Former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Austin Armacost has been dragged for posting a supposedly “brave selfie”.
The ex-boyfriend of Marc Jacobs shared a snap of himself on the edge of a boat, writing that he was proud of his body, despite it not being perfect.
However followers were quick to point out his body was hardly unattractive – slamming claims he had been brave.
Posting the pic, he wrote: “This is my body. No 6 pack, no bulging biceps, & a little chubby BUT I LOVE my body. Don’t like it, unfollow”
He added the hashtags “#FuckTheHaters 👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼 #Happy”.

Austin previously claimed he is “asexual”.
The TV personality said: “I am probably in all honesty the least sexual people you will ever meet,” he said.
“As much as I love getting my kit off and showing my bum everywhere, I am like a nun in bed.”
Asexual is defined as “without sexual feelings or associations.”
Many people aren’t interested in having sex or don’t feel sexual attraction to other people, loosely termed as asexuality.
The PinkNews guide to asexuality explains more.
Armacost added that he does have sex, but rarely, however.
