Word on the Street: #Fatkini hashtag trend sweeping across social media platforms

Plus-sized women across the country are flaunting their curves and tagging their photos on social media with the hashtag #fatkini.



The trend was started by blogger Gabi Gregg, who says she wants to encourage women of all shapes and sizes to love their bodies.



News 12 The Bronx hit the street to ask residents how they feel about the use of the hashtag.



Some said the trend is a bad idea because it promotes obesity, while others think it gives curvy women a platform to express themselves.
