This Garbage Fire Of An Article About Ada Nicodemou’s Bunions Has Absolutely Done Me In

The Daily Mail is being called out by punters for a gross-ass article about *checks notes* wait a minute, couldn’t be *double checks notes* ah, yep. It is. It’s about… Home & Away actress Ada Nicodemou and her bunions.

Earlier today, the site published an article titled: ‘Ada Nicodemou, 43, reveals bunions on her feet as she walks Palm Beach in heels – after A-listers such as Meghan Markle and Victoria Beckham suffered with the condition in the past.’

I shit you the fuck not, that was the title.

Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself:

There are a myriad of things wrong with this headline / article / concept. First of all, why does any media outlet still think it’s okay to shame women for a “condition”, let alone something as basic as a fucking bunion. But like, she could have a candelabra growing out of her knee, that still doesn’t give anyone the right to comment on and ridicule it publicly. Stop. Body. Shaming. People.

Second of all, the fact that they’ve called it a “condition” is fucked. Getting a bunion is like getting a fucking pimple. It’s an extremely common and normal bodily function that is sure as shit not worthy of an entire article. And plus, it’s obvious that the intent here is to embarrass and humiliate the actress which is absolutely abhorrent.

And I honestly can’t with the fact that they’ve dragged Meghan Markle and Victoria Beckham into this. Ada, Meghan, Victoria, I’m so fucking sorry that you’ve been done so damn dirty here. I would send each of you flowers if I knew where to address them to.

I first spotted this cooked article shared in the So Dramatic! podcast’s Facebook page where members of the group were calling it out.

“Mate, they should see my bunions,” wrote on commenter, “SAME!! I’ve had them since I was a teen,” another responded.

“Woman has feet. Bring out the Walkley,” wrote a third person.

Fuck this article. Fuck body shaming. Fuck anyone who comes for our national treasure, Ada Nicodemou.
