Most of the comments display awe and admiration towards the actor who had become so fit and lean. But some comments show concern regarding his health by asking if the actor is physically okay. This means some of his fans are doubtful regarding his apparent weight loss because they fear that it might be an indication of some underlying condition.

It is evident from the picture that Anderson has lost a considerable amount of weight. One cannot completely dismiss the concerns over his current body weight as the actor had already revealed his battle with type 2 diabetes. 

Even though the fans are concerned about the weight loss of the previous host of the ABC game show, To Tell the Truth, some of the comments that appear beneath his post are a bit hurtful. Some of his ardent fans think that a similar case of body shaming happened to Chadwick Boseman when he appeared as a leaner figure on social media platforms. Similar comments were also directed toward Boseman without knowing his hidden battle with colon cancer, to which he had lost his life afterward. That is why some fans are against putting such comments that display an act of body shaming.

According to them, you never know what someone might be battling inside. Anderson is already known to have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and this might be one of the reasons behind his sudden weight loss. Anyway, fans are now more cautious about commenting on his photo in light of his revelations regarding diabetes.
