Jordyn Woods recently took to social media to show off her new appearance courtesy of a weight loss journey.
She put up two photos of her before and after losing weight. Then she added that the changes were gotten from her app called FRSTPLACE.
Fans were quick to criticize Wood’s claims and pointed out that it is likely that she used plastic surgery to achieve her looks. Many were also skeptical that her app was indeed responsible for her new look.
In response to the trolls, Karl Anthony-Towns took to his Twitter to defend his girlfriends’ fitness journey; he stated that it was all-natural and as a result of hard work, took jabs at people who had trolled her for her post and encouraged her fans to test her app and try it out.
Below are all the details on Woods’ post, the criticism she received, and how Anthony-Towns got involved.
Jordyn’s Before And After Posts
In a recent post on her Instagram page, Woods put up pictures of herself that showed a drastic change in her weight and appearance.
The 23-year-old model, businesswoman, and socialite captioned the post with a claim that her app, Frstplace is responsible for her body changes and that it helped her to lose weight and achieve the look she desired.
In her caption, she made no mention of the specific time it took to achieve her body goals but did reveal that it did not happen overnight and that the “transformation was a gradual change.”
The post was part of a promotional campaign for a contest by her business brand, Frstplace, a workout and fitness platform that gives exercise and well-being guides to subscribers.
The campaign was going to award a prize of $2500 for the most dramatic transformation photos, just like the photos Woods posted.
Critics Of her Fitness Journey
Although several fans and celebrities made positive remarks about Woods’ post, and congratulated her for the hard work she put into the process, there are some that felt otherwise.
They let out negative comments on the post, because they believed that her body change was as a result of plastic and cosmetic surgery, and not natural weight loss as she claimed.
One comment read, “Stop telling these people you did this with diet and exercise. You looked beautiful before and you look beautiful now but let’s be honest”. Another wrote in the comment section and said, “I know you not saying an app gave you this body. Girl.”
While many simply believed that Woods lied about her transformation, some were also angry and frustrated at her alleged lack of transparency and intent to deceive people for profit.
One of such comments read, “She looks good, however, a plastic surgeon helped with the transformation! Please stop selling false hope to young girls and women!”
Woods’ Boyfriend Defended Her Honor
Many fans and celebrities jumped to Woods’ defense, insisting that she could become fit naturally, and expressed their confidence that the socialite was telling the truth.
Anthony-Towns was one of the people who voiced this opinion online. He took to Twitter on September 9, to defend Woods’s image and applaud her efforts.
His defense took the form of retorts at those who criticized Woods’ post and body, and lengthy words which challenged the false opinions of those who said she had surgery.
One of his posts read, “Are we saying that women can’t work hard and transform their bodies?? I’ve SEEN the hard work and I’ve seen the results, and trust me, this is all-natural.

…Since she was 10, people have been calling this woman vile things because of her weight, and instead of letting the Internet run her life, she went out, put the damn work in, and changed her whole life. FITNESS SAVED HER LIFE!”
He further promoted Woods’ app; sharing kind words to her fans for their unwavering support. He then gave a shout-out to Woods in a short tweet.
Woods and Karl-Anthony Towns’ Relationship
From friends to lovers, is the best phrase to describe the relationship between Woods and Karl-Anthony Towns.
They went public as a couple in September 2020, after years of friendship, during which Woods even said in an Instagram comment that they “had too deep a friendship to think of him as a partner.”
However, their platonic friendship status changed when Towns’ mother died from Covid-19 complications.
They became very close and were often there for one another. It did not take long for romantic feelings to start seeping in, and they acted on it.
A while ago, the pair slammed trolls online, who used photoshopped pictures to spread rumors that Towns was cheating on Woods.
In his clap back to the rumors, the Dominican-American hinted that he plans to marry Woods one day, a hint that fans took seriously when a photo of the model wearing a huge diamond ring on her ring finger surfaced on Instagram.
Ever since fans have speculated continuously that the duo is engaged, neither of them addressed this notion to date.
