Famous Swedish model, Arvida Byström said she was receiving rape threats after posting a photograph with unshaven legs.
The 26-year-old model is well known for posing with her body hair on show and has also posted pictures online displaying her cellulite.
“Me being such an abled, white, cis body with its only nonconforming feature being a lil leg hair,” she said. “Literally I’ve been getting rape threats in my DM inbox.”
“I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to not possess all these privileges and try to exist in the world.
“Sending love and try to remember that not everybody has the same experiences being a person.”
Adidas commented on the photograph saying:
“It is something absurd to say in 2017 but she is so brave to show natural legs, you go girl!”
Adidas called her as “an artist, photographer, model and cyber sensation, known for her photography, which questions femininity and gender standards using so-called ‘girly’ aesthetics”.
