It seems that despite all of the work campaigns are currently doing to shun the body shamers, it's still a very real thing. And when supermodels are catching the heat for not appearing stick thin, it really puts a damper on everyone's perspective on society ... and further worries us about our own self-image. Because if Gigi Hadid is being told she's too big, then what's that say about us, right?
But after the online abuse put a thorn in Hadid's side, she decided to respond to all the haters in an eloquent way. "Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body," she said. Right on girl! And if you just want to clap after a comment like that, then you'll undoubtedly love these other inspiring remarks from women in the spotlight who were body shamed.
“I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much-deserved time off."
2. Ariana Grande
“I’m shaking my pretty, cute, petite booty next to Nicki’s pretty, big booty. Both are f*cking awesome. How about we respect people’s body boundaries and encourage each other to feel like a babe, no matter how they are?”
3. Kelly Clarkson
“I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s like, you are who you are. It doesn’t mean 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.”
4. Alyssa Milano
“So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat shame me. Be well and God bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife.”
5. Demi Lovato
“Guess what?” she said. “I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight, you obviously aren’t.”
6. Gabourey Sidibe
“To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I most definitely cried about it on that private jet, on my way to my dream job last night. #JK.”
Do these women inspire you to take the haters comments with a grain of salt and love the body you're in?
