Recently, one of the fans shamed this celebrity for his fat body, asking him why he was still a fat man in the show if he was trekking and hiking all over the place without actually eating even a single bite. According to Bradley-West, this just shows that it’s not just women who have to go through the pressures of having the perfect body in the glamor industry.

We’ve got giant fire-breathing dragons, we’ve got ice zombies, we’ve got women giving birth to a cloud- why do you think it’s me still being fat that you just don’t buy?”
