AceShowbiz - Celebrities don't always have the best experience on social media. While some users used social media to show support and shower their favorite artists love, some trolls think they are allowed to body-shame these artists behind anonymity.

Amid the toxicity, there is so much that these stars can tolerate. Some of them decided to make use of their platforms to clap back at haters who made cruel comments on their body. One star savagely ripped the haters and paparazzi for their disrespectful behavior and remarks, while someone opted to respectfully asked people to be "gentle" with each other.

These are celebrities who speak out against people body-shaming them.

1. Lili Reinhart

Lili Reinhart addressed her perspective on body image while at the GLAMOUR Women of the Year Summit in 2018. Talking about seeing her body in paparazzi pictures, the "Riverdale" actress said during her speech, "I became hyper-aware of my changing body. I could see the difference in my shape in photos and wondered if anyone else was noticing. I felt this strange, constant struggle of having to live up to the expectation of the appearance that I had already established to the world."

She later voiced concerns about what her daughter will face in the future, reflecting on her experience of being body-shamed by others. "I think about when I have kids in the future, will my daughter be self-conscious about gaining weight? Will she feel the need to explain her body or justify it to anyone as it changes? Will she feel that same need that I do now – to apologize to her peers and say, 'My body doesn't usually look like this,' or 'I'm just a little heavier than usual right now'? How utterly ridiculous is it that we even think about explaining the nature of our bodies to other people?" she said.

2. Adele


Adele famously called out the intense scrutiny of her body by the media and her fans in her interview with British Vogue back in 2021. "People have been talking about my body for 12 years. They used to talk about it before I lost weight. But yeah, whatever, I don't care. You don't need to be overweight to be body positive, you can be any shape or size," the "Easy on Me" singer said.

The Grammy-winning musician went on to criticize those who sought to capitalize on her weight loss. "You know a hundred per cent of the stories written about me have been absolutely fake. The people that came out being like, 'I trained her,' I've never met in my life. It's disgusting," the singer noted, before shutting down rumors that her weight loss had something to do with her divorce.

3. Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham criticized the impossible beauty standards that she's held to as a plus-sized model in a powerful essay for Lenny Letter. She wrote, "To some I'm too curvy. To others I'm too tall, too busty, too loud, and, now, too small - too much, but at the same time not enough."

She went on to note, "When I post a photo from a 'good angle,' I receive criticism for looking smaller and selling out. When I post photos showing my cellulite, stretch marks, and rolls, I'm accused of promoting obesity. The cycle of body-shaming needs to end. I'm over it."

4. Gabourey Sidibe

Gabourey Sidibe also has a perfect reaction to body-shamers. The "American Horror Story" star called out people criticizing her for her weight. "People pretend that they care about my health by calling me a fat disgusting b***h,” adding, 'You do not care about my health. You are just a giant a**,' " she said on Janet Mock's podcast "Never Before" back in 2017.

"You think that you can have an opinion about me - but this is my body. I'm not out here in these streets writing think pieces about how your d**k is too small," she added.

5. Lizzo


Lizzo isn't here for any slander. The "About Damn Time" hitmaker epically responded to trolls making offensive rumor that she kille someone by stage-diving. "So, I've seen a lot of annoying things about me on the internet but the thing that bothers me the most is this rumour that I stage dived at a concert and killed somebody," the singer said on TikTok in 2021.

Noting that the rumor was a lie, the Grammy winner stressed, "I've never stage dived in my life and b*tch, how, like killed somebody? Y'all really gon' put that on my mtherf**king name? Like, I know I'm big but b***h, I'm not that f**king big."

6. Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian is tired by the constant question about whether or not she's pregnant. In August 2021, "The Kardashians" star put haters in their place after one Instagram user claimed "SHE'S PREGNANT" because she had a belly. "I'm a woman with a BODY," Kourtney responded.

She also noted in an Instagram Live with pal Sarah Howard that she said it's not bad thing to look pregnant, adding, "I know what my body looks like when I'm pregnant. I've been pregnant three times. It's very feminine to have curves and I embrace my body, so I didn't take it offensively."

7. Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish is among stars who is fallen victim to body-shaming. The "bad guy" hitmaker made use of her "Where Do We Go" tour to address bodyshamers in a powerful speech back in 2021. "If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut. Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me," she told the crowd at the time.

"While I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sighs of relief, if I lived by them, I'd never be able to move," she added. "The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted? If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut. Though you've never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it. Why?"

8. Britney Spears

In January 2022, Britney Spears put paparazzi on blast for "body-shaming" her. Calling the media "hateful," the "Toxic" hitmaker claimed on Instagram that "paps still show pics of me on the balcony with fat rolls!!!!"

"The media has always been hateful to me!!! I know my body is not perfect by any means but I also know I definitely don't look like that!!!! Guess I should stay at the gym for three hours like [Sam Asghari] does lol... NEVER," the pop star continued.

9. Selena Gomez

Unfortunately, Selena Gomez is no stranger to dealing with body-shamers. In April 2022, the former DIsney darling hit back at haters while discussing the scrutiny she is under. "So I be trying to stay skinny, but I went to Jack in the Box and I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings and a spicy chicken sandwich," she revealed.

The "Lose You to Love Me" songstress, however, shared that she wasn't bothered by people's opinion on her body. "But honestly, I don't care about my weight because people b***h about it anyway. 'You're too small.' 'You're too big.' 'That doesn't fit.' 'Meh meh meh.' B***h, I am perfect the way I am. Moral of this story? Bye!"

10. Ariana Grande

Most recently, Ariana Grande made headlines after she addressed recent comments regarding her weight and figure in a TikTok video. The "7 Rings" singer said, "I know I shouldn’t have to explain that. But I do feel like maybe having an openness and some sort of vulnerability here, good might come from it." She added, "There are ways to compliment someone or to ignore something that you see that you don’t like, that I think we should help each other work towards."

She claimed that people people should feel "less comfortable" commenting on others' physical appearance, adding that "healthy can look different" on different people. "We should aim toward being safer, and keeping each other safer. You never know what someone is going through," she noted. "Even if you are coming from a loving place and a caring place, that person probably is working on it or has a support system that they are working on it with. Be gentle with each other and with yourselves."
