We love a celebrity that speaks their mind and sticks up for themselves. Just because you are famous, doesn’t mean that you have to hold your tongue and let people abuse you. That’s why we love Selena Gomez.
The star has been taking some serious shiz lately because she put on a few pounds (which I couldn’t tell until someone pointed it out). She took to the internet to defend herself as a “fan” body shamed her.
The internet is a harsh place – one that sometimes we’d like to run fast from. The world is a harsh and unforgiving place and in a time where social media rules it – well, let’s just say this shit sucks. I get it people – we all can say whatever we want (freedom of speech and all) – doesn’t mean that we need to. People don’t have the right to put others down.
We commend Selena for standing up for herself. We’re glad that she’s happy and healthy. That’s what we all should be. Admittingly, it’s not right to ask fans to block her, because fans will feel the need to stick up for you – and sometimes those can be really evil remarks too.
Let’s all lift each other up. Life’s too short people. Way too short.
