These 5 Celebrities Slammed Body Shamers and Spoke Up For Women of All Sizes

By  - 7 years ago

Just like most of us, celebrities have also been on the receiving end of body shaming. These confident women displayed grace and strength when using their influence to slam body shamers to speak up for women of all sizes.

5. Tyra Banks

In case you forgot about this iconic moment on talk show history, Tyra Banks turned the phrase “kiss my fat ass” iconic when she powerfully responded to a tabloid that published a photo of her in a swimsuit and bashed her for her curves.

“If I had lower self-esteem, I would probably be starving myself right now. But that’s exactly what is happening to other women all over this country,” said the talk show host/supermodel.

4. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga gave a stellar performance at the Super Bowl, but all haters took notice of was her belly. What the heck, right?.


But whatever. Lady Gaga knows better than to let her haters bring her down. In an Instagram post, she said:

I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you.

You do you, Lady Gaga.

3. Demi Lovato

After completing rehab for her eating disorder, Demi Lovato attended the 2011 VMAs looking AMAZING—but trolls criticized her for her weight gain (why are we not surprised?).

Of course, Demi took to Twitter a beautiful response:


We think she looks great, by the way.

Proud of you, Demi!

2. Adele

In a newspaper interview back in 2012, Chanel’s head designer, Karl Lagerfeld, said that, “[Adele is] a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”

But this beautiful lady only had these words to say, “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.”

Thank you, Adele!

1. Miss Universe Canada 2016

Finally, who remembers Miss Canada 2016, Siera Bearchell? She’s been attacked by beauty pageant critics because of her body, but this body positivity advocate proves us just why she’s a queen.

In an Instagram post, Miss Canada spoke up with these words:

‘How does it feel to be so much.. larger than the other delegates?’

I was just asked this question in a press junket by a member of the media. I was left almost speechless. I thought, “How does it feel to be myself? How does it feel to be confident in who I am? How does it feel to fulfill my dream of representing Canada on the Miss Universe stage? How does it feel to be a role model for so many young women who struggle to find someone to look up to? How does it feel to redefine beauty?”- My answer- It feels great.

What a strong, beautiful woman.
