It's hard for ordinary people to imagine that Rolene Strauss has ever been body shamed but she has. 

The former Miss World title holder, Rolene Strauss opened up about being body-shamed, explaining that during her reign as Miss South Africa she was often on the receiving end of nasty comments about her weight.

She shared a YouTube video where she read out some of the comments that were made about her weight and body.

"She has always been a plus-sized beauty. However, she used to be fit, yet curvaceous. Now she's just getting out of proportion for pageant purposes."
