    Lizzy was born with Marfan and lipodystrophy which means she is unable to gain weight and has severe and persistent medical issues and a distinctive appearance. Although she found the cruel comments left under the video traumatic, she fought back and has become an activist helping others be 'confident in their own skin'. She has her own YouTube channel now with hundreds of thousands of views, and has spoken at the Prestigious Ted Talks.

    And now she's in the movies. What a beautiful person.

    I want to see her film. Was so glad she introduced it here at SBSW! She is no where near "the ugliest woman" - she's so endearing looking. I tell you, I've seen some UGLY women in mugshots. Hateful, angry, evil bulldog like women with bizarre eyebrows and make up and fearsome expressions.

    How blind, that anyone ever called this beautiful soul the ugliest woman.

    So, so sorry folks! I didn't put the link in that story, or even Lizzy's full name! what was I thinking? I'm so embarrassed. Here is one. And will try to find Lizzie Velasquez's Ted Talk.

    Many apologies once again.

    People can really be despicable. :(

    Christopher Reeve was also told to 'kill himself' and he's 'better off dead' by cruel strangers who had lost all their humanity.

    Lizzy is a fine example of a bright, young woman ready to take on the world and show them what she's made of, damn the critics. :aktion:

    Oh my gosh, I'm crying! People can be real asshats, but what an amazing person, just her outlook on life will see her to have much more success in life that the haters on the Internet. Tony Robbins should have her at his conventions!!
