Grant Gustin denounces 'double standard' in Instagram response to body shamers

Gustin also defended his new wardrobe, saying the unofficial photo was "terrible" and that "it's a cool suit". The outfit appears to be made of thinner material than the traditional leather and features a smaller Flash emblem and a new mask that does not cover Gustin's chin.

As it is the internet, more than a few fans have stated they are not in favor of it, with some stating Grant Gustin is too skinny or the costume too big, which saw Grant Gustin post a lengthy response to on Instagram.

The actor, 28, took to Instagram after a leaked photo of him in his new costume for season 5 of The CW show The Flash sparked criticism of his weight. "Some things need work and they will be worked on", he continued. That's what pisses me off. "Not even just for my sake". But there is a double standard where it is ok to talk sh*t about a dude's body. The look we've got at it so far is just a piece of concept art and a quick test photo that was clearly taken earlier on in the process. "I do my best to stay in shape and add as much size as I can through out these seasons", he said. Gustin explained that it's taken him a while to be happy with his naturally thin frame and his weight has always been something he's struggled to accept, but he's finally happy with his body.

The actor also pointed out that it is very hard for him to gain weight and made it very clear that skinnier men should not receive all of this criticism for the way they look, especially if they can't help it.

As spotted by Voicebox , Amazon is rolling out a feature called Answer Update on Alexa devices over the next week. The user can later opt out of the "Answer Update" feature by saying, "Alexa, turn off Answer Update".

Responding to comments about his thin physique, Gustin wrote: "I've had 20+ years of kids and adults telling me or my parents I was too thin".

Gustin goes on to explain that stress "ebbs and flows for me throughout the season". The result is that it's hard for Gustin to gain weight.

The photo, which gained plenty of attention online, showed Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster for season five of the series, but the suit design wasn't one that fans have seen in the previous four seasons.
