No is immune to the sting of being judged by others– and now with social media and the ability to leave hateful anonymous comments, body-shamers are worse than ever before. Now, some women have had enough and they’re lashing out at the haters. Here are 15 women who shut down their body-shamers like a boss.
1. Kelly Clarkson
After British television personality Katie Hopkins joked that Kelly had “eaten all her backup singers,” the star responded, “I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me.” In a later interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she added, “It’s like, you are who you are. And it doesn’t mean that you’re going to be that [way] forever. Sometimes I’m more fit and I get into kickboxing hardcore. And sometimes I don’t and I’d rather have a glass of wine.”
After P!nk attended a benefit supporting a friend receiving an award for her commitment for cancer research, Twitter users were quick to criticize her size. The star posted a note in response, saying, “While I admit that that dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful.” She continued, “I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off.”
