5 of the Best Celeb Responses to Body Shaming

It is never acceptable to comment on someone else’s body but people still do, particularly online where they feel they can say whatever they want and don’t think about the damage they’re doing. These 5 celebrities decided to speak out against those who have openly criticised them, saying they won’t be shamed for their figures and that there is simply no ideal because people always find something that’s wrong, no matter what shape or size. Here are 5 of the best star responses to body shaming.

Chrissy Teigen


Chrissy hit back at her haters by saying they wouldn’t say it to her in person: “In what other real life situation would you walk up to someone and tell them they’re fat or gained weight?… It’s amazing to me that I am told to get over the a**holes but the a**holes are never told to stop being pieces of s***.”

Demi Lovato

Demi explained that those who shame her are the unhappy ones: “I’ve gained weight. Get over it. That’s what happens when you get out of treatment for an eating disorder. Guess what, I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight, you obviously aren’t.”

Emma Stone

Emma thinks there is no winning and that people need to learn acceptance: “I’ve seen a lot of comments that say, ‘Eat a sandwich’ or ‘She looks sick.’ I’ve been looking at myself in the mirror being mean to myself. I’m not sick. I eat sandwiches. I’ve shamed myself for it. We shame each other online. We’re always too skinny or too fat or too tall or too short. It bothers me because I care so much about young girls.”

Jaime King

Jaime admits that people’s comments hurt: “All people do all day is comment. They just say whatever the f**k they want to say, and they don’t actually think that it’s going hurt me.”

Kendall Jenner

Kendall hit back at people who call her too skinny, saying it’s just as bad as fat shaming: “I’m constantly criticised for being too skinny. I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it’s not a nice feeling.”
