Abbie Chatfield hits back at accusations she’s ‘anti-feminist’ as European holiday goes viral
The 26-year-old reality star turned podcast and radio host has been accused of being “anti-feminist” due to sharing images and videos of her consuming alcohol on her trip abroad, and has not taken these claims lying down.
“Why are you okay with getting paid alcohol promotions that harm women? And you claim to be a feminist? Alcohol is the patriarchy’s biggest tool,” one of Chatfield’s followers commented on her posts, which Chatfield then re-shared onto her Instagram Story.
“Abbie why are you promoting and endorsing cancer through alcohol consumption to your young and impressionable following?” another comment from the same person said.
“Being the vaccine public health QUEEN I’m sure you know the other dangerous stats young woman face?? Where are you in regards to that?”
Chatfield has previously gone viral for her COVID-19 advocacy, as well as her social media activism regarding intersectional feminism — most recently in Italy when she called out a sexist menu practice at a restaurant.
“Get a grip. I like a drink, maybe go and get vaccinated,” Chatfield replied to the follower, before suggesting the person unfollow her.
Chatfield has been travelling around Europe and the United Kingdom with her 31-year-old boyfriend, Konrad Bień-Stephen.
Last week, she went viral for highlighting the gender-based assumption that Bień-Stephen would be paying for the couple’s meal at an expensive restaurant in Italy, due to the fact that he was given a menu with prices on it while hers did not include pricing information.
Chatfield has since become a media sensation in Italy as a result, with publications such as Vanity Fair Italia, Libero Quotidiano and Il Resto Del Carlino writing articles about her comments regarding the menu practice.
The headline in Vanity Fair Italia read: “Venezia, la protesta dell’influencer: Il menu senza prezzi per le donne? Sessismo.”
Roughly, that translates in English to, “Venice, the protest of the influencer: The menu without prices for women? Sexism.”
According to one of Chatfield’s Italian followers, the restaurant in question will now ask each customer which menu they want to see.
