‘I should know better’: Daisy May Cooper apologises to fans and deletes weight loss post after receiving backlash over calling herself a ‘midget’

Daisy May Cooper has apologised to fans for calling herself a ‘midget’ in a now-deleted weight loss post shared to Instagram on Sunday.

The actress, 34, initially took to the social media platform to display the results of her keto diet after welcoming her second child with husband Will Wetson in September last year.

However, the This Country star was met with backlash as she made the offensive comparison to describe her appearance, before admitting: ‘I should know better.’

The media personality continued to express her regret over the message as she wrote in a separate note, posted on Monday: ‘I’m extremely sorry. Thankyou so much to everyone who called me out on it. Love you all.’ (sic)

Award-winning writer Daisy originally uploaded before and after photos of herself standing by her bathroom mirror as she detailed her new health journey. 

The TV star wrote in an accompanying caption: ‘Anyone else doing keto? My mate Sarah and my da suggested I give it a try and I’m shocked at how quickly weight is dropping off.

‘Forgive the s***e mirrors and grey bra and the fact im not standing in the same position so I look like a midget on the right…

‘And don’t panic… im not going to be promoting any s**t weightloss dvds or products. Pic on the right taken 1st of Jan. Be grateful for any keto tips, only diet I’ve ever really enjoyed.’ (sic)

The Cirencester native was called out by a disabled single mother, who urged her social media followers to send Daisy a constructive criticism over the use of the term.

Cathy Kamara later thanked the mother-of-two for taking down her post, but also insisted she’d need to ‘address her mistake publicly in order to raise awareness’.

The social media star wrote: ‘She’s deleted her post but I can’t unsee the fact that it had already been up for 24 hours, amassed 82,000 likes (including two mutuals!?), and almost 2,500 comments, none of which called this out.

‘@daisymaycooper thank you for taking it down, next step would be to address your mistake publically in order to raise awareness among your large fan base that seemingly don’t find issue with this s**t.’ (sic)

Restricted growth, sometimes known as dwarfism, is a condition characterised by short stature. 

WHAT IS DWARFISM?

Restricted growth, sometimes known as dwarfism, is a condition characterised by short stature.

There are two main types of restricted growth:

  • Proportionate short stature (PSS) – a general lack of growth, where the length of the trunk and limbs are in proportion
  • Disproportionate short stature (DSS) – where the limbs are shorter or out of proportion with other parts of the body

As well as having short stature, some people with restricted growth also have other physical problems, such as bowed legs or an unusually curved spine.

However, most people don’t have any other serious problems. They can often live a relatively normal life and have a normal life expectancy.
