A massive mound of reeking flesh that has gone unwashed for over thirty years named Cecil Belknap of Jasper, Florida recently posted his image to Facebook with an emotional caption reading: "This 900 lb man covered in cow manure hasn't bathed in three decades. Like this post to let him know he's beautiful!" The image shows Mr. Belknap dressed in nothing but overalls and covered in filth as he smiles through two and a half teeth.
The post went viral on the social network over the span of three days and has become a sensation not only on Facebook but also on Twitter and Instagram, garnering tens of thousands of likes and shares. Body shaming activists have called the image a breakthrough in generating a conversation about what makes each person uniquely beautiful, no matter their size or how many grams of shit they are plastered in.
"Cecil has demonstrated his bravery and is changing the way we see each other and ourselves," said Demi Lovato while taking a break from recording her new album to enjoy some unspecified opioids. "He is a true hero helping to make the world a safe space for all."
At the time of publication, Mr. Belknap was revelling in his newfound online fame by making several public appearances to discuss body shaming and promising that for his next image-based campaign he was going to eat a rotten snapping turtle that he found on the highway while launching fireworks out of his bottom, encouraging people to write "Amen" beneath it.
