British actress Anya Taylor-Joy has been accused of "normalizing hunger strikes" and promoting eating disorders. On February 25, after the premiere of the second part of Dune, the 27-year-old star posted a picture showing how she was preparing to hit the red carpet.

In the black-and-white photo on Instagram, Taylor-Joy poses topless in a narrow corset that makes her waist as narrow as possible. Fans of the actress were shocked, writes Daily Mail.

The star's fans expressed their outrage in the comments:

"Can you not normalize hunger strikes?"

"Do you realize how harmful corsets are to women's health and should not be advertised?"

"Are your ribs okay? Can you breathe?"

"I expected better from you, to be honest. Anorexia is not chic."

There were those who defended the actress:

"If she likes it and you don't, that's fine. You have the right not to wear it, just as she has the right to wear whatever she likes. We don't need to be dramatic about it..."

"Her body is perfect, she's always been slimmer, and in the first photo it's just a corset she wore during the event."

Recently, the popularity of corsets has skyrocketed after celebrities became obsessed with the narrow waist look. But doctors and historians warn against this trend, emphasizing that wearing a corset can affect many aspects of the body.

British journalist Tanith Carey talks about her reaction to what she saw. The Victorian-era corset was pulled very tightly, and the demonstration of this look generally fetishizes an unhealthily narrowed waist, the author writes. It is worth noting that Taylor-Joy's Instagram page has more than 10 million followers, and the photo received more than a million likes and almost 4 thousand comments in one day.

"A woman's body is a biological reality. Not a fashionable template. As the Victorians realized, compression with such corsets is expensive. Doctors of the time blamed corsets for the development of anemia, blood clots, fainting, infertility, miscarriages, and digestive problems," said Carey.
