Rapper Aitch, real name Harrison Armstrong, recently clapped back at all the critics that shamed the models he used for his single cover for their weight. Namely, the 21-year-old debuted the artwork for his new single Learning Curve last week, and in the photo he shared on Instagram, he can be seen with several gorgeous, curvy women. Yes, they look quite different from the usual models we see in the music industry, and many applauded the young rapper for using plus-size models for the artwork. Others, however, posted some nasty comments and the rapper was having none of it.

Talking about body positivity, this is what he told the Podcast Who We Be TALKS:
“All the negative stuff was mad to see; obviously, rappers get hate all the time, but it was a lot, and it was also s*** to see men hating on girls that much, it’s hard to witness.
If you’re going to comment and say that this tune is shit, then that’s fine, say no more, you can do, but why are you going to comment about a girl.
However, I also found out after I posted that picture how many men behind-the-scenes low-key like plus size girls, and how many were hiding from it.”
