Bebe Rexha gets candid about body image issues

Ben Shapiro's sister Abby Shapiro believes that women who post bikini photos to Instagram is just a "free OnlyFans" - and people on social media are confused.

On Wednesday, Abby, a lifestyle YouTuber with more than 100,000 followers, took to her Twitter to share her opinion about the bikini content.

"HOT TAKE: If more than 60 per cent of your travel blogger photos on Instagram are of you in a bikini, you don't have a travel blog. You have a free only fans account," she wrote.

It caused an immediate stir on Twitter, with one person jokingly asking what it's like to live in the 19th century:

Another wanted to know how she came up with the statistic of 60 per cent :

Others wanted to know why she would sexualize bikinis and people enjoying their time frolicking in the sun:

Someone else had mixed feelings about Abby's take, noting that they believe "women should be able to wear and post whatever they want" but believing that bikini pictures are hypersexualised.

Just for giggles, on guy who often posts shirtless pics asked if he had a free OnlyFans account:

Appearing to support Abby's opinion, her brother Ben also retweeted the post, presumably agreeing with her stance.

The conservative political commentator and editor emeritus for the Daily Wire hasn't held back from his opinions about many things, including women and traditions.

In August 2020, when Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's song "WAP" came out, which essentially an upbeat song mainly geared towards women's empowerment, Shapiro referred to the "bucket and a mop" lyric and said that the women involved should get the "medical care they require".

"As I also discussed on the show, my only real concern is that the women involved -- who apparently require a "bucket and a mop" -- get the medical care they require. My doctor wife's differential diagnosis: bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection, or trichomonis," he wrote, in part.

Elsewhere, in July 2019, Shapiro made the claim that a woman cannot possibly play the role of 007 in a James Bond movie because it would not "satisfy male wish fulfilment".
