A conversation about fat-shaming led ‘The View’ host Raven-Symoné to reveal she was forced to wear a fat suit while she starred ABC Family series “State of Georgia.”

“I feel when I lost my weight, like big-girl season came. There’s so many big girls that are now famous. And I  was over here, starving!” said Raven.

Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, “You were famous!” In response, Raven-Symoné continued, “I wouldn’t get my show unless I looked a certain way and things of that nature.”

Then, Whoopi told a story about how a director “needed” her to be the size she was before she dropped a bit of weight, and Raven revealed:

“They did that to me! On State of Georgia they had me wear a fat suit because they said I wasn’t the size they wanted me to be.”

Only in Hollywood can you either be too big or too small for someone else’s standards. Watch Raven’s revelation below.
