But Holliday was later slammed for her fuller figure of Morgan.

Morgan shared picture of the Vacation on his Twitter page and wrote: “This is very sad. She urgently needs better friends, who are going to be more honest with her and explain she is dangerously overweight and should do something about it.”

Holliday, 33, then took off to the TV host and said: “in The last two weeks have you obsessed with me,” she wrote. “I feel like you are almost in thicker girls and are too afraid to admit it.”

Despite Morgan’s comments about the plus-size model, Holliday is making a name for herself in the fashion world, recently posing for the cover of Cosmopolitan UK

And although Morgan also tweeted that the model on the cover was glamourizing obesity, Holliday explains in a recent interview with “Good Morning America” that she ignored his words and not leave it up to her.

“Unlike Piers Morgan, I don’t need to troll people to stay relevant,” the mother of two told “GMA.” “I have a great job and do what I love and hopefully change people’s lives.”

She continued, “I am at the heaviest that I have ever had in my life now, and it took me the hardest is to finally love myself,” she said. “I was an AMERICAN size 16 and 18 my entire life before I had Rylee [her first son who she had at the age of 20]. I look back on those photos now and I do not wish I was that size, but what I wish is that I held myself 120 pounds ago.”
