Kenzie Brenna is getting real about self love.
On Monday, the Canadian influencer took to Instagram to share a candid and important message about weight and body positivity with her 386,000 followers.
In the video, the 32-year-old sat on a couch and filmed herself talking to the camera. Brenna sported a fresh-faced look and styled her strawberry blonde locks in a high ponytail.
She looked to be wearing a black crew neck from fellow Canadian social media star Sarah Nicole Landry‘s latest collaboration with Brunette the Label.
In her speech, the influencer, who has opened up about beauty and body standards in the past, gave fans her hot take: “self love has no weight limit.”
“You know what I hate? Is when I’m doing my thing online and talking all about body positivity, whatever. I’m like don’t shame people, just let people live. And someone comes around and they’re like well what about the people on ‘My 600 Pound Life?’ And this always gets brought up, so let’s address it,” Brenna said.

The body image advocate went on to explain how struggling individuals need support and compassionate healthcare providers to help them.
“People who have metabolic disorders, or people who have eating disorders or food addictions are going through something. And they need medical attention and healthcare providers that are not judgemental and have their best interests at heart. I cannot stress this enough..,” Brenna added. “And we should be f****** kind to people who are going through stuff. And those people are still allowed to practice self love. Not that hard.”
In the caption, the Toronto, Ont.-based content creator wrote: “it’s almost like, body shaming at any point in time serves no purpose!”
In the comments, fans thanked Brenna for her real take on an important topic.
“Love this message!” commented a follower.
“Say it louder! People need love and genuine support. And if I ever get to a point I can’t get out of bed…I will need the most amount of self love and support I’ve ever needed before,” shared someone else.
“Yes, preach it!” penned a fan alongside two clapping emojis.
“It’s absolutely wild how the world is set up to where people believe only people in bodies they deem ‘acceptable’ deserves kindness,” wrote fellow influencer Tiffany Ima.

Kyiv accused Russia on Monday of attacking Ukraine's second-largest nuclear plant in the south of the war-scarred country, the latest burst of fighting around atomic facilities that has raised fears of a radiation emergency. The Kremlin meanwhile dismissed outright claims that their forces had been responsible for mass killings in recently captured areas of east Ukraine and said Ukraine's claims it had discovered mass graves were made up. Ukraine's nuclear energy agency, Energoatom, said the Russian army "carried out a missile attack" on the industrial site of the Pivdennoukrainsk nuclear power plant, with a "powerful explosion" just 300 metres (985 feet) from its reactors. The strike damaged more than 100 windows of the power station's building, but the reactors were operating normally, according to the agency, which published photos of glass shattered around blown-out frames. It also released images of what it said was a two-metre-deep crater from where the missile landed. "Fortunately, no one among the power plant's staff was hurt," Energoatom said. Attacks around nuclear facilities in Ukraine have spurred calls from Ukraine and its Western allies to de-militarise areas around the facilities. Europe's largest atomic facility — the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Russian-held territory in Ukraine — has become a hot spot for concerns after tit-for-tat claims of attacks there. – 'We have to stop' Russia – Early in Russia's invasion in of Ukraine — launched in late February — there was fighting around Chernobyl in the the north, where an explosion in 1986 left swathes of the surrounding territory contaminated. President Volodymyr blamed Russia for the attack in the southern Mykolaiv region on Monday, which he said resulted in a short power outage at the facility. "Russia endangers the whole world. We have to stop it before it's too late," Zelensky said on Telegram. The Zaporizhzhia plant was seized by Russian troops in March and shelling around the facility has spurred interventions from Western leaders. A monitoring team of the UN's atomic agency deployed there in early September. French President Emmanuel Macron this month urged Vladimir Putin to withdraw Russian heavy weapons from the region, while the Russian president cautioned against potential "catastrophic" consequences of fighting there. The Mykolaiv region in southern Ukraine, where the Pivdennoukrainsk plant is located, is the near frontline of a Ukrainian counter-offensive in the south against Russian forces. Kyiv's forces have slowly but steadily been clawing back territory in the southern Kherson region, next to Mykolaiv, with the aim of capturing the strategically important hub, also called Kherson. Ukraine's progress has been faster in the north, where a lightning grab this month has seen Kyiv's forces reconquer nearly the entire Kharkiv region. Those gains have delt a serious blow to Moscow's ambitions of capturing and holding Donbas, a industrial region of eastern Ukraine that has been partially controlled by Kremlin-backed rebels since 2014. "It may seem to some of you that after a series of victories we have a certain lull," Zelensky said in an address to the nation on Sunday evening. "But this is not a lull. This is preparation … the whole Ukraine must be free," he said. – Mass grave 'lies' – The recapture of cities like Kupiansk and Izyum, which were key hub on Russian resupply routes mean Moscow will have greater difficulty supplying frontline positions elsewhere in east Ukraine. They have also brought fresh claims of atrocities committed by Russian troops during their months-long hold of Kharkiv-region towns and settlements, particularly after the discovery of mass burial sites. The Kremlin on Monday denied Russian forces were responsible for mass killings, dismissing the claims as fabricated. "These are lies," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Monday. Moscow "will stand up for the truth in this story." Civilians in towns and cities recaptured by Ukraine, however, have recounted Russia's brutal occupation. In Kupiansk, a town in Kharkiv, Mykhailo Chindey, said he had been tortured by Russian troops who suspected him of supplying coordinates to Ukrainian forces. "One person was holding my hand and another one was beating my arm with a metal stick. They were beating me up two hours almost every day," he told AFP. "I lost consciousness at some point. I lost a lot of blood. They hit my heels, back, legs and kidneys," he said. Russian forces have meanwhile continued shelling Ukrainian-held towns near the frontlines. The Ukraine presidency said that Russian forces remaining in the Kharkiv region had fired on a civilian car on Sunday, killing two women. In the Donetsk region, Russia shelling killed five civilians and injured another 18 people, Kyiv said. burs-jbr/lth/jm
