As we all know, Hollywood is a really shallow place. Looks are everything – even though they shouldn’t be. The media makes sure to monitor how much weight actresses lose or gain and they can be quite cruel. They aren’t alone. With social media, everyday people get to throw in their two cents and they can be quite cruel too. While some celebrities can’t take this kind of criticism and end up conforming, there are others out there who have defended themselves against all of the fat shaming. They don’t believe that they need to be super skinny to be considered beautiful. Here are 8 celebrities who are fighting back against fat shaming!
8. Kim Kardashian
When Kim Kardashian was pregnant, she had to deal with a lot of criticism about her weight. Instead of letting it get her down, it helped her to lose the baby weight fast. “The haters helped motivate me,” she said. “Seeing every crazy thing written about me gave me motivation, but it’s just my personality to want to be fit, not be lazy.” When the criticism continued, she fought back on Instagram. “Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you. I’m not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me. And BTW I’ve lost a lot so far & I’m proud of that!”
Khloe also defended her sister against all of the criticism on her blog. “I find it disturbing that society loves to critique a woman’s shape. That is low in and of itself, but I cannot tolerate one more vicious attack on my sister!”
