Tyra Banks Shuts Down Her Body Shamers

It’s hard for women out there, especially with the fashion industry setting impossible body standards and it’s undoubtedly harder for the models who actually have to uphold these body standards, because it’s their job. God forbid that a former model should attach some flesh to her bones, you know the internet is gonna break that day.

A decade ago, Tyra Banks lashed out at the people trying to bring her down and she has been preaching the gospel ever since. In 2007, some pictures of Tyra Banks were published in the tabloids and they had some very unflattering titles like ‘ Thigh-ra Banks’, ‘ America’s Next Top Waddle’ and ‘Tyra Porkchops’. Well, she certainly did not take that lying down.

She donned the same swim suit and went on her talk show and delivered the death blow, ‘ I have one thing to say to you: kiss my fat ass!’ She also stands by the fact that women do not need to be under weight to be models, she was a good 20-30 pounds over the normal model size back in her prime. Till date, she still spreads the word and maintains the notion that she looks better now than when she was ‘skinny’.

Demi Lovato Shuts Down Body Shamers

Some people get their name written in the ‘Body Shamer Slammers’ book of fame and believe us when we say that Demi has earned a spot at the top of the list, some may even say that she has adopted a rather aggressive approach to proving her point.

No doubt the media and general public has been on her case, once when she returned to the red carpet after rehab, she had a lot of people comment on her weight. Turns out she was ready for that, as she took to Twitter to say her mind. ‘ Guess what, I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight you obviously aren’t.’

In more recent times, she has been known to be a tad bit harsh when trying to pass across her point, from body shaming other women for being skinny to picking on a fan who sketched her with a fuller chest and a smaller waist. She was even planning to quit showbiz to become a full time activist, we will be on the look out for her.

Gabourey Sidibe Shuts Down Body Shamers

It’s a hard life out there for those who are clinically overweight, even more so when they are public figures, but our girl Gabourey had something to say to haters that made a very failed attempt to make fun of her after the 2014 Golden Globes Award ceremony.

She took to Twitter to show them that she was not buying what they were selling, here is whats she posted, ‘ To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK.’ If the #JK at the end didn’t fill you in, she most definitely did not cry. Maybe next time they would steer clear.

Lady Gaga Shuts Down Body Haters

After the Poker Face singer put on a few extra pounds, best believe that the body shamers were lying in waiting. Even as recently as this year she was trolled for her performance during the Super Bowl. Some mean things were said,’ Watching Lady GaGa’s stomach hang over her pants,’ one Twitter user mocked.

‘ I can see why Lady Gaga was breathing so heavy, her stomach was protesting her #SuperBowl performance,’ another added. Well, she had something to say to them as she took to Instagram to  post, ‘ 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.’

She added some career advice, ‘ Be you, and be relentlessly you, that’s the stuff of champions.’ You can try to put her down on account of a little belly fat, but it’s gonna take a bit more than that.

Khloe Kardashian Shuts Down Body Shamers

This list would not be complete without her on it, for quite the number of years Chloe was under serious heat for her size and what made it worse was that it was not only from within. Her mother, Kris Jenner, had been known to chime in once in a while. She has often used the reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as an avenue to put down such remarks.

Even more so when her brother Rob started receiving some of the heat as well, she went on Twitter to post, ‘ What shallow souls some of you are. It’s sickening to critique anyone off of their appearance. Grow up!’
