“Love, Simon” Star Keiynan Lonsdale Promotes Body Positivity With Provocative Selfie

"Why is it deemed wrong to not wear clothes?" Why, indeed.

Australian actor and singer Keiynan Lonsdale took to social media on Sunday (September 9) to speak out against body shaming.

“Dance naked, lose followers, gain leaders,” the heartthrob wrote, but with this kind of content, he’s probably not going to be losing any followers any time soon.

“Why is it deemed wrong to not wear clothes?” asked the Love, Simon actor. “We’ve been taught poorly and groomed to hold shame for ourselves, our human bodies. No matter what we look like, each of us is made to feel incorrect inside our own physical form, told that in order to survive and be a functioning, liked, and well-respected person in society, we should hide this form from the world. That shit sounds whack to me.”
