Plus-sized model Tess Holliday graces the cover of Cosmopolitan UK's  October issue wearing nothing but an emerald-green one-piece swimsuit--and British blowhard Piers Morgan's got something to say about it, of course. "As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo. Apparently we're supposed to view it as a 'huge step forward for body positivity.' What a load of old baloney," Morgan wrote on Instagram. "This cover is just as dangerous and misguided as celebrating size-zero models."

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old Holliday tweeted Wednesday about her cover shot, "Phew, I’m literally a COSMO GIRL!! Can’t believe I’m saying that! Thank you @CosmopolitanUK for this incredible opportunity. If I saw a body like mine on this magazine when I was a young girl, it would have changed my life."
