Rosie Mercado Gets Death Threats for Losing Weight
According to plus size model Rosie Mercado, a few people didn't appreciate her recent weight loss of 240 pounds. When TMZ ran into Mercado at LAX last week, the cameraman asked her how other people reacted to her weight loss. She claimed most backed her decision, but received negative feedback from unlikely sources: "I got hate mail...Not so much from the other models, just fans that hated on me. They told me to go jump off a bridge and kill myself for losing weight. Fat activists, there you go. Yeah fat activists, they just hated the thought I was really public about my weight loss and I was losing weight." It's hard to believe people who once supported Mercado's career now wish bodily harm on her for losing weight. Then again, weight loss effects everyone differently.
