A female bodybuilder has been slammed for body-shaming a woman at the gym by posting unflattering photos of her on social media and making cruel jokes about her weight.

Diana Andrews, from London, shared a picture of a woman on a treadmill to her 17,000 Instagram followers with the caption “love handles."

She then posted another snap on her Instagram story with the caption: “I bet she’s ordering burgers for delivery.”

Her Instagram account has since been set to private following a backlash for her distasteful posts.

But the photos were shared on a support group for women on Facebook with the caption: “This is why most people hate going to the gym to try and better themselves.”

She wrote on Snapchat: “I realised that I was wrong to make this silly joke. It wasn’t my intention to body shame, hurt or disrespect anyone.”
