A plus-size woman is taking on the trolls who claimed her husband shouldn't be with her because she's bigger than him.
Alicia McCarvell, a body positive influencer from Canada, shared a cute clip to TikTok which showed her having a cuddle with her partner, Scott.
The pair have been married for 15 years but, despite this, the post led to the content creator receiving a new host of comments from social media users who claimed the relationship doesn't seem to "add up."

The video has now been viewed more than 24million times, with some people alleging he only wed Alicia for her money.
Some even claimed the influencer couldn't have been "fat" when he fell in love with her, but it's not the first time the couple have endured abuse.
Back in 2021, Alicia said people dubbed her a "sugar mama" for bagging the bodybuilder husband.
Since then more hurtful comments have emerged, and Alicia has hit back against the backlash once more.
This time she's slammed "society's trash beauty standards" together with the people who suggest that someone physically fit "could never be in love with or compatible with a fat woman".
Following the comments she posted a new video, which has since had 15m views.
In the clip, she said: "I posted a simple transition video of me and my husband going from towels to dressed up together.
"This is not unlike what all kinds of different couples do on this app.
"My video went viral, and I know we all know why. It’s because by beauty standards, we don’t make sense."
She also noted that when people spot the couple, it's common for trolls to "immediately value Scott as more than her".
Alicia continued: "Since we don't add up, people try to add things to my side of the equation to make it make sense, saying things like, 'Oh, she must not have been fat when they met', or, 'Oh, she’s got to be rich'.
"Or they try to decrease his side of the equation by saying things like, 'He must be gay,' or, 'He fetishes fat women'.
"We’ve been made to believe that somebody who is physically fit like Scott could never in a million years be in love with or compatible with a fat woman.
"And that’s solely because the world has literally taught us that we have to value our worth [based] on our bodies."
The influencer confessed her body has made her tell herself that she wasn't "worthy of his love" for "the majority of their relationship."
She also said that "thin" women regularly contact her husband via DM trying to flirt, with one having told him: "You should be with somebody who looks like me."
Alicia added: "I’m undervaluing myself and she is overvaluing herself. We have both been made to believe that our value lies in our body."
But, discussing her husband's views, she said: "how well her body fits into society's beauty standards is not on the top of his list."
"He values my humour and my commitment and my love and my caring heart," she added.
"None of these things that he values about me change if my body changes. So when someone slides into his DMs leading with their body first, he's asking, 'But what else?'
"Because he, like I, know that people's values don't lie in how well their bodies fit into society's trash beauty standards.
"And I get it, if this is the way you think, it’s the way you’ve been taught. However, it is your responsibility to unlearn it."
Even though she's since received a host of negative backlash, Alicia also gets words of encouragement from some of her followers.
One person commented: "I see two stunning people in love with each other and themselves, and I'm living for it."
Another added: "I am so sorry for the amount of hate you have to deal with. Truly unbelievable."
A third said: "You must really be unhappy in life to comment on someone else's relationship. She's beautiful inside and out."
One more wrote: "You're gorgeous and deserve to be treated like a queen."
