Rather than retaliate with anger or sadness, the singer chose self-acceptance.
Between performing astounding acts of aerial acrobatics and displaying dazzling feats of strength in her music videos, it’s hard to find a part of Pink’s physique to criticize. Yet, over the weekend a group of detractors took to Twitter to snark on the artist’s body.
It was a photo of the singer snapped at a cancer benefit Saturday night that sparked the hate. Not long after the picture appeared, trolls began attacking her weight, with one even going so far as to call her a “fat bitch.”
Rather than retaliate with anger or sadness, the singer chose self-acceptance, responding to her critics with an eloquent missive where she discussed loving her body and the way she looked in the dress. “While I admit that the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty,” the singer wrote in a note she screengrabbed and posted to Twitter. “My healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off,” she continued before signing off under the name “cheesecake.”
But Pink wasn’t done making her point. After dispatching the statement about her figure, she began posting photos of her posing next to her family captioned with their thoughts about her body.
Fans went wild over the singer’s message. Some were so inspired they began tweeting photos of themselves and their “squishy” bodies.
This latest incident in celebrity body-shaming comes only a week after fellow recording artist Kelly Clarkson was attacked because of her weight. Fox News host Chris Wallace even went so far as to publicly joke about her figure.
