It is amazing the response from the journalists who I have been talking to for the last two days in New York. Today one wanted to see the dad bod. Haha. I am wondering if I should show the picture... Body-shaming is always wrong! What do you think? #LastWitchHunter

Aside from his message of body shaming awareness on the social media platform, Diesel also appeared on Good Morning America where he had the opportunityto talk about the subject some more.
"Honestly I would rather it come to me than somebody else," the actor said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I can take it. I don't care really. I'm not trying to be in super shape all of the time. I'm trying to master my craft of making films. I do think it's wrong to body shame...Trolls on the Internet - there are all kinds of atrocities they commit on the Internet."
