Ricky Dillon Addresses Body Shaming On Purposeful Weight Gain

Ricky Dillon Addresses Body Shaming On Purposeful Weight Gain

Ricky Dillon has gained 50 pounds recently and now he is opening up about the gain.

The 25-year-old YouTube star posted a new video on Tuesday (December 26) to talk about his weight gain and address the issue of body shaming.

“I don’t usually do videos on serious topics but I think it’s important to every once in a while,” he says in the beginning. “Yes, my title is pretty dramatic and it’s not click bait. I have gained 50 pounds this year, most of it towards the end of the year, recently. And first of all, it’s been on purpose.”

“I am really into health and fitness, and I have kind of looked and been the same for like 10 years,” he continued. “I just wanted to switch things up and I work with a really great personal trainer. He has pushed me crazy hard. But basically I have purposefully been gaining weight to build muscle, to build mass. It’s called bulking.”

“[Some comments] have been really nice… But there’s a lot they are kind of rude and unneccessary,” Ricky said. “There are some that are like, ‘Wow, Ricky is getting really fat.’ ‘Ricky has gained so much weight, he looks horrible now.’ ‘Ricky suddenly looks 10 years older.’”

Since releasing the video, Ricky has received a ton of positive feedback for standing up and raising awareness on body shaming. Watch his video below…
