Lady Gaga sends a body-positive message to fans after trolls fat-shamed her
Lady Gaga jumped off a building, put on a killer performance, and faced the haters with majestic grace.
During Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show, body-shaming trolls took to Twitter to call the star “fat” and “flabby.” In response, she posted a wonderfully uplifting message on her Instagram to stick it to the haters and encourage her fans.
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. That’s the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga

Without giving the trolls the satisfaction of bringing her down, she shut down the negativity with self respect, and encouraged her fans to take the same approach. Talk about turning a negative into a positive.
“I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” Gaga wrote. “Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions.”
Girl, we couldn’t agree more.
