In a post to TikTok he talked about the photo and took issue with people commenting on his body.

In the video, Young-White said, “I love posting my body, but I hate people saying shit to me.”

“When people comment shit like, ‘Oh, wow, you really got over your COVID bod,’ or, ‘Oh, I see your hard work—you look so much better,’ projecting all of their own shit onto me. 

‘The Body Was Never A Problem’

“Like, look, I know you don’t love yourself if you don’t look a certain way, but I always know that I’m hot and sexy. All the time. Listen, I might hate myself, but those are for mental and emotional reasons. The body was never a problem. It was never a problem. 

He summed it up by saying, “Whatever the serving size is, it’s serving hot and sexy.”
