When did body-shaming become acceptable? Oh wait, it’s not! Putting people down, just for your own ignorant self-satisying reasons is beyond cowardly. Honestly, if you find pleasure in hurting someone’s feelings, you live a very sad and empty life. Stop looking out the window and start looking in the mirror!
Lets be real, no one has the perfect body, unless you’re someone significant like Heidi Klum and can afford a personal chef/personal trainer. Even then, I’m sure even Miss Klum suffers from her own personal insecurities, as we all do.
Does the Kelly Clarkson fat-shaming story infuriate anyone else? Seriously, I’m cringing just thinking about it. If you’re not already familiar with the story, allow me to fill you in.
Basically, British journalist Katie Hopkins is now the most hated woman in Britain, after blasting Kelly’s weight. Hopkins said, “Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all her backing singers? Happily I have a wide-screen.” She also tweeted, “Darling, if you had a baby a year ago, that is not baby weight. It is fat. Quit calling it cute names to make yourself feel better” and “Baby weight, puppy fat, muffin top. We’re so weakwilled we have to make up cute names for fat. Babies, puppies, muffins. Nope. Just fat love.”
After extreme Clarkson fan backlash, Hopkins tweeted “Look chubsters, Kelly Clarkson had a baby a year ago. That is no longer baby weight. That is carrot cake weight. Get over yourselves.” (Jaw dropping) What I find hilarious is that Katie was insulted after being called a bully. Hypocrite much?
So, how did Kelly respond, you ask? During an interview, when about the fat-shaming Tweets, Clarkson said she had no idea what they were talking about. When the reporter explained who Hopkins is and what she had written, Clarkson laughed. “That’s because she doesn’t know me,” she said. “I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will.” Now that’s an inspiring woman. She followed up by saying, “I’ve just never cared what people think,” she told Heat magazine. “It’s more if I’m happy and I’m confident and feeling good. That’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family – I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”
In your face, whatever your name is Hopkins. Kelly doesn’t know who you are, nor care what you think. Kelly Clarkson has proven to be beautiful, both inside and out. Good for her, for paying no mind to the haters!
Should we make fun of Katie Hopkin’s weight? No, because we’re not cruel obnoxious human beings. Sorry not sorry, Katie, but your opinions are no longer relevant and nor are your idiotic criticisms. Bye, felicia!
If there’s a lesson to be learned, don’t be hateful or judgmental, because even if you’re the most beautiful person in the world, you’re sure to look ugly. Cardinal rule, “Treat others as you would want to be treated.”
In the end, only kindness matters.
