Psychologist Jordan Peterson abandoned Twitter
Thus far, his followers do not agree with the popular author about his comments on the model and recording artist. But, Jordan Peterson will not be tamed as he stands by his words.
Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that. https://t.co/rOASeeQvee— Dr Jordan B Peterson (@jordanbpeterson) May 16, 2022
In a few threads of social media posts, Jordan Peterson shared the reasons why he thought Yumi Nu is not beautiful. Quite frankly, many social media users feel that his comment was extremely unsolicited.
Now, Yumi Nu actually made history this year. As she is the first model of Asian descent to be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated magazine. Since the comments, actually took away from this historical moment.
Yumi Nu brushes off the comments
However, Yumi Nu was not phased by Jordan Peterson as she simply commented on his shade with two words. The model has since not paid any mind to the negativity.
As shared by 7News, the model has previously experienced a lot of negativity when it comes to body shaming and accepting who she is as a person.
“I felt like I was less worthy for being Asian because I felt like an outsider being so tall,”Yumi Nu
Right now, Jordan Peterson shared that he will not be making use of Twitter considering all the rude comments towards him. He also shared that he will address matters in a video or article if he feels the need to.
The endless flood of vicious insult is really not something that can be experienced anywhere else. I like to follow the people I know but I think the incentive structure of the platform makes it intrinsically and dangerously insane. https://t.co/NlWTUKRHlG— Dr Jordan B Peterson (@jordanbpeterson) May 17, 2022
Currently, as many as 58 thousand people have liked the comment Jordan Peterson made about her body which means their are a lot of people who agree with him.
While Yumi Nu is a beautiful woman, social media users feel that she should have been in a healthier position before she appeared on the cover. It appears that the statement or comment centers on health reasons rather than the model’s beauty.
