life Online, Do I Deserve It? Spiranac said of cruel remarks: “Not just body [shamed] BUT my appearances too, like my face and everything. In Milwaukee, people were like, ‘she gained weight; this is what she looks like with no filters. It was insane. People were like; you don’t look like yourself.”

She added: “But, here’s the thing. When I shoot, I obviously pick the best pictures. I have great lighting. There’s a lot that goes into getting a nice picture.”

With comments about her body, the 2022 Maxim Hot 100 Cover star had in January 2021 aired her frustrations about being told she looks too fat, too skinny, too plastic, too old, wearing too much makeup, not enough makeup, b**bs too big, b*tt not big enough, too pale, hair too blonde, not blonde enough all in one day. At the time, she tweeted: “Guy’s it’s not a Build-a-Bear workshop over here. Calm it down.” 

Of the comments from the Yankees-Brewers game, the influencer said she thinks the increased attention she’s received resulted from her being named Maxim’s Sexiest Woman Alive. 

She continued: “And so when you’re at a stadium that has severe overhead lighting, fluorescent overhead lighting, you’re just not going to look your best. And so I have just felt this immense pressure to look perfect all the time. And that is humanly impossible. It is seriously so difficult to do that. No one can do that. Even the most beautiful women in the world don’t look a certain way.” 

Spiranac claimed she feels a lot of pressure to live up to her title of ‘Maxim’s Sexiest Woman Alive.” 

“That is quite a title and I’ve felt a lot of pressure to live up to that title. So I even think that I have been more critical of my self-appearance and always trying to put out the best possible picture and doing everything I can to always present and look my best. And that takes a toll on you.” When Spiranac took to Instagram to share that her male followers called her FAT, she revealed she had to delete many comments, which she rarely does.

The influencer said at the time: “I know my body is a big part of my brand and that comes with a territory, but it’s hard to maintain weight all the time for year after years. I have to work very hard in the gym and with diet.”

“It doesn’t come naturally to me. It can be defeating when people call out my body insecurities. Would love to start sharing more of my fitness plan and what I eat with you all because I’m sure a lot of you feel a similar body pressure. I used to work out to look good, but now I’m trying to work out to feel food. Changing my mentality around, working out to make it a more positive experience.”

However, the former pro golfer has recently posted a cheeky video flaunting her athletic figure in underwear when bending over to tee up her ball. 

In the post, she promoted the brand club champion, which builds and fits clubs on a personalized level. FYI, Spiranac’s career officially kicked off in 2015 when she won the 100th Colorado Women’s Golf Association Match Play Championship, finishing nine under par. She gained 100K followers overnight and was overwhelmed with endorsement offers from golf and fashion labels.
