Billie Eilish hit back on critics who body-shamed her after a paparazzi photo went viral. The singer was sporting a pair of shorts and a tank top as she ditched her baggy clothes.
The photographs caught the musician’s casual attire and when it hit the internet, there was a lot of criticism. All of that criticism of an 18-year-old just way too toxic and should not or would not be encouraged here.
The Grammy-winner responded to the critics who dared to body-shame her. She reposted a TikTok clip from a beauty blogger called Chizi Duru. The artist captioned the repost and wrote as a reminder to people that Instagram has made everyone think normal bodies are abnormal.
Billie clarified some stereotypes and wrote, “NO. Not every black girl has a shelf behind them. The stomach pudge is completely normal. Most boobs SAGGGG.”
Unfortunately, this is not the first time the Bad Guy singer has been subject to body shaming. Last spring, Billie posted a short film that said Not My Responsibility. She slowly undressed in the film and asked viewers, “Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips? The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted?”
“Do you really wanna go back in time?”
She delivered a powerful message as she continued and said if she wears what is comfortable, she will not be a woman. Further adding the singer said, if she shed layers, she would be called a slut. The artist said that even when they haven’t seen her body, they still judge it or judge her for it.
Billie questioned, “Why to make assumptions about people based on their size?” Before she released the powerful film, she was attacked online for posting pictures of herself donning a swimsuit.
In an interview, the Lovely singer said she cannot win. The singer, however, managed to shut down her body shamers. In her latest Instagram post, she seemed to have hinted where the body-shamers should go. She posted a picture of herself and wrote, “Do you really wanna go back in time?”
However, despite the critics, Billie’s fans came to her rescue and demanded that people stop with the body shaming. They called out critics and told them to let her live. Some fans were furious that people would have the guts to judge an 18-year-old for her natural body.
