Victoria Beckham explodes TV presenter who weighed her in the air after giving birth!

Victoria Beckham would like to remind us that entertainment media has come a long way!

In an interview for an upcoming issue of Vogue Australiathe Spice Girls alum recalled a horrific television appearance in the late ’90s where she was asked to weigh herself in front of cameras just two months after welcoming her son Brooklyn with husband David Beckham

The icky incident took place on the British TV presenter Chris Evans‘ show TFI Friday in 1999. Evans complimented the singer for looking “fantastic” after the birth of her firstborn, then asked how she could get back in shape.

Posh Spice admitted she hadn’t worked out before Evans inappropriately asked her:

“Is your weight back to normal?”

Vicky played it cool and said it was. Evans wasn’t so sure, though, and had the audacity to ask the star if he could “check.”

He then pulled out a scale and jokingly encouraged the fashion icon to weigh himself. He joked:

“Eight Stones (112 lbs) not bad at all, right?”

Yes, this disgusting moment used to pass as a fun TV gag! (Suddenly we’re much more thankful for it) Jimmy Fallon‘s Giant Beer Pong segments…) The designer referred to the gross on-air incident while speaking to the magazine, recalling:

“I went to a TV show with Chris Evans many years ago and I had just had Brooklyn and lost a lot of weight after that.”

The now 48-year-old said her mother also lost weight after giving birth, noting that “it doesn’t mean you have an eating disorder.” She added:

“And he left me on the scale to be weighed. Can you imagine that nowadays?”

Absolutely not!

This isn’t the only questionable talk show incident for Evans. In 2016, he was questioned by police after a woman claimed he exposed himself to her Channel 4‘s The big breakfast† The host denied indecent assault and claimed he was the victim of a witch hunt.

Elsewhere in her interview, Beckman reflected on how much the media dissected her body in general, recalling:

“I’ve had ‘Porky Posh’, I’ve had ‘Skeletal Posh.’ After I had Brooklyn, there was a picture that pointed to every part of my body where I needed to focus on losing the weight.”

We’re so glad things are different now (exclusively Instagram comments, we mean)!
