Grant Gustin Fires Back At Body Shamers After New ‘The Flash’ Suit Photo Leaks Online

Actor and star of CW’s The Flash Grant Gustin wasn’t putting up with any nonsense when it came to his body. Gustin took to Instagram to shut down talk about his lean physique and a recently leaked photo of the new Flash costume.

In his post he said:

I’ve had 20+ years of kids and adults telling me or my parents I was too thin. I’ve had my own journey of accepting it. But there’s a double standard where it’s ok to talk s— about a dudes (sic) body.

The leaked photo has some people scratching their heads over what there was to criticize.

But some folks are saying it started with this Instagram post. 

People posted comments saying they thought the suit made Gustin look too skinny. 

In all fairness, this writer had to dig for quite some time to find the above three comments.

Still, fans appreciated Gustin being willing to talk about the “double standard” of body shaming. 

Others didn’t rush to take up Gustin’s cause, thinking the actor should check his privilege before speaking out. 

Gustin has since deleted his Twitter account.
