Lizzie Velasquez is considered to be the ‘world’s ugliest woman’. She was born with lipodystrophy – a problem with the way the fat is distributed in the body.
Lizzie was born in 1989 and at 5ft 2ins tall, she weights only 58lbs. Unfortunately, since her early days, her parents have been reported she had the Marfan syndrome, an extremely rare genetic disorder that affects bone development, prevents fat assimilation in the body, and causes premature aging. As if that wasn’t enough. Lizzie was born with a dysfunctional eye.
When Lizzie was only 16 years old, a movie with several photos of her, accompanied by the message “This is the ugliest person in the world!” went viral on the internet. After that, hundreds of extremely malicious comments followed.
This didn’t stop her to get on with her life.
Now 26, the inspirational woman has hit back at the trolls with an anti-bullying documentary about her life, describing her battle with a rare condition which stops her putting on weight, according to dailymail.co.uk
