BEING tall has it’s advantages.
You’re able to reach the top shelves in the supermarket or can probably nail a slam-dunk, but a family-of-six who claim to be ‘the tallest family on the Internet’ say they still get stared at in the street and trolls slam them as ‘skinny giants’ who should ‘eat more’.
The Clarks from Carolina are genetically blessed with long limbs with dad Rob being 6ft 6″, mum Rochelle, is 5ft 9″, their eldest son, Carter, 17, is the tallest at 7ft 1″, daughter Abby, 15, is 5ft 10″, the youngest daughter Avery, 13, is taller than her sister at 6ft 1″ and their youngest son, who is only 11, is 5ft 4″.
But while they’ve taken the Internet by storm in the past two years, showing off their happy family life to 1.3million TikTok viewers, trolls still go after them.
In a recent video, the tallest kids Carter and Avery stood side to hit back at those who skinny shame them.
Carter stood with a dumbbell in his hand and Avery had an enormous smoothie and they captioned the video with: “Telling tall and skinny people to eat more and hit the weight room.”

In the comments box they simply wrote: “Really good point, thank you.”
In fact, Carter regularly post about how his favourite hobby is ‘eating’ and he knows in the family as ‘Chef Carter’ as he’s often whipping up treats to feast on.
Being 7ft 1″ Carter also spends loads of time playing basketball and daughter Avery also plays for the Greenville Comets.
