Nina Agdal is continuing to speak out against body-shaming. 

During an appearance on Megyn Kelly Today on Monday, the 25-year-old model opened up about her reaction to a magazine allegedly not running her cover because she did not fit into sample sizes.

"I can't stand up for this anymore. It's always been that models are coat hangers, but that is not how it is anymore. Like, enough is enough, and I can see that from the response," Adal told Kelly. "Everybody is like, 'We can't relate to these unrealistic body images,' and it creates this illusion that women are supposed to be [size] 0 or 00."

"These sample sizes that I'm supposed to fit in are actually tailored even more. So it's less than a 0, and it's promoted everywhere...and the fact that this publisher came after me when I was feeling so healthy and happy, I felt personally attacked," she shared. 

Agdal first spoke up about the issue in a powerful essay on her Instagram on Friday, alongside the photo her magazine allegedly decided not to run. 

"I was like, 'You know what? I can't take this anymore.' I have to stand up for all the girls and women out there, because enough is enough, and I can't be a part of this big lie and this perception game that's going on," Agdal said on Megyn Kelly Today. "I'm just not going to participate in that anymore." 

Agdal isn't the only one to clap back at body-shamers. See what Ireland Baldwin had to say in the video below.
