Grant Gustin responds to body shamers over new suit on 'The Flash'

Grant Gustin

A lot of fans, though, weren't focused on that and instead chose to publically criticize the way actor Grant Gustin looks in the suit, apparently forgetting or not caring that sharing thoughts on Twitter or Instagram is the equivalent of using your outside voice. "It's a awful photo that I was unaware was being taken, much less being posted". When someone shared a draft of the suit Gustin will wear in the new season, fans were quick to comment that not only did the suit look bad, but the naturally thin actor didn't have the physique to properly play the comic book hero. Gustin explained that comments about his body has followed him his whole life and that it needs to stop. That is what pisses me off. Now he's fighting back about being body shamed.

In an Instagram post, Gustin told people to refrain from judging the season five suit, which has been changed since the leaked photo was taken.

"There's a double standard where it's ok to talk s-- about a dude's body", adds Gustin. I am naturally thin, and my appetite's greatly affected by stress'.

The Flash Season 5 suit appears to nearly resemble one of those Mego action figures as the material seems to be less leather-looking than the previous versions and has more cotton-like material. However, he admits to suffering from stress while working which makes gaining weight hard for him.

Farmers in Australia get greater powers to kill kangaroos amid drought
The government would have been better off subsidising professional shooters to reduce kangaroo numbers more humanely, he said. Australia's prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has unveiled a package of measures to assist farmers coping with the conditions.

While it's frustrating that he's still having to face body shaming 5 seasons into his run as The Flash, we're glad Gustin took the time to address this very important issue.

And others were just annoyed by his response: "If Dwayne Johnson got cast as the Blob, I would be equally critical", said one reader, referencing an alien movie about a jelly-like creature.

'I'm happy with my body and who I am and other kids who are built like me and thinner than me should be able to feel the same way, ' he went on. But, here I am 5 seasons later.

It all started this week when a pic of the actor in costume on the set of the upcoming season leaked. "Not only that, but they should be able to feel like THEY could be a superhero on TV or film or whatever it may be some day".
