Eddie Murphy's Daughter Zola Ivy Responds to Critics Saying She's so Skinny

Eddie Murphy's daughter Zola gave her Instagram followers a piece of her mind after she spotted some comments on her photos saying she was skinny. She revealed that if people began calling her names because of her weight, so would she and she wouldn't hold back from it. 

Zola Murphy believes that commenting on someone's weight is no good way to start a conversation, as it'll only lead to the person feeling conscious and uncomfortable. After she noticed that more and more people were commenting on her photos calling her "skinny," she decided to finally call them out

"Friendly reminder that you should never feel comfortable commenting on someone's weight because they are "skinny" or underweight."


On her Instagram stories, she let everyone know that she wasn't about to just allow everyone to call her "skinny." She added that there's no need to comment about someone's weight as they are already aware of it as it's their life. 

"Many people (like myself) are skinny because of genetics. NOT eating disorers or personal choice."


Zola Ivy is one of Eddie and Nicole Murphy's children, who is signed as a runway and print model with one of the biggest modeling agencies in the world, IMG.
