It seems like the only time I really come on here anymore is to vent, but hey, so be it.
In the words of a stereotypical white girl, I can’t even right now.
I stated my feelings regarding fat-shaming and the ugly hearted fat-shamers back when Kelly Clarkson was being attacked and you know what, people haven’t let up. Apparently, carrying extra weight is now a crime, at least if you’re a public figure (or at least thats how people treat you).
I can’t wrap my head around people being so cruel and making such inappropriate comments about a person’s weight. It’s disgraceful. Mocking someone’s weight is a cheap shot.
I’m not going to comment on whether I agree or disagree with Chris Christie and his political ways, but please, don’t be one of those bashing idiots that fat-shames him. How about educating yourself and criticizing his intellect or mistakes? If all you can do is poke fun and mock someone for not being able to control their weight, it shows just how ignorant of a person you really are. What justifies bullying and humiliating a man for personal issues he’s had to deal with for most of his life?
There’s no reason why you cant call out Christie for his political ambitions, but it should be because of his actions, not his waist size. Grow up, America!
How about being nice for a change? Is that so much to ask for?
It is ok to be angry. It is never ok to be cruel.
I guess it’s time to lower my expectations for society.
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.”
