What Offensive Nickname Did Kailyn Lowry’s Mom Give Her Growing Up?

Kailyn Lowry is finally comfortable in her own skin after years of struggling with fluctuating weight and body image issues. As the spokesperson for the Beauty Is Sizeless campaign, she's opening up about her story to help other young women tackle their insecurities head on.

Recently, the Teen Mom 2 star revealed that some of her problems stemmed from a seemingly harmless nickname her mom gave her as a kid: Chunky Monkey.

"I didn’t think it was funny then, and I definitely don’t now, either," she said in an interview on the campaign's website.

Although the name had a negative effect on Kai, she is doing her best to move past it by living life with a positive, healthy attitude.

“Beauty is sizeless, but healthy is beauty too!" she explained. "As long as we’re healthy and comfortable in our own skin, nothing else matters."

What do you think of the nickname Kailyn's mom gave her? Offensive or no big deal?
