People are pretty angry about this super skinny Topshop mannequin

“That mannequin doesn’t have a thigh gap, it has a wind tunnel.”

CLOTHING CHAIN TOPSHOP has come under fire after a photo of one of their mannequins was shared widely on Twitter.

British student Becky Hooper took the photo of an undersized Topshop model standing next to her friend, who she noted is a size 8/10. Hooper further criticised the mannequin as being “irresponsible” and guilty of promoting an unattainable body ideal.

The image has since been shared over 2,700 times and has come in for extensive criticism on Twitter.

This is not the first time Topshop has been called out for their mannequins.

As Hooper notes, Topshop have yet to issue a response to the tweet.
