Cornwall girl's Facebook post hitting back at body-shaming Superdrug staff goes viral

Superdrug has apologised to a girl from Perranporth after she posted on Facebook saying she had been body-shamed by staff for wearing shorts.

Harriet Rae was in the Truro shop earlier this week when she heard two female staff members making fun of her.

So she took to social media to hit back at them saying "in response to your comments I send back some love!"

She posted:

Harriet's message has now been shared more than 50,000 on Facebook which has sparked an apology from Superdrug.

In a second post on her Facebook page Harriet said she accepted Superdrug's apology and was amazed that her post had gained so much publicity.

She said:

"I have spoken to the lovely people at Superdrug Head Office today (25.7.16), who apologised for what happened in the Truro Store on Saturday."

"They have also said that my post will be used in training in the future to make sure it doesn't happen again. Thank you to everyone who shared the post, sent friend requests and private messages.""I never imagined it would gain so much publicity and it has definitely shown me how powerful social media can be. Lots of Love ?
