Jennifer Lopez ridiculously fat-shames herself on The View

Jennifer Lopez got a lesson on body image on The View today when she criticized a photo of herself.

Lopez was discussing her natural weight fluctuations when she said she looked chunky in a selfie that flashed on the screen — and Whoopi Goldberg quickly set her straight.

“I was a little bit on the chunky side there, as you can see,” she said, pointing out the photo.

As Raven-Symoné threw her hands up the air and walked away in mock disgust, Goldberg immediately hopped out of her seat. “Do we need to show you what chunky looks like?” Goldberg exclaimed. “This a little bit on the chunky side, OK, Jennifer? That is not the chunky side.”

Lopez immediately backtracked on her body-shaming of herself, saying, “Not chunky! That’s not what I meant! I fluctuate, I fluctuate. I go up and down like seven or eight pounds all the time, you know what I mean.

“When I’m doing the show [in Las Vegas], I go down, I get slim, and then when I stop, I’m eating — and I get chunky,” she said. “Not chunky, but you feel it. For a dancer.”

But for now, her Vegas residency, All I Have, is keeping her trim. “I love to run. I still enjoy it, but right now, because of the Las Vegas show, dancing is a big part of my workout, and cardio. I do low-impact cardio because it’s so much dancing,” she said.
