Vogue Writer Who Fat-Shamed Her 7-Year-Old Daughter Gets Book Deal

Whether it’s teenage runway models representing “different” body types or hailing all people over a size 2 as “curvy,” Vogue‘s annual “Shape Issue” is always a barrel of bitter laughs. This year, however, it may have gotten its darkest: socialite Dara-Lynn Weiss wrote candidly (and, seemingly, obliviously) about putting her seven-year-old daughter Bea on a strict diet that included publicly humiliating her, withholding cake at a birthday party and a bunch of other nightmare shit only a really, really, really questionable mother would do.
